gluten free pie crust recipe

Thanksgiving is right around the corner here in Canada and I thought I’d get 5 new recipes out to you this week.

Through the years I have made my share of thanksgiving desserts, but one dessert you cannot have it seems is pumpkin pie.

I decided to make a simple gluten free pie crust using Robin Hood’s new gluten free flour. Why use Robin Hood gluten free flour blend?

It is readily available in most grocery stores and is not overly expensive compared to other gluten free flour blends.

This recipe makes enough for a single crust pie and is quite easy to make.

Recipe: Gluten Free Pie Crust
Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup Robin Hood gluten free flour blend
1/4 cup arrowroot starch
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold lard
1/4 cup cold butter
about 8 Tbsp cold water

In a small bowl whisk the gluten free flour blend, arrowroot starch, xanthan gum and salt.

Add dry ingredients to a stand mixer.

With machine running on low, cut up lard and butter into small squares and add to dry ingredients.

Do not overmix. You are looking for the dough to have pea sized pieces in it.

Sprinkle 1 Tbsp of cold water over flour mixture and blend on low.

Repeat moistening flour with 1 Tbsp of cold water at a tie until all the flour mixture is moistened.

For me that took 8 Tbsp of water.

Remove dough from bowl and roll into a ball.

Cover with plastic wrap until ready to use.

I roll my gluten free pie crust dough on a sheet of parchment paper. This way I am not adding too much flour to the dough when rolling.

I live in Seattle and Robin Hood Flour is not to my knowledge, available.
Please think of sharing a flour blend to put together at home,that makes a good crust.

Thank you.

Your pie looks so good! This will definitely be on our Thanksgiving table this weekend. Thank you for the great recipe.

Thank you so much for this! It will be nice to make and actually EAT the pie I make this thanksgiving! (PS: I love the new robinhood flour too!)

You probably could use another gluten free flour mix instead of the Robin Hood gluten free flour. Whole Foods in Seattle would have quite a few gluten free flour blend options.

you are welcome!

When I entertain guests I pretty much host gluten free functions. I figure this way I do not have to worry about getting sick

I have not heard of Robin Hood Flour in Yakima. We are barely getting wheat free grocery aisles. But would Bob’s Red Mill; All Purpose Baking Flour work in place?

Robin Hood flour is available at Safeways. In the states you do have Safeway plus Randalls
