  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
  • Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter until it is in tiny pieces.
  • In a small bowl, add wet ingredients and mix.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix. Use your hands to make a dough ball.
  • Place the dough ball onto a piece of wax paper.
  • Top with another piece of wax paper and use a rolling pin to roll flat in a circle shape.
  • Remove the top piece of wax paper. Place the dough dough side to the greased pan and drop in. Remove the top piece of wax paper.

  1. I have tested this recipe with Cup4Cup, King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours. Note Cup4Cup turns out the flakiest.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter.
  4. These pie crust will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
