Gluten Free Pie FAQ:

What are your biggest challenges when you make a pie crust?

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 to make 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!

Why is my pie crust dry?

Crusts can easily dry in baking if you don’t use enough moisture. I like to use a lot of butter for increased moisture. Is your pie crust holding together when rolling, 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.

How do you make your crust flaky?

If you like a flaky pie crust, 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.

How do you keep a pie crust from getting soggy?

A soggy crust can be common in gluten-free baking. Before adding the filling, you want to pre-bake your gluten-free crust for a few minutes. If you are still getting a soggy pie crust, you have too much moisture in your filling. 

How do you transport a pie without it breaking?

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.

How long will a pie keep fresh?

A pie should keep fresh for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

Can you freeze pie?

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 foil. It should keep fresh for up to three months in the freezer.

This resource guide of 50+ delicious pie recipes covers everything from the best pie crust to pie fillings, so don’t forget to bookmark it so you can refer back to it anytime you need to. It’s everything you need to know about making the perfect gluten-free pies in one easy place!

What Gluten Free Flour Blend is Best For Pie?

Many gluten free flour blends work with pie. I haven’t tested them all, but these four are my favorite. If you can have dairy, Cup4Cup is the best in yielding a perfectly flaky golden crust. If you are dairy-free, the other gluten free flour blends work really well too. King Arthur Measure for Measure, Better Batter, Jules GF, Namaste, and Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 also work well.

If you can’t have xanthan or guar gum, my DIY Gluten Free Flour Blend recipe also works well in my pie crust recipe. It uses psyllium husk as the binder, so no gums are necessary!

Hands shaping pie crust dough.

Pie wouldn’t be a pie without the crust. The crust is THE most important part of your gluten free pie recipe. You could make a gluten-free pie without the crust, but why would you want to?

Your pie crust can be made from different flours, from your standard gluten-free flour blend to almond flour and coconut flour. Here are many ideas to experiment with to see what works best for you.

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 many people on a paleo diet embrace. I love this because the almond flour in the pie crust adds a protein boost that helps balance the sugar in the pie.

I use primarily Anthony’s Premium Blanched Almond Flour and Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour.

Fruit Pie Recipes:

Fruit pies are loaded with juicy, sweet fruits. That is what I love most about a fruit pie recipe; you can fill it with any fruit. The fruit can be fresh, frozen, or even from a can. The pie crust dough bakes in with fruity flavors and makes pies delicious.

Galette Recipes:

If you don’t like making two pie crusts, a gluten-free galette is a great way to get the pie flavors.

Galettes are easy to make on a cookie sheet! Put your rolled-out pie crust dough on a cookie sheet, top it with fruit or your favorite pie filling, and fold up the edges of the pie crust around the filling.

🔑 Sandi says: Ensure your cookie sheet has sides so the juices don’t leak out into your oven during baking. Cleaning the baked-on juices off the bottom of your oven is hard! Bake and enjoy it!

Tart 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!

Savory Pies:

I feel like I wouldn’t be doing this pie article 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 cottage pies.

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 entirely through.
  • Mi-Del makes gluten-free graham crackers and gingersnap crusts. These are quite good but often break easily, so ordering online is risky. Most grocery stores carry them.
  • Mixes. Several companies that make gluten-free pie crust mixes including Bob’s Red Mill, Glutino, King Arthur, Cup4Cup, and XO Baking Company.
