Gluten-Free Pie Crust

We're proud of the flaky texture of this crust, which can be difficult to achieve with gluten-free ingredients. Thorough baking and a golden brown color will give this crust a wonderful toasty flavor. This is enough for a single 9" crust, but can easily be doubled to make a two-crust pie.

Prep time


Cook time

35 to 40minutes


pie crust


  • 1 1/4 cup King Arthur Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Instant ClearJel, optional*
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 6 tbsp butter, cold
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp lemon juice or vinegar


  1. Lightly grease a 9" pie pan.
  2. Whisk together the flour or flour blend, sugar, Instant ClearJel, xanthan gum, and salt.
  3. Cut the cold butter into pats, then work the pats into the flour mixture until it's crumbly, with some larger, pea-sized chunks of butter remaining.
  4. Whisk the egg and vinegar or lemon juice together until very foamy. Mix into the dry ingredients. Stir until the mixture holds together, adding 1 to 3 additional tablespoons cold water if necessary.
  5. Shape into a ball and chill for an hour, or up to overnight.
  6. Allow the dough to rest at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes before rolling.
  7. Roll out on a piece of plastic wrap, on a silicone rolling mat, or in a pie bag that's been heavily sprinkled with gluten-free flour or flour blend. Invert the crust into the prepared pie pan.
  8. Fill and bake as your pie recipe directs.
