Gluten Free Pie Crust recipe with a Perfect Blueberry Filling to fill your pie hole with. So soft, flaky and buttery that the average pie crust lover won’t have a clue it’s gloriously gluten free. (Low sugar, Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Vegan friendly)
Mmmm pie. Delicious whipped cream dollop worthy pie. Blueberry pie is a favorite and takes me to a happy place
I haven’t been able to take myself to this pie-loving happy place in a while since I changed to a gluten-free lifestyle.
I knew I simply had to create a flaky and buttery gluten free pie crust to mimic what I grew up with. Minus the crisco however, because even though as I kid I would eat crisco with a spoon and sprinkle sugar on it… Bad Mini Lindsay, Bad!
I’m not sure I’ve ever actually admitted to my mother I would do that. Just like I would climb to the veryyyyyy tippy top of the kitchen cabinets to eat those Flintstone child vitamins. I ate them like candy.
Chewable Vitamins and Crisco with sugar were not wise decisions and I can’t believe I’m admitting this to the world. It’s out there now … anddddd getting back to subject…
Flaky Gluten Free Pie Crust and the Delicious Filling Options
- Apple (Actually if you use this apple crisp filling recipe you will be golden)
And I like to use good ole’ fashioned butter.
TIP: Our dairy-free individuals, I never forget about you. This has been tested with a dairy-free butter alternative and turned out beautifully.
Use butter of some sorts regardless. Good ole’ butter.
It’s a really easy dough to work with, not too sticky and not so dry that it crumbles.
If you have a favorite pie filling, go for it. During this time in Michigan, my favorite delicious blueberries begin to start popping up in the stores.
I had a batch of frozen blueberries leftover in my freezer. I’ve made this with 100% fresh blueberries and also frozen blueberries. Both turned out wonderfully.
Filling is so super simple it amazes me there are canned versions out there. Ditch those cans! Take this sweet blueberry filling paired with our buttery gluten-free pie crust and bam we have ourselves an amazing dessert.
Also, did you know how freakin’ simple it is to make your own whipped cream?
Dig in and serve up a slice of all-natural gluten-free pie deliciousness!
