Thanksgiving Prep: Gluten Free Pie Crust

by | Nov 19, 2015 | Sweets, Thanksgiving Inspiration

Prep is the key to a smooth Thanksgiving.  Save yourself some time and stress by making two batches of this gluten free pie crust this weekend.  The recipe will make two crusts and can be made gluten free with Cup4Cup or with traditional flour.  I just ordered some of this great all-purpose gluten free flour on Amazon Prime and it came the next day!

This recipe is so easy and made for a food processor.  It’s amazing the amount of use mine gets.  It’s on sale with free shipping at Williams-Sonoma today through using code ELECTRICS and would make a great gift.
