Gluten Free Pie Crust With A Dairy Free Option

Gluten Free Pie Crust With A Dairy Free Option is a great alternative for those on a GF or DF diet and is easy to make.
Gluten Free Pie Crust with a Dairy Free Option
  Today I'm here to tell you if you have gluten intolerant family member, you are gluten intolerant or just looking to limit your wheat consumption you need to make this pie crust!
It is the perfect pie crust to enjoy with dietary restrictions, you'll never be able to tell it's gluten free. It is amazing!  
But best of all you can't over work the dough like traditional pie crust or add too much water since it lacks gluten which  traditionally makes the dough tough.
My sweet friend Rachelle over at Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle has been telling me since before the beginning of summer I had to make this Gluten Free Dairy Free Pie Crust From Emeril Lagasse
Rachelle has celiacs and a dairy sensitive along with so many of my readers so I figured I was long over due to try the recipe out for myself and see if it passed our families taste test with the holidays fast approaching.
With a few modifications and the use of my food processor to simplify the making of the dough, I am excited to tell you this is the Prefect Gluten Free Pie Crust, so easy to make and your gluten eating family won't miss a thing!

Continue to pulse dough until dough comes to together and is smooth about 5-10 times.
Divide dough in 2 and wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
The original recipe called for 30 minutes but it seemed to make the dough a little bit too firm when it came to shaping.

    1. I would probably use a tablespoon of ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons water if a nutty taste would work well with your filling if not I would look for a vegan egg substitute in the whole foods section of your grocery store.

  3. Can you use parchment paper instead of plastic wrap?

    1. Hi! You can use parchment paper instead of plastic wrap. I would probably sprinkle a little extra rice flour over the dough before rolling because parchment paper has a tendency to wrinkle a little and sticks a bit more to dough. I've done it both ways and just find using plastic wrap the easiest to prevent the dough from sticking. Let me know if you have anymore questions! Thanks, Serena

  4. Can I use an all purpose gf flour?

    1. You could try it! I personally haven't tried it. You'll want to make sure to use xantham gum since it works as a binder if it's not in your flour. Thanks, Serena

  5. Have you tried it with Earth Balance before? I have tried a different pie crust recipe using Earth Balance and it didn't turn out. I'm hoping you've had success.

  7. Oh my goodness. This recipe is amazing! I just made a pumpkin pie with this and it is delicious. I have never tried making a gluten free pie crust because my gluten-full pie crusts were always such failures. This recipe is easier and tastier than any other crust I've made. Thank you!!

  8. Thanks for this recipe. The dough was beautiful and easy to handle. I made butter tarts with it and they turned out great. There's no yukky aftertaste that a lot of gluten free desserts have. This is now my go-to recipe for GF pie crust.
