Make a Gluten-Free Pie Challenge
I’m a bit hesitant to post this challenge, because November is always one of the busiest months of the year for me. This year is no different and is starting off with a trip to Minneapolis, probably another trip to my parents’ to help them pack, and of course, a big family get together at Thanksgiving. Then amid the usual business of home schooling I have to fit in a birthday for one of my kids. So I’m just not sure about fitting in pie making, but I really want to. I never made an apple pie after I found a pie crust recipe I really liked working with, and I want to make a dairy free version of my pumpkin pie. I’ll be happy if I get one of those made.
I think November is a good month for a pie challenge, though. Pumpkins and apples are in season, the weather is cool enough to have the oven on, and the holidays are upon us. I hope you will enjoy this challenge.
The biggest challenge in making a gluten-free pie is the crust. With some pies you can simply go without a crust, but messier pies need something to hold them together, and I think a crust is an important part of a pie. With that in mind, I thought I would link to some gluten-free pie crust recipes.

If you are not a blogger but like to do these challenges at home, I would love it if you take a minute to leave a comment or send me an email letting me know what you’ve done. You don’t need to send the recipe, I would just like to hear that you gave it a try.

I love your pie challenge! I'm actually recreating a pie today and it will use the press-in pie crust that folks want to know about since I mentioned it in my Cushaw Pecan Pie guest post here last week. Anyway, I'll definitely be participating with more than one recipe. We are a pie-loving family!
I made a Pear Galette not to long ago. The crust was made using a mix - and it was quite good. It can easily be used for a more traditional pie. Here's the link: http://iamglutenfree.blogspot.com/2010/09/asian-pear-galette-gluten-free-dairy.html
I am chronicling my GF discovery on my blog.
Thanks for your great website!
And as for pies...I can't wait to participate! This is a great idea for the holiday time!
