On being a mom, a nerd and everything else...

I made this yummy Vegan & Gluten-Free Pie Crust. Im writing about the crust because it was the only thing that turned-out right about the recipe I set out to make.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (like what you use on cereal--no need to crack open a can)
  • ½ tspn sugar
  • ¼ tspn salt
  • 1½ cup gluten-free flour blend (I use Bobs Redmill Baking Flour)

Directions

  • Now, lots of other recipes will tell you how complex and problematic pie crusts are. Not me. This is easy.
  • Dump all the dry ingredients together and stir.
  • Mix coconut oil into dry ingredients with a fork.
  • Add coconut milk.
  • Put your hands in there and knead until everything is well combined--crumbly but well combined.
  • Dump dough onto a lightly-floured tea towel or parchment paper to make lifting and putting in the pie pan easier (well get to that, just trust me--dont do it on a cutting board or your counter, put something under it that is pliable).
  • Roll the dough flat. You can use a little more flour to coat your rolling pin, if necessary, just not too much or your pie crust will start to get tough.
  • Lay pie pan face-down on top of the dough (yeah, you heard me right).
  • Gently lift and flip pie pan/dough/towel as one.
  • If pieces crumble off the side, thats ok--just mush pieces back in and fill-in holes.
  • Do whatever it is you were planning--like little flippy edges or flowers or swirls...you go with it...its your pie crust now!
  • However, I dont recommend baking before you place your filling in...unless the pie recipe traditionally calls for it. But you can easily over-bake gluten-free stuff, so just be careful and check the crust often if you do choose to bake before filling.
