Gillian's Foods has frozen gluten-free pie crusts. My Mother said they were good but not great when I just asked her about how the pie crust tasted. I can't find a picture of them on their website (http://www.gilliansfoods.com/) but we bought them in the freezer section of Natural Market Place here in Georgia. In the "order" section and found "9" Pie Shell This awesome shell is great for Quiche and fruit pies (8 oz.) 2.99."

I've tried both the Gillian's pie crust and the Natural Feast... yuck... The taste is important, more important than convenience. If it's not edible it doesn't matter how convenient it is.

Several tasty options, The Gluten Free Pantry's perfect pie crust mix, make up the whole bag (4 crusts) and freeze them... or use melted butter and crumbled gluten-free cookies (whatever ones you like) as a crust... I like Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Chip cookies as a crust

I just tried the GFP perfect pie crust mix, and my rection was perfect? WTF? SO not perfect! What a pain in the butt! Not to mention it fell apart immediatly upon cutting into it.

My husband really liked it though - he liked the flakey-it-falls-apart-ness, though I didn't. I will see if I can find the two ready-made crusts above, rather than use GFP.

It depends on how bad they taste - sometimes convienient is better...

actually- if I have my way, depending on what Ii'm making, I just crush up gluten-free cookies and add butter and sugar. I did it for cheesecake and it rocked! Doesn't take much time either :D

I ordered one from Pam's Celiac Kitchen. I haven't made it yet, so I don't know how good it is, but is it already made and it is in a little metal tray so all you have to do is pop it in the oven. Their website is www dot celiackitchen dot com.

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
