Welcome to the October Gluten Free Baking Challenge! Last month’s challenge has ended and the winner has been announced and contacted. You guys baked some amazing looking gluten free pumpkin breads and it made me so happy to hear how much you loved the recipe!

This month, we’re going back to the basics with a staple recipe in any baker’s kitchen. It’s one that you’ll find handy to have mastered when Thanksgiving comes around. It can be made for sweet or savory dishes and it can be filled with whatever your baking heart desires.

So, let’s get down to baking business!

The October Gluten Free Baking Challenge Recipe is….

Gluten Free Pie Crust!

My flaky gluten free pie crust really is a bakers work of art! It can be made dairy free with palm shortening or you could make it with all butter. My personal favorite way to make it is with grass-fed butter. OMG is it good!

Be sure to read my pie crust post for tips and tricks on getting the perfect gluten free pie crust.

My gluten free pie crust makes a fabulous double crust and is easy to roll out. It also transfers to the pie dish in one piece 🙌🏼

Since the October Gluten Free Baking Challenge is just the crust, you can make whatever kind of pie you want! A gluten free double crust pie, gluten free quiche, gluten free custard pies, savory pies, or even mini pies! You can even get creative with the pie decorations – I’d love to see some pie art!

    I love that you do a monthly challenge. What a fun way to inspire people to get gf baking! A pie crust is such a great staple to have in your kitchen repertoire and this is the perfect time of year to start testing it out! Nothing beats a good apple pie for Thanksgiving and a quiche for Christmas morning.
