Old Fashioned Pie Crust

This pie crust is nice because you can actually roll it out.  While you do need to use a little more TLC because it’s gluten free, I think you’ll find the tad bit more care needed to make it will be worth the effort once you taste it!

Makes a double crust. If needed, halve the recipe or wrap well with plastic wrap and store the other half in the freezer.

In your food processor add the following ingredients in order:

3 C. Superfine Rice Flour

1 tsp. Guar Gum

1 tsp. Salt

Pulse for a few seconds to combine.

½ Stick of Chilled, Unsalted Butter, cut into chunks

Pulse a few more seconds until the butter is thoroughly broken up

2 Egg

4 Ounces Regular Cream Cheese

Pulse again for a few seconds.

½ and ½ (about 6-8 T.) –while pulsing, add only as much cream as needed to form a dough. The finished product should form itself into a ball.

Turn out onto waxed paper lightly dusted with GF flour. Use more flour as necessary while rolling out. Once rolled to the desired size, flip the waxed paper upside down (pastry side down) into a pie plate. Gently press down into the pie plate and then carefully remove the waxed paper. Fill with your favorite pie or quiche recipe, crimp edges and bake according to each pie recipe’s instructions.
