A few weeks ago, I got an invite on facebook to participate in Gluten-Free Girl’s virtual pie party. By a lovely coincidence, the pie party on July 5 was to occur the day before Pie Day at my office. Though I baked the pie on Tuesday night, I did not manage to assemble this post until, well, today.
I’m still pretty certain that a late pie is better than no pie at all.
This is the first gluten-free pie crust I’ve made that I really like; I used my standard pie crust recipe, and subbed in a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend and two teaspoons of xanthan gum. It got a little bit hard around the edges, and that’s the one thing I’d like to correct for next time. Otherwise, it was pretty much perfect.
The filling is one of my favorites: peach-blueberry. I added a few gooseberries for a twist, too. It tasted like summer.
