Being gluten free or dairy free doesn’t mean you have to live without pie. This amazing gluten free pie crust is so flaky, it almost shatters in your mouth. You’ll happily say goodbye to pies of the past and start dreaming of all of your future pies.

Three Tips To Make Extra Flaky Gluten-Free Pie Crust: 1. Keep your butter extra cold. When the dough starts to set as the butter melts in the oven, little pockets of steam form which make the flaky airy texture in pie crust.
2. The second factor is the size of your butter pieces in the dough. Many recipes call for pea sized butter, which is ideal for lattice work and designs, but for flakiness you want large pieces of butter.
I strive to make gluten free dishes that are not just good enough, but better than their gluten counterparts. Living without gluten doesn't need to mean living without yum.
