The Perfect Gluten-free Vegan Pie Crust Recipe
yields 1 pie crust
- 1-1/2 cups gluten free all purpose baking flour
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup vegan butter (one stick) - cold
- 4 - 6 Tbsp plant-based milk - cold
- Preheat an oven to 400°F.
- Combine gluten-free flour and sea salt in a food processor. Do a quick pulse to combine.
- Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Add the cold milk, one tablespoon at a time, while blending until all ingredients are well combined.
- Using parchment paper place dough onto one sheet, flatten with your palms, then place another sheet on top. Roll out to the desired size using a rolling pin. Remove the top sheet and carefully invert into pie pan.
- To bake the pie crust alone, bake at 400°F for 15 - 20 minutes. If using a pie filling, bake according to pie recipe instructions.
notes: I liked having some crust dough left over to use on top. You can cut strips or make shapes like I did in the photos above. This recipe is adapted from Bob's Red Mills web site and I used their flour but my own vegan ingredients.
