Well I finally tried gluten free flour. I wanted to see what all the craze was about and to see if I’d even like a gluten free pie. To tell you the truth I first tried making these gluten free cinnamon rolls and I was not crazy about them at all. The dough turned out very crumbly and didn’t hold its shape. This is why I wanted to try making a pie with gluten free flour. It worked out much better.
Since pie crust is supposed to be flaky and crumbly this gluten free flour was perfect for this crust. The pie crust turned out stunning and honestly I could not tell the difference.
- 1½ cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
- 1 large egg yolk
- ¼ cup buttermilk
- 1 can of cherry pie filling
- 1 egg for egg wash
