Strawberry season is upon us and we love to pick our own berries. If you are anything like us you end up picking way to many berries, then it is a race to eat them before they spoil. A delicious solution to this problem is to bake a berry pie.
Gluten Free Pantry Perfect Pie Crust Mix is a convenient and easy to make alternative to making pie crust from scratch. This pie crust mix requires additional ingredients such as GF baking powder, butter and eggs. However, the easy to follow directions removes the guess work that often comes with homemade pie crust and can be bit less intimidating.
The final product will vary a bit depending on whether you add butter or shortening to this mix and how thin you roll it out. Thicker and drier dough resulted in a biscuit-like texture. Thinner dough was tricky to handle and easily tore. Either way you end up with a flaky and somewhat crumbly crust. A good tip is to chill the dough after rolling out in order to make it easier to manipulate.
To make pie baking more convenient, it is helpful to make several batches of the dough in advance and freeze them. You can get more information and also purchase Gluten Free Pantry Perfect Pie Crust Mix at GlutenFree.com.
