Instructions
Pie Crust
  1. Combine the flour and xanthan gum in the food processor.
  2. Cut the butter into small pieces. Add the butter to the food processor. Pulse until the mixture has a mealy texture. The butter pieces should be no larger than BBs.

  3. Add the egg and process until you form a dough that sticks together. If your egg wasn't "wet" enough to get a nice soft dough ball (or maybe you live in a dry climate), add the ice cold water one teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
  4. Set your dough onto a sheet of wax paper. Flatten it into a disk about 1 inch thick. Put another piece of wax paper on top. Roll it with a rolling pin until it is 1/4-inch thick (or the desired thickness for what you are making).
  5. Peel off the top wax paper. Turn the dough upside down into your pie dish, position it so that it's centered, peel off the remaining wax paper. Gently press it into the pie pan.
  6. Put a piece of aluminum foil in the pie crust and fill it with dry beans or pie weights. Bake at 400°F for 10-12 minutes or until the edges feel dry. At this point it should be ready to fill and bake as you desire!



    Serves 8.
Recipe Notes

The dough is easy to roll out and shape, using wax paper makes it even easier.

    This made the worst crust I have ever tasted in my life. We threw the pie away. What a bad idea to add egg to the dough. At least, I think that’s what made it so bad. You should take this recipe off your website and save others from ruining their holiday dessert!

      I’m sorry to hear about the poor experience you had with this recipe. This pie crust recipe uses our Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. Because this flour uses bean flours, some find it to have a strong flavor that isn’t desired in a delicate pastry crust. For a pie crust that has a neutral flavor, I highly recommend trying our Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix.
