Make it Natural: Gluten-Free Pie Crust

With Thanksgiving upon us in just a couple of weeks, we're starting to dream of all the pies that will be part of the feast. There's no need for dietary restrictions to keep you from enjoying your favorite Thanksgiving dessert! We revisited our gluten-free pie crust recipe in preparation for the holidays, and we think it's better than ever. This recipe is similar to a classic pie crust, but instead of wheat flour, we used a combination of potato starch, tapioca flour, millet flour and almond meal. This crust is perfect for everything from pumpkin pie to quiche. If you're using it for a savory recipe, be sure to leave out the sugar. We also have recipes for simple pie crust and dairy-free pie crust. And, of course, our stores offer a selection of frozen prepared pie crusts, including some gluten-free options. These are great to keep in the freezer for holiday pie making. Now is a great time to start planning your holiday menus and trying out some recipes. Check out our selection of holiday recipes, including sections of gluten-free and dairy-free recipes. Or, browse our full recipe selection by category. We've got a great guide to entertaining guests with special dietary needs, and we've got more handy tips and a video packed with delicious ideas for special diets. Happy holiday baking!
