This pie is one of the easiest,
simplest pies to make,
unless you make it
I've made this pie for years,
But now with my Gluten and Wheat
I've had to stop making some
But, now with great GF flours
I can make my favorite desserts
The hardest part is the crust!
What a nightmare.
The directions tell you to place dough
between parchment paper
Easier said than done.
I'm rolling it out like I did when I made
regular pie crust,
well big mistake, you can't do that.
You have to GENTLY
roll it out,
barely pushing down otherwise it
It takes a lot of patience to make
GF pie crusts,
but it is worth it in the end.
Now after rolling it out,
flip it onto your
Oh my, now I'm frustrated,
they also don't tell
you that this is going to happen,
why bother rolling it out?
So after some fixing up, squeezing
together, piecing it like
Looks pretty, heh?
Then they tell you to fold over edges
HA! Yea right, I wasn't messing
with it after what
happened, so I took a fork and press
along the edge of the crust.
So the filling I made GF as well, not
a problem there.
Filled the crust and baked it and
I was a very happy girl,
that's for sure!
So, I will attach the crust recipe for you
(this is a pumpkin pie recipe but it has the crust recipe as well)
(I'm having some for breakfast can't help it)
