I have never really been a fan of pie crust. Don’t get me wrong I still love the filling in the pie, but the crust was always left behind on my plate. So naturally when we went grain-free, I came up with crustless recipes like Pumpkin Pie Pudding, so I could still enjoy the flavor of the pie without the crust.

Until now. 

When you are instructed to bring pie to the holiday table, you must bring pie with a crust. So I had to come up with something grain-free. Not only did it need to be grain-free, but it also had to be edible enough for my family not to know the difference.

After a little bit of experimentation, I finally came up with a grain-free basic pie crust recipethat is very versatile. Fill it with pecan pie, pumpkin, or really flavor it up with chocolate pie filling! The possibilities are endless. You can even freeze the dough in those cases of pie emergencies!

Grain-free Basic Pie Crust Recipe:

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • In a food processor, pulse flour, salt and sugar

pie1

  • Add butter to the food processor, piece by piece, while pulsing. My daughter helped me add the butter 

pie2

  • Add in water, one tablespoon at a time until it is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (up to 4 Tbsp)

pie3

  • Form the dough into a ball on a piece of plastic wrap.

pie4

  • You may need to add a little more water to it at this point to get it to form into a nice ball

pie5

  • Wrap plastic wrap around dough ball and press into a one-inch thick flat disc

pie6

  • Place disc in the fridge to chill for one hour (you can leave the dough in the fridge for up to 3 days, or wrap in foil and freeze for up to 3 months!)
  • Once dough is chilled, roll it out on a Silpat (or a floured surface) using a floured rolling pin

pie7

  • Roll dough into approximately a 14 inch round

pie8

  • Using rolling pin, pick up dough and gently and lie it into a 9-inch pie pan

pie9

  • Using your fingers, gently push the dough into the pie pan, careful not to stretch it
  • Trim off excess dough around the edges or fold it under
  • Crimp dough into the desired edge that you like using your thumb and forefinger

pie10

  • Fill with your desired pie filling and bake according to the instructions of your filling
