Hayley’s Apple Pie


The recipe for this crust is adapted from glutenfreeonashoestring.com Since many people have allergies to nuts, we thought that a gluten-free and nut-free pie crust would be a fantastic option to use for a holiday pie that you will be sharing with friends and family who may not follow a Paleo diet. Since we have family members who are allergic to nuts, and do not like coconut, this is a recipe that works well for our family gatherings.

What you will need

3 cups Gluten Free Flour (Better Batter), (crust)

1/2 teaspoon Salt, (crust)

1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder, (crust)

168 grams Unsalted Butter, cold, chopped (crust)
