Pie Crust (See more pie crust photos HERE)
- 2 ½ C gluten free flour (We use Pamela’s Baking or Artisan flour blends)
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 C unsalted butter, chilled cut into pieces
- ¼ C of Ice Water or iced orange juice
- 2 tsp sugar
In a food processor, using the metal blade, combine flour, salt and sugar. Add 1 C butter pieces and pulse mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Gradually add ¼ C iced water and pulse just until dough begins to hold together and forms into a ball. Divide dough in half. Place in a zip lock baggie and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and roll the dough out onto a floured serface. Shape dough into a circular pie crust shape. Carefully place the rolled pie crust into a pie plate. No need to grease the pie plate. Prick the crust with a fork all around the bottom of the crust. As it bakes it begins to bubble, the forked holes help it to release the bubbles.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Let pie crust cool before adding and layering the fruit. Then pour warm glaze over the fruit.
