16 servings or two 9-inch deep-dish crusts
Truly versatile, this gluten-free crust will taste great paired with LIBBY’S® Famous Pumpkin Pie Filling but can also be used to make a two-crust pie. This dough will be easiest to handle and roll when it is used immediately after it's prepared. This “gluten free” recipe was developed using products either labeled as “gluten-free” or likely to be gluten free based on the ingredients typically listed on the products’ labels. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that any non-Nestlé product in this recipe is gluten free. We recommend reading all product labels thoroughly, checking with the food’s manufacturer for gluten content if the product is not labeled as “gluten free,” and being careful to keep gluten-containing ingredients away from the recipe ingredients and recipe preparation area.
KEY INGREDIENTS
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider or white vinegar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons very cold water
MAKE IT
Step 1
Combine rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly. Form well in center. Add egg and vinegar; stir gently with a fork until just blended. Sprinkle with water; blend together with a fork and clean hands until mixture just holds together and forms a ball. (Be careful not to add too much water as dough will be hard to roll.)
Step 2
Shape dough into ball and divide in half. Cover one half with plastic wrap; set aside. Place remaining half on lightly floured (use rice flour) sheet of wax paper. Top with additional piece of wax paper. Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Remove top sheet of wax paper and invert dough into 9-inch deep-dish (4-cup volume) pie plate. Slowly peel away wax paper. Trim excess crust. Turn edge under; crimp as desired. Repeat with remaining half.
