Pie Crust

7 posts in this topic

Last night I tried to make an apple pie using the gluten free pantry pie crust. It didn't come out too well, what I made looks like a pie and kinda tastes like a pie but was really dry with a funny texture/aftertaste. I was kinda disappointed. Does anyone know of either a better mix or have a good recipe?

This recipe is really good - gluten-eaters can't tell the difference.

Vinegar Pastry by Betty Hagman. This makes two crusts.

1 c white rice flour

3/4 c tapioca flour

3/4 c cornstarch

1 t xanthan gum

3/4 t salt

1 T sugar

Combine all of the above. Cut into it: 3/4 c shortening.

Blend together:

1 egg, lightly beaten

1T vinegar

Add this to the flour mixture.

Add ice water, 1 T at a time, and toss with a fork until it holds together when squeezed without being crumbly or sticky. Divide in 2 and wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 min. At this point you can freeze it.

Roll out between pieces of rice-floured wax paper or plastic wrap, remove the top one and invert into the pie plate. Finish and bake as usual for your pie recipe. Bake all the scraps as well, spread them with jelly, and pretend they're pop tarts. A frozen ball of this stuff keeps pretty well, so you can make a pie now and one a few months from now.

Thanks you. I miss the ease of pie making with the premade pillsbury pie crust.

I've used the coconut flour pastry recipe in the Cooking with Coconut Flour cookbook, it's a bit tricky, but it made really good strawberry rhubarb pie! :)

This Pie crust is FANTASTIC! This is the first gluten free pie crust I made and just last month! :lol: I was afraid of making one because I didn't want all that work and it turn out gross. So for the past three years I just didn't make any pies. :( I didn't have any white rice flour so I used brown rice flour with some buckwheat flour added in instead. My kids and husband loved it as well! I only needed one crust for a pumpkin pie. I took the rest of the dough, rolled it out, smeared butter/brown sugar/cinnamon, rolled it up and sliced it up and baked the little pinwheels. Yummy! I hadn't had those in a long time. It took me back to my childhood when my mom would let me make them out of the leftover pie crust. I also sucessfully made homemade "pop tarts" out of the crust. I made them with cinnamon/sugar and blackberry and strawberry preserves. When cool I made a real thick powdered sugar glaze and frosted the tops and it hardened on them. They were a big hit too.

Not what you asked for, but maybe helpful anyway...

We eat a lot of crustless pumpkin pies because we like pumpkin pie so much. You just make the regular old Libby's pie recipe and pour it into a pie pan to bake as usual. Once cooled (at least mostly cooled) the pieces come out just like they would with a crust. I'm the only one who likes crust in our family anyway, so this is a no-brainer for our every other week pumpkin pies in the fall. I've also made a toasted almond crust by toasting almonds on stove top, grinding in food processor, adding sugar and melted butter. It's excellent for cheesecake but is also wonderful in place of graham cracker crusts for pies that call for that kind of crust.

I make crustless pumpkin pie all the time, I actually prefer it that way now :)

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
