Gluten Free Pie FAQ:
For me, the biggest challenge used to be getting that perfect flaky crust. You know the kind of crust I am talking about. It is not easy when you are making a gluten-free pie crust from scratch.
I pulled together this all-inclusive guide to help you so that you have time to try some of these recipes and find your favorites in time for fall and holiday baking!
Crusts can easily get dry in the baking process if you don't use enough moisture. I like to use a lot of butter for increased moisture. When rolling your pie crust, is it holding together, or are crumbles breaking off?
If you have bits breaking off, it is a good sign that you don't have enough moisture in your pie crust dough. You want to make sure to use a lot of butter like in my Gluten-Free Flaky Pie Crust recipe.
If you like a really flaky pie crust, you must use a LOT of butter or shortening. Cut it in with a pastry blender so your flour mix looks like it has tiny pebbles of butter. Those little butter pebbles will add flaky layers.
A soggy crust can be common in gluten-free baking. You want to pre-bake your gluten-free crust for a few minutes before adding the filling. If you are still getting a soggy pie crust, you have too much moisture in your filling.
When we need to take a pie to a friend's house for a celebration, I like to use a special pie container to transport my pie. This keeps the pie safe and prevents the crust from breaking.
A pie should keep fresh for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
It is very easy to freeze a pie. Wrap the pie in plastic wrap. If it fits in a freezer-style bag, that is preferable. If not, wrap the plastic-wrapped pie with a layer of foil. It should keep fresh for up to 3 months in the freezer.
This resource guide of 50+ delicious pie recipes takes you from the best pie crust to pie fillings, so don't forget to bookmark this so you can refer back to it again anytime you need. This is everything you need to know about how to make the perfect gluten-free pies in one easy place!
Pie wouldn't be a pie without the crust. The crust is THE most important part of your pie recipe. You could make a gluten-free pie without the crust, but why would you want to?
Your pie crust can be made out of several different flours from your standard gluten-free flour blend to almond flour and coconut flour. Here are lots of ideas for you to experiment with to see what works best for you.
The BEST Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe:
How to Make A Simple Flaky Gluten-Free Pie Crust with a video to walk you through every step! This gluten-free flour blend works in all of these recipes, and the authors also have some great gluten-free flour blend combinations as well!
Pie Crust Recipes With Coconut Flour:
Coconut flour is perfect for making a gluten-free or paleo pie crust. One thing to watch for is coconut flour absorbs a LOT of moisture, so you will notice that the wet ingredient quantities are much larger in these coconut flour pie crust recipes.
My favorite coconut flours are by Anthony's Organic Coconut Flour and Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour.
Pie Crust Recipes With Almond Flour:
Almond flour is a fun ingredient that a lot of people on a paleo diet embrace. I love this because the almond flour in the pie crust adds a protein boost that helps balance out the sugar in the pie.
I use primarily Anthony's Premium Blanched Almond Flour and Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour.

Fruit Pie Recipes:

Gluten-free tarts can come in all shapes and sizes. You can make a really long tart with a rectangular tart pan and slice it into pieces, or you can make a big round tart. I love these mini tart pans!
The big thing to look for when buying a tart pan is to ensure the bottom pokes out. This makes getting the tart out of the baking pan so easy!

I feel like I wouldn't be doing pie full justice if we didn't take a moment to talk about savory pies. These easy pies come in all types, from tarts to quiche to even cottage pie.
Most of these pies make a savory delicious brunch or breakfast, or if you are crazy like we are, breakfast for dinner!
Pie crusts can be fun when you are making a savory version. Think hash browns, potatoes, or even go crustless.

What Are The Best Store-Bought Gluten-Free Pie Crusts?
Sometimes we don't have time to make a homemade gluten-free pie crust. There are several store-bought gluten-free pie crusts available. Some are better than others, so if I have tried it, I give my personal opinion of it.
- Trader Joe's Gluten-Free Pie Crust. In their frozen section. This pie crust is good, but the bottom layer tends to be thin, so be careful with any juicy pie filling...it can soak completely through.
- Mi-Del makes gluten-free graham crackers and gingersnap crusts. These are quite good, but they often break easily, so ordering online is risky. Most grocery stores carry them.
- Mixes. There are several companies that make gluten-free pie crust mixes including Bob's Red Mill, Glutino, King Arthur, Cup4Cup, and XO Baking Company.

Do You have a delicious recipe for baking crusts for a Tourtiere Pie
Quebecois ( Canada) or French - France. Different meats and ingredient for filling is used in different regions. Cheers, Rosemary. I hope to try to learn how to make delicious Gluten free pastry for a Tourtiere Pie.
Hi Rosemary, I haven't made that pie, but my gluten-free pie crust recipe would definitely hold up to that kind of hearty filling. You would need to double the recipe to have both a top and bottom crust. https://www.fearlessdining.com/how-to-make-a-simple-gluten-free-pie-crust/
I'am looking for a Pie receipe that was featured several years ago in a Thanksgiving issue, and it had Pumpkin seeds, some kind of nuts, and maybe cranberries, if anyone knows of this receipe please forward it on to me. I made this pie at the time and now I,am unable to locate the magazine it was in, and my Granddaughter would like to have it again this Thanksgiving.
Hi Joan, I am not sure I know which recipe this is. If it were in a magazine, there may not be an online version.
Mmmm now I'm starting to crave for pie. These are so good looking that I can't wait to try them all! The whole family would love them!
I am glad...let me know which you make first 🙂
I love pies so this one is a sure hit for me! I want to make them all. Too bad I found this after the holiday season. Well anyway, pies know no season.
I am so glad you are getting some pie inspiration. Pie definitely knows no season :-).
