gluten free apple pie

It’s officially Fall – we made our first apple pie today after going apple picking yesterday.  We have a bushel full of different varieties of apples, and this morning I made the crust.  Gluten free crust needs to sit in the fridge for a little while before you can roll it out, so it’s sort of a whole day process, but the kids had no school today (teacher work day – how come we never had those when I was a teacher?) and it was sort of gray out – so a perfect day for pie.  I have used lots of different pie crust recipes over the years, but one I have been using lately is from the Gluten Free Girl website.  It is the most malleable of all the doughs I’ve tried – the easiest to roll out, and it holds it’s shape the best.  She tells you to roll out the dough between parchment paper, but use saran wrap – it works so much better.  I double the recipe and it makes 3, 9″ crusts, or 4, 8″ crusts.  Wrap 1/2 of the dough up tight in plastic and freeze it to make your next pie even easier!

Kind of pretty, don't you think?!  Ryland was the lucky one who got to cut in the steam vents in any pattern she wanted.

Here's the menu that Ryland made for our dinner while we were waiting for the pie and the sweet potatoes to cook.  Look at the description for the pie, Anne's gluten free crust, apples, and shugar!  pretty sweet...

good thing I have two more crusts in the fridge, because I bet we’ll need another one tomorrow – even the boy eats this pie – and he doesn’t like anything!
