Gluten Free Crust (not grain free)

GF Pie Crust

There are lots of great tutorials online about making pie crusts, so if you need help, find a good one on YouTube.  This is just the ingredients and basic instructions.

1 & 1/4 cups Namaste GF Organic Perfect Flour Blend (or your fave GF flour)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/3 cup butter
1/4 ice water

Combine flour and sea salt in a medium bowl.

"Cut-in" butter with forks or whisk.  Keep cutting until butter is pea-sized.

Add water 1-2 tablespoons at at time. Use your fingers to get the flour wet (gently).  You're not mixing!  Mix gently until it's all evenly mixed.  You want to make the dough barely wet enough to form into a ball.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface, until about 1/8 inch thick.  Gently lift your crust onto your pie plate and follow pie directions (if you need to precook the pie crust, go for it).

Fill with yummy pie filling and enjoy!!
