In the Kitchen: Secret gluten-free pie crust
If you have a dietary allergy, intolerance or sensitivity, you know how much of a bummer it can be to go to party or be invited to a dinner and feel like the odd man out.
It’s no fun having to pass on delicious dishes, especially desserts. No one wants to turn down apple pie, after all.
Plus, it can be difficult sometimes to help your host, especially if it happens to be your grandmother or great aunt whose baking skills are renowned, understand the validity behind your reason for not being able to partake of her handy work.
Fortunately more people are beginning to realize the importance of offering foods that are safe for all or most to eat. So today I want to share a recipe for a gluten-free pie crust.
Gluten is found in wheat foods (bread, flour) and has been called the weird protein that nobody digests, is linked to various illnesses from stomach discomfort to autoimmune diseases and can affect some people mildly and others quite seriously.
Whether you have a problem eating gluten yourself or just want to be the “hostest with the mostest”— this gluten-free pie crust will be a perfect fit for just about everyone.
If you can’t eat gluten-containing foods, bring it to the next gathering you’re invited to (no one will be able to taste the difference!) or if you want to go out of your way to make your gluten-intolerant guests feel at-home, serve it up on your holiday table with a little note to let your guests know it’s safe.
