Our NEW Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix is Easy-As-Pie {Giveaway}

Did you know that the phrase “Easy as Pie” actually refers to eating pie? Yeah, me neither. I got curious one day after we started playing around with this new product. I knew it couldn’t be right, because making pie is anything but easy. Turns out that I was right about the saying and wrong about making pie. This new pie crust mix that we’ve just released is really easy to make. As with any pie crust, the key points are cold butter (or shortening), ice cold water and a little patience.

New Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix from Bob's Red Mill

I am not joking when I say that we must have tested at least a dozen slightly different flour blends before picking the one that we felt produced just the right results. There was a time this summer when there was a new apple pie (or two) to taste every single day at our office. It got to the point where you sort of counted on that piece of pie to go with your cup of coffee. We tested A LOT of pie and the thing we heard over and over again was, “is this really gluten free?” People didn’t believe that a gluten free crust could produce results like a wheat-based crust. It was flaky and buttery and all the delicious things a pie should be. It wasn’t pale or gummy or hard-as-a-rock. Our pie was golden brown, light and crispy. 

We have blended very fine rice flours with potato starch and tapioca flour to produce a beautiful texture and added a dash of xanthan gum to help the crust hold together and a sprinkle of sugar and sea salt to complement your fillings. The crust is not too sweet, so it’s perfect for savory or sweet pies. Not only did we work really hard on the recipe, but we spent a lot of time on the directions. We want your gluten free pie crust to be perfect! On top of that, we developed quite a few stellar pie recipes to inspire you in the kitchen. From apple and pumpkin pie to turkey pot pie, strawberry hand pies and almond pear galettes, you can find all of our delicious pie recipes here.

Now, we want you to try it!
