I’m getting there!

I have found making gluten-free pie crusts very difficult. Gluten holds pie crusts together, if you didn’t know, and without gluten, they fall apart. It didn’t matter what recipe I used, they wouldn’t work for me. So I was buying GF pie crusts to make pie. With prices soaring, I just can’t justify spending that much on pie crust! But luckily, a friend mentioned pastry cloths on Facebook!

This is a pastry cloth, complete with a rolling pin cover. You rub flour into both, and then roll out your pie crust on the cloth. With a bit of practice, you can then flip the crust from the cloth into the pie plate.

Now, I’m not 100% satisfied with my pie crust recipe. It’s very, very delicate. I’d say it turned out the consistency of a melt-in-your-mouth butter cookie, which sounds very tasty, but it’s not quite the consistency I’m wanting. I’m going to tinker with it. So don’t ask for my recipe yet–it’s not ready! πŸ™‚

And there it is! An imperfect but entirely edible pie. But I do now have a way to make pie much more economically, which means I CAN tinker! πŸ™‚ I’ll figure out a good crust recipe yet!

These are things I do while working on my newest book. If you’d like to keep up with my newest releases and be entered to a monthly contest to win books and knitted surprises, sign up for my newsletter!

I wish you piles of books, and quality time to read them!

Happy reading!
