A tasty gluten-free pie crust. And it’s vegan too! This recipe makes 1 pie crust — simply double the recipe for pies that require both a top and bottom crust.
- 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Brown Rice Flour, or other brand, plus a little extra
- 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Garbanzo Bean Flour, or other brand
- 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Tapioca flour*, or other brand
- 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Super Fine Gluten-Free Almond Meal Flour, or other brand
- 1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt, finely ground
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, chilled
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
- Mix with clean hands, then form into a large ball. The dough should be moist, yet a little crumbly.
- Dust a rolling pin with a little of the extra brown rice flour, and roll the dough to make a crust that is less than 1/4-inch thick. It’s okay if it brakes apart a little, or crumbles some. With clean hands, press the crust into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch oven safe pie plate.
- If you plan to use just 1 bottom crust, bake in a preheated 325º F oven for 35 minutes or until firm and golden. If you plan to use 1 bottom crust plus 1 top crust, bake the bottom crust for 25 minutes or cooked until firm. Remove from oven and let cool.
- Use a large wooden spoon to scoop any precooked vegan and gluten-free pie filling** onto the baked pie crust. Spread evenly. If using 1 pie crust, slice and serve. If using 1 bottom crust plus 1 top crust, continue onto the next step.
- Top the pie with the second pie crust. If there are any crumbs, place them around the edge of top pie crust. To crimp, use a fork to press down on the edges. Also use the fork to poke some holes in the center of the crust.
- Return the pie to the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the top is firm and golden. Slice and serve. If you like, top the pie with a dollop of Coconut Whipped Cream, or a scoop of Nondairy Vanilla Ice Cream.
