This morning, we sat down to plan our Thanksgiving menu. It’s coming up, of course. (And if you are feeling unprepared for a gluten-free or grain-free Thanksgiving, then we can help. Check out our Thanksgiving baking iPad app and digital download.) Have you gone to the farmers’ market for fresh pumpkins or pushed a cart loaded with food through the grocery store yet?
If this is your first gluten-free Thanksgiving, or you are cooking and baking for someone who has to be gluten-free, you might be worried about the pie. Well, fear no more.
Bob’s Red Mill, who has been a sponsor of this site for many years now, has come out with a gluten-free pie crust mix in time for the holidays. That pie dough you see in the photo above was made with the mix. It’s light, easy to use, and makes a delicious pie. We made a peach pie for the Daisies Girl Scout bake sale. Lulu and her friend Zuzu helped man the booth, excited. That pie was easy to roll out, flaky and warm, and gone in an hour.
This is one darned fine pie crust.
It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, corn-free, soy-free, and easy to make.
We like our homemade pie around here. But pie intimidates a lot of people, I know. If you want to learn how to make pie, and you don’t have a lot of time during this holiday season, we highly recommend the Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free pie crust mix.
p.s. It makes a great all-purpose flour mix too.
Bob’s Red Mill is giving away three gluten-free pie crust mixes to readers here. Just leave a comment about pie how much you like it, or why you have a hard time making it, or your favorite kind to enter the giveaway. Winners will be chosen at random next Saturday, November 30th.
