Gluten Free Pie Crust

Gluten free seems to be the ‘in’ thing around the country. Whether or not you believe in the health aspects claimed by the gluten-free eaters, here is a good recipe for pie crust.

1/2 c butter
1-1/2 c brown rice flour
1 Tbsp water
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Mix the flour, salt and baking powder together. Cut in the cold butter and mix until fine crumbs. Beat the egg and add it, along with the water to the flour mixture. Mix well. Form a ball and roll out between waxed paper or plastic wrap. Fit into a 9 inch pie pan. For a baked pie shell, prick bottom and sides of crust and bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. If using filling, bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes on low shelf, then reduce heat to 350 degrees until done.
