Lily's Gluten-Free Pie Crust

This recipe came from the Sprue-nik Press, which is published by the Tri-County Celiac Sprue Support Group (TCCSSG), a local chapter of CSA/USA located in southeast Michigan.

1/3 cup brown or white rice flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup (5 Tablespoon) butter
1-½ Tablespoon corn starch
1 egg, beaten
1/3 teaspoon salt
½ to 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Have eggs and butter cold for best results. Combine flours, starches, salt, xanthan gum, and sugar into a mixing bowl. Cut cold butter into slices and then work it into the flour mixture with hands or a pastry cutter until the dough feels slightly moist and begins to hold together.

Add the beaten egg and vinegar to the flour mixture and stir with a spoon or fork until it begins to stiffen. The dough will be quite soft at first but will firm up. Is it firms up, form it into a ball and work it a little with your hands. Use a little tapioca flour if necessary to keep your hands from getting sticky.

Roll the dough out between two pieces of wax paper, turning and peeling off paper as necessary to smooth out wrinkles. Leave the paper on the pie dough to turn it. When it is ready for a pie pan, peel the top layer of paper off, hold the lightly greased pan over the dough, and slip your other hand under the bottom paper and dough. Lift it into the pan as you flip it all over.

Smooth the dough into the pan before removing the wax paper. Again peel it off; dont lift it off. Crimp edges as desired. Prick with a fork if a baked pie shell is desired and bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes.

Double the ingredients for a two-crust pie. Dont attempt to fold the top pie crust. A two-crust pie will bake one hour or a bit longer.

This recipe comes from Lifeline, Summer 1996, pg. 5. It is Lily Mae Pattens recipe.

This was the best crust ever. It didn't even taste like eating rice flour and it was so easy to work with. Thanks!
