    I am trying your recipe for this pie crust- baking now. The 1/2 cup water amount is too much! I made it too sloppy, even with a scant 1/4 cup. I had to scoop it up and add more flour. Hope it turns out!

      Tish, more than likely you used a different flour than the one I used, unfortunately, no two gluten-free all-purpose flours are the same. You did the right thing and that is to add extra flour if it is too wet and if it was too dry add extra liquid. I have made this recipe ton of times and it has never failed me.

    Thanks for posting this recipe! Is there a GF flour brand that you recommend?

    Can this be used as tart dough?

    Do you have to bake the crust before filling? My pie recipe does not call for using a precooked crust.

      It depends on what you are making. Well, it should be fine to add your filling then bake as in the case of a sweet potato pie.

    Have you tried using this for hand pies?

      I haven’t had the chance but it should be great.

    Hey, I am in the mood for baking…looking at your desserts. I have a few I am going to try…As I mentioned in your pizza recipe I am making my own flour mix… something like this
    1 cup brown rice flour
    1 cup sorghum flour
    1/3 cup tapioca flour/starch
    2/3 cup potato starch

    However I notice the flour you use has Xanthan Gum in it. Will it matter if I don’t add that in my mix?

      Hello Phylicea, your blend looks great, I find that if I use 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds (preferably the golden type) plus 1/4 cup water It works perfectly. I only use these storebought blends because of convenience. Hope you enjoy!

        Hi! This may seem silly, but can I use regular butter? I’m having trouble finding gluten free crust recipes that aren’t also vegan or dairy-free!

      My power is out and I am working from my phone so I must have accidentally published it.
