Recommended Posts

Getting ready to try Annalise Roberts recipe on pie crust, anyone tried this, or have a good recipe?Tried Gluten Free Pantry's mix, awful and crumbly! Please Advise? :

I think that Annalise Roberts' pie crust recipe is the best! My mom and I even bought Whole Foods fozen pie crusts and they don't even compare to her recipe. I have made several different kinds of pies and they all have come out great.

This is my recipe, it's more like a shortbread and I don't find it crumbly at all:

1 crust recipe--

melt 1/2 c margerine in pie plate (It's less crumbly with margerine than with butter-I use Smart Balance)

add 2 TBS sugar, mix with fork

add 1c gluten-free flour (your choice, whatever you usually use), mix with a fork

Press out into pie plate

refrigerate for ~30 min

fill and bake

Double for a 2 crust recipe, for the top crust--pat or roll out 1/2 into a circle a bit bigger than the top of pie plate onto parchment and refrigerate ~10 minutes-still needs to be a bit pliable to turn over filled pie, peel off parchment, crimp edges, bake as directed

So far Bette Hagman and Analise Robert's recipes for pie crust have worked out best for me. I still experiment with other recipes, always trying to improve......and end up going back to these 2 recipes .

I love the Gluten Free Pantry pie crust mix, I don't find it crumbly at all. There are a few things I do that might help with that. I used ice water instead of cold water, I make it pretty darn moist at first, and I always refrigerate it for two hours before using. I also always cover the crust with a shield when baking, the one time I did not do that the crust was rather crumbly.

I, too, use Bette Hagman's recipe. I think its called Tender Vinegar Pie Crust. I mix all of my ingredients right in my Kitchen Aid; first cutting the shortening into the dry ingredients and then adding the wet and mix until it gathers up in a ball.

However, I think the reason this always turns out so great for me is the rolling. I use one of those zippered circles (available at kitchen stores) to roll it out. No splitting, no tearing, just a perfect circle. Couldn't bake a pie without it.

Katydid, you are reading my mind....today I made a cherry pie, and was thinking if one of those circles would work out.......do you put plastic wrap over the dough first to keep it from sticking to the circle??
