This is the best GF pie crust ever! I make it every year around the holidays and everyone comments about how they like it better than the regular crusts. It was my life-saver when I was diagnosed with celiacs 🙏🏻
Amazing recipe. The texture is excellent and the flavor is delectable. Plus you can't even tell it is gluten free.
