Love this flour blend! Easy to make and works well. Most of my family love what I bake or cook using it and they are not GF!

Hi Sharon, our gluten-free flour blend should work well in making a roux. We haven't tested it yet, but if you try, please let us know how it turns out for you!

Can this blend be used to make a semi-dark roux for gumbo?

This is my go to flour blend. I have used more complicated ones, ones from famous test kitchens etc and I always come back to this one. My baked goods rarely flop when I use this blend and only having to keep three flours on hand is a plus!

Hi Robert, our Gluten-Free Pie Crust is a great option to use in recipes such as our Blue Ribbon Apple Pie. Just search for "Gluten Free Pie Crust" in our search bar and the recipe will show up in the search results. Happy baking!

We are new to the GF world. We love the Land O Lakes apple pie recipes but we need a GF crust. Can this flour be used to make a pie dough like the Blue Ribbon Apple Pie recipe?

This was perfect for some carrot muffins I made. I used brown rice flour, and added some almond flour, maybe 3/4 cup, just so I could get rid of it.

Hi Carolyn, we have done testing on this recipe to make sure we account for variability in weights of flours, so it should work for you!

Do you have a version of this flour blend that uses weights instead of cup measures? It seems a cup isn't always a cup. Or is this recipe flexible enough so as not too be that precise? Thanks!

I've used this recipe to make two very different baked goods (Christmas sugar cookies & gingerbread loaf cake). Both were perfect & will be made again & again. I did use more flour in the Christmas cookie cut outs than had been called for, but it was easy to tell when the texture was correct (not sticky). I followed the recipe to the letter with the gingerbread loaf and it was perfect. I personally prefer using 1 c white rice flour & 1 c brown white flour for the rice flour ingredient, and the other ingredients as directed. So very happy with this blend! Thank you!

Yes, you can. Just keep in mind as you use this blend for baking that you have eliminated the xanthan gum.

Will it be okay to omit the xanthan gum ?

Awful. I want a gluten free flour blend that actually mimics real wheat flour. This made gummy, mushy, awful, gluten free coffee cake and gluten free donuts. I am throwing what is left away, just as I threw the baked goods away. Very disappointed.

Yes, you can try another GF flour blend for baking. About the baking powder... yes you should use a GF product here.

Hi Lisa, We haven't tried testing our flour blend in pizza dough, but you could try. Let us know how it works out for you!

Could I use this gf blend to make pizza crust? I found a recipe and it calls for an all purpose gluten free flour mix? Will this work? BYW - I used this mix with the land o lakes gf chocolate cookie recipe - Wow! So, so good! Very soft and chewy. My whole family loves them!

Yes, you should use this GF flour blend for making a roux for a mac and cheese recipe if you need to make a GF mac & cheese.

This flour blend is wonderful. I made the GF chocolate chip cookies tonight and they were absolutely fantastic. Even my 17 year old son who insist on having his gluten version of everything loved them. He told me I no longer gave to make the regular Tollhouse version for him. I will not try another GF flour.
