Rice Flour Easy Pie Crust

This is a recipe I found online on a blog called Chaotic Cooking. Can substitute coconut oil for the butter but not sure how much. I guess you have to experiment to find out. I have not tried this recipe yet but I like to collect recipes that don't use wheat, so please give a report on this if you try it.

Had the consistency of cornbread or shortbread (but not sweet). Very crumbly. I used it as a quiche crust and I suppose it works, but I am not sure I would use this for an apple pie. I will try this again though. Recipe as-is only made enough for the base of the pan. I would recommend doubling it in order to have the crust go up the side of the dish.

I substituted the butter for solid coconut oil (same amount) and it worked well. The crust was nice and flaky!

I needed to add more water; <br/>When you're making any kind of dough, the amount of water and flour you add depend on the heat and humidity of the room you're making it in.<br/>Gluten or not.
