Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"I have tried a lot of recipes trying to find one that compared with the traditional wheat crust that I have been missing. After throwing away many batches, I finally came up with this one and my family loves it. They said they couldn't tell the difference (I am not sure I believe that) but it sure did satisfy my cravings. Hope you like it too."

  1. Combine arrowroot starch, white rice flour, brown rice flour, and sugar in a food processor; pulse until blended. Add butter to flour mixture and pulse until mixture is the consistency of oatmeal.
  2. Transfer flour-butter mixture to a bowl; add eggs and vinegar. Knead mixture just until blended. Mix water, 1 tablespoon at a time, into dough (if dough is too dry) until dough holds together. Split dough into 2 balls, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  3. Spread a piece of plastic wrap on a work surface and sprinkle with arrowroot starch. Place 1 dough ball on the plastic wrap and flatten using your hands. Dust rolling pin with arrowroot starch and roll over dough until even thickness and about 9 inches in diameter. Repeat with remaining dough.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I use weights for the flours and fat as it is far more accurate and ensures a better result for gluten-free baking. I use 100g white rice flour, 100g brown rice flour, 100g arrowroot flour, and 200g cold butter.

have made this exactly according to recipe a few times, & each time came out perfect. White vinegar is not offensive as it may sound, but i like to replace it with lemon juice plus a tsp vanil...

Worked well. I made this then froze it for two days before thawing and rolling out. I did not add the sugar. The taste is nice, the texture is flaky. Leaving some larger chunks of butter aid in ...

Of course, any gluten free pie crust is going to not be as good as wheat, but that's the price we pay. For a GF crust, this is way better than any I've tried. Even my husband was pleasantly su...

Pretty good. Based on the ingredients I doubted it would be flaky, as egg invokes cakey, but it is. I cut the recipe in half which was plenty for a single pie bottom crust. You would need to use...

Used gluten-free flour in place of all the other flours. It was a hit at Thanksgiving. Even people not on a gluten-free diet said it was not any different than regular piecrust.

Made this as the crust for a pumpkin pie. My gluten-free, dairy-free daughter said it was excellent.

This crust is AMAZING! Next time I think I will do 1/2 shortening, 1/2 butter instead of all butter. I did an egg wash for my pie with a sprinkle of sugar. I make a rhubarb pie with this crust ...

Iva e say that it difficult at first but the more I made this dough the easier it became as how simple it was. I use this receipt all the time. I absolutely love it and it tastes great.

Awesome! The first piecrust I've had in 30 years! It's sturdy, flaky, and delicious. Baked just the shell for 20 minutes or so until lightly browned before finishing with lemon curd and meringu...
