I use amaranth or oat flour for pie crusts. It makes a looser crust, but is seasons up well and tastes really good.

You are right about the rice being grainy and you don't want that do try what the others said and let us know how it turned out

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I have not used buckwheat for crusts, but have made crepes out of them and hubby thot they were OK. Quinoa flour is gluten free and if you would mix it with a little of potato flour or tapioca flour, it would probably work. Not sure, though. When I mix my own gluten free flour, I usually add tapioca flour. My ratio that I have used is 4 to one. I did a recipe not too long ago that called for 1.25 cups of flour. I used a cup of one main flour --it probably was rice or quinoa-- and one quarter cup of tapioca flour. It held together and was one of the smoothest cakes I have ever eaten! The tapioca seemed to make it a soft and smoothe texture. Tapioca is not good on its own for baking. Oh, when I made the thin crepes, I stuffed some with ham and cheese for him and rolled them up like burritoes. He liked that really well!

Hope you find somethings that works for you. Sometimes we have to do a lot of experimenting to find the right combination. A site that I use to look up gluten free recipes is www.elanaspantry.com. She uses a lot of almond flour, which is quite expensive, but other flours also. Hope this info helps. emoticon

I made this recipe with spelt flour because it is very low gluten and DH can handle it. However, I think you should be able to use any gluten free flour--especially a mixed flour that would have some sort of starch added to hold the crust together. Let us know how it works.

Happy Thanksgiving! emoticon

I would use rice flour to help thicken it up. Read the ingredients for the milk. If there isn't any wheat hiding around there you should be good.

I found a recipe titled "Self Crust Pumpkin Pie" that I would really like to make on Thursday for Thanksgiving. However it calls for 3 tbsp of white flour. What can I substitute to make this gluten free?

All help appreciated! This received great reviews so I am excited to make, I just need to get rid of the flour! Also calls for dry milk.. is that considered GF?
