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."

    It didn't work for me. I didn't like the texture nor the taste. In fact, I decided to throw it and bake a crustless quiche instead.

    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.

<p>I love food.com!&nbsp; It is so fascinating to sample the many recipes that people from all over the world submit.&nbsp; It is a happy place to spend some time. Making Italian food(especially lasagna) and all sorts of salads are a few of the things I enjoy making. Salmon is one of my favorites and I have collected a lot of new recipes to try on food.com. It has been fun to make a collection of different catergories of foods to try. I have a gluten sensitivity and enjoy trying new recipes that are gluten-free. I don't really have a favorite cookbook, but I do love collecting recipes of all different kinds. Dabbling in the art of making raw foods is a new area I have been experimenting in. I am thankful to have found this site under the original name of RecipeZaar.&nbsp; It helps me to be a better chef when I am able to borrow other recipes from my fellow friends on the Zaar. It is also a lot of fun to meet people from all over the world who are such great cooks! It is my goal to be a healthy individual and I have found many new recipes that help me on here. I also desire to honor the Lord Jesus, sharing his love with others. We have 8 children. I now home school 2 children. Six of our children have already graduated from our home school. Three of our children have graduated from college. We all enjoy cooking and/ or eating. Keep the great ideas and recipes coming!</p>
