Pie Crust Maker

OMG!!! A gluten free baker’s BFF! The Pie Crust Maker!

Back in September, when my GIG support group was making GF pies for the NM state fair, a member brought in this gadget and I just about fell over! This is a gluten free baker’s absolute MUST-HAVE! Since GF “doughs” (batter is more fitting in many instances) can be particularly sticky and difficult to roll out, many of us have given up and have resorted to paying A LOT of money for the pre-made GF frozen pie crusts.

Since purchasing this pie crust maker, I have been practicing at making my own pie crust. While my crusts would still not win the “best-looking” category in a pie contest, they have improved a great deal!  Besides, it is the taste that matters right?

Before this nifty little contraption, the hassle of making my own GF pie crust was not worth it, but now that the hassle is gone…I have the energy to practice on the beauty! 🙂

  2. I was the one that brought this Pie Crust Maker to the Pie baking class. I am glad you got one. I LOVE MINE.
    I really enjoy your web site and all its recipes and information. Keep up the good work.

    • Hi Nancy!!
      I remember, you are the GF pie guru! 🙂 Your husband is Bob right? I went that very day to Now We’re Cooking and bought the Pie Crust Maker. I use it for all my dough based recipes including my Goldfish Crackers. I even used it last night to roll out gingerbread dough to cut my forms for my first ever completely homemade gingerbread house! I will post on this project sometime this week 🙂 Thank you SOOOOO much for bringing the Pie Crust Maker into my life, it was a godsend!

      • Hi Heidi,
        I am glad you liked it. I know when I bought my first one Bob had just been diagnosed and was experimenting with baking. He is such a pie face. We were on a trip in Fredricksberg, Tx and of course I always hit the kitchen shops. I was so happy that Now Your Cooking has them. Now that our son has been diagnosed I bought them one and a couple extra for me. I don’t want to make another pie without one.
        I LOVE your Blog Site and all the yummy recipes and information you put on there. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK…………..Nancy
