Hey guys, it’s Robin….and it’s great to be back!
Pie crust. Let’s talk pie crust.
If you are like me, a lovely flaky pie crust is hard to come by. Pie crust for me is just so high maintenance it seems like Russian Roulette if it comes out or not. It was my mother who made the perfect crust growing up…and had the “touch”. Then came in this whole gluten-free thing (more than half of our immediate family has Celiac Disease…and many of our extended family does as well) so making delicious and flaky pie crust had been benched for quite some time. Thirteen years ago (when many of us were diagnosed) gluten free pie crust was something awful and you just ate the filling….and that was it.
Since that time, my mother had to go gluten-free as well and came across a recipe that was something that held it’s own…plus it is really hard to ruin.
