    My son also has celiac disease and I try to make something for him for family gatherings. When I do pie crusts I roll them out between 2 sheets of Saran type wrap with some of the gluten-free flour dusted on the bottom sheet and then on the top of the dough. After taking the top sheet off, I pick up the crust still on the bottom sheet and flip it into the pie pan. Sometimes I have to finger press it in places to make it fit the pan. He really doesn't care about the looks, as long as it tastes good! Hope this helps. I also have a recipe for GF pecan tassies (tarts) and I have used the crust mix for this as a pie crust. Let me know if you'd like the recipe.

    I agree.LOL One with the same problem, I can barely cook regular food great and having to find myself cooking gluten free is a nightmare, and I don't think that they ever turn out pretty, but as long as it tastes good, that's the real deal, because I have had to throw away some stuff because it wasn't edible. LOL

    King Arthur Flour makes a gluten free "flour" that's supposed to be pretty good. They also have all kinds of mixes for cakes, cookies and brownies...

    I have to admit I'd probably eat either one... I just LOVE pie!

    I would love the recipe!


    I think us gluten free people need a support thread. It sounds like there is quite a few here either gluten free or family of lol

    I was going through my MIL's recipes yesterday and in her recipe box was an article about people starting to get this problem. 1958 and since so many people today are having problems, seems to be the manufacturers are adding a lot of something to cause this. I have been very unhappy with my baking of gluten free things but when eating wheat I feel like my insides are blowing up. - Joan

    I feel your pain. I have been doing gluten free for my daughter for 2 years now. She loves chicken and dumpling I have saw her eat 9 or 10 of my dumpling(well did love) when I use a rice flour blend I found out we could have won any war if only we load a batch of those babies on our planes and dropped them on our enemies ,we could sink their land!!!! My daughter will not hurt anyone so when I ask her were they good and why she only ate 1/2 of one, she smiled, kissed me and said she was full. I tried one and it was so heavy there was no room for any thing else sort of like eating dry cement and drink a glass of water!Sets heavy. So I think your pies look fine, the real test is in the taste.
