Gluten-free pie crust

Makes one pie crust


  • 1 cup rice or almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2-3 tablespoons ice water


  1. Preheat oven at 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine salt and flour in a mixing bowl.
  3. Thoroughly add shortening to salt and flour.
  4. Add in ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until the rice or almond flour is moistened and dough almost cleans the sides of the bowl. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of ice water as necessary.
  5. Roll out dough and fit in pie pan. For a baked shell, either prick the bottom and sides with a fork, or use pie weights so the shell doesn't bubble up.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
