THE BEST Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Great gluten-free pie crusts are hard to come by, no fear, I've searched high and low and found THE BEST gluten-free pie crust that will leave you satisfied and is great for any pie!  It holds together so well, and does not crumble AT ALL.  You won't believe it's gluten-free.



Ingredients [for 2 crusts]:
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Large egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp very cold water
Directions:
  • Pre-heat oven to 350*
  • Combine the flour and salt in a medium bowl.  Cut in the butter with a fork until the mixture becomes crumbly.  
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg and apple cider vinegar
  • Add the egg & vinegar mixture
  • Use dough hook on your mixer and mix ingredients

  • Add the very cold water and mix together
  • Use your hands and form into a ball

 
  • Next, take the ball and place on wax paper
  • Split the ball in half [you can freeze or use the other half]
  • Take a second piece of wax paper and place over top of the dough and flatten
  • Roll out the dough to approx. 1/4-1/8 inch thick [I use a wine bottle]


  • Once ready, take off the first sheet of wax paper, place your pie dish over top, flip, and set your dough
  • Take excess dough off edges and use a spoon to flatten dough against the dish, crimp if you wish



Now you're ready to fill the crust with your favorite pie filling!

With most pies, bake 350* for 40 minutes.

Enjoy!

with love, mel
