• Gluten Free Homemade Apple Pie

    by Ellen on November 25, 2008 · 7 comments

    This is a picture of the apple pie I just baked for our Thanksgiving feast! I had all I could do not to break right into it, but it’s for Thursday, so I have to wait. If it tastes anything like it looks, I’ll be very pleased.

    I had included the pie in my Thanksgiving menu round-up here, prior to making it. Now that it’s finished and waiting to be served on Thursday, I wanted to post the picture. If you decide to follow the recipe, go here. While the crust per the recipe is probably delicious, I wanted to play around with some of the flours, so I made some changes in the ingredients. Where it calls for 1/2 cup brown rice flour, instead I took 2 tbsp sorghum flour, 2 tbsp teff flour, and 2 tbsp sweet rice flour and placed them in a 1/2 cup (measuring cup), then filled the rest of the 1/2 cup with brown rice flour. I used xanthan gum, not guar gum (recipe calls for either). I used Earth Balance instead of butter. I didn’t brush the top with egg white.

    What kind of pie are you serving for Thanksgiving?

    Do you use the same amount of xantham gum for guar gum?

    Where do you find teff flour? I’ve
    been working with Annalise Roberts’ book, and she calls for teff flour in a few recipes. But I can’t find it!!
