Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe


Gluten-Free Pie Crust via Providence Journal

1 cup white rice flour

1/2 cup potato starch

1/4 cup tapioca flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces (size of peas)

1 large egg, beaten

1 tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar (not malt vinegar)

3 to 4 tablespoon ice water

Combine rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly. Form well in center and then add egg and vinegar. Stir gently with fork until just blended. Sprinkle with water, blend together with a fork and clean hands until mixture just holds together and forms a ball. Do not add to much water and do not over mix with warm hands.

Make into a ball and then divide dough in half. Cover one half with plastic wrap and set aside.

Place remaining half on lightly rice floured sheet of wax paper. Put another piece of wax paper on top of dough. Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Slowly peal back the top sheet of wax paper.

Invert dough into a 9 inch deep dish (4 cup volume) pie plate. Slowly peal away second sheet of wax paper.

Hint: When rolling on either plastic wrap or wax paper wet the counter surface as this will help hold down the wax paper or plastic wrap.

Makes one top and bottom 2 crust pie sheets. Enjoy!

    I like the idea of using wax paper to help hold it together while rolling it out. I hear that technique works quite well and it would be handy for a delicate gluten-free crust!

      Yes, it seems that way! I wish I were more skilled in the baking arena. Growing up with a pastry chef mom, I left all the baking to her! When diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I didn’t jump into the baking world the way I should have.
