    You are doing much better than me at making a gluten free pastry dough. The last time I tried it, it would not roll out and I ended up lining pans by pressing in the dough. My son wanted to make piroshgi (meat pies), I think it is spelled... anyway, it tasted good... but we could not get a top crust.

    I have also tried gluten free noodles and they came out kind of tough. The last pie I made I went to the gluten free market that we have in Everett and bought premade, frozen crusts. They were really good!

    Have you ever looked at any of the Jules gluten free cookbooks? (I got them out of the library to try them and then I bought the one we liked best.) She uses her own flour blend but she tells you how to make it. She has a pretty good pie crust recipe. Here is the pie crust:

    Here is the flour blend:

    It isn't perfect for everything, but it is pretty good.

    You may also want to try some butter or shortening in your crust. Or maybe a little oil or plain yogurt. Any of these will help make it more elastic.

    Gluten free cooking is a whole new world and the rules are very different. Stick with it, your husband is sure to feel better soon!

    I agree! I have celiac disease and I know how this goes. My crust looks just like it. But it tastes good.

    They will LOVE your effort because it won't make them sick! There are some things that really need gluten and bread is one too. I make a really good peanut butter cookie with just substituting corn flour for the wheat flour. Gluten comes in a lot of things you would never guess. I didn't know toothpaste contained gluten.
