Pie CRust


  • 3/4 cup of butter/margin, cubed
  • 1/4 cups of rice flour
  • 1 tbsp. ice water
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten


  1. Measure all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, use large whisk to blend ingredients.
  2. Add cubed butter and blend until the mixture looks loose, dry crumbs. Add slightly beaten egg and beat until incorporated in the flour mixture. Add 1 tablespoon of ice water whisk until evenly mixed in with the other ingredients. If you can squish into a ball than don’t add anything, but if its to fry than add 1/4 tsp. more of ice water.
  3. Collect all of the dough and form into a ball, cover in wax paper and stick into the refrigerator, until ready to use.
  4. When ready, take out of the refrigerator and squish the dough into the bottom of the pie pan and up the sides.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork so it doesn’t bubble.
  7. Once the oven is heated to the correct temperature place the pie crust inside and set a timer for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden.


I found that this recipe did not roll to well, so I will be trying to change the ingredients, so that it will roll out better. Once I make the perfect recipe for a pie crust I will share it here with you.
