Here is my tried-and-true gluten-free pie crust.  I’ve been tweaking this recipe for several months and finally ended up with good results.


This simple recipe relies on almond meal and Shoshanna’s gluten-free flour mix to create an easy-to-work with push-in pie crust.  It bakes beautifully and tastes delicious!


Gluten-free Pie Crust


{Favorite Gluten-Free Pie Crust}

1 scant C almond meal

½ C Shoshanna’s Gluten-free Flour Mix

½ C arrowroot powder

1 to 2 TBSP slightly ground, rolled oats (optional)

2 tsp additional xanthan gum

5 TBSP softened butter

1 or 2 TBSP cold water


In a mixing bowl, combine almond meal, gluten-free flour mix, arrowroot, rolled oats (if desired), and xanthan gum.


Cut in softened butter until dough is coarse and moist.  Add just enough cold water (one or two TBSP) to form a moist ball.  Sprinkle a little additional gluten-free flour and work dough into a smooth ball.


Press into a buttered 9-inch pie plate.  Fill with desired pie filling and bake.

  2. I would really love to see this post, but I’ve been trying for over an hour to get it to load. My husband likes pies so much better than cakes, but I haven’t been successful with a pie since we went gluten free. I need this recipe!
