This recipe is from Thanksgiving. I made a delicious turkey pot pie, but I never posted the recipe because I hadn't written down the directions for the filling. The next time I made it, it was with a vegetarian chickpea filling. Again, I just went off the cuff without writing anything down. Eventually, it just seemed silly to be posting a turkey pot pie recipe when Thanksgiving was so far gone. But I've made this crust multiple times with different fillings, thinking every time, "I've got to come up with the perfect filling so I can post that recipe!" When my friend recently mentioned in an e-mail that she was daydreaming about the taste of the pot pie crust I had made, I knew it was time to let go of the idea of coming up with the perfect filling and just post the crust recipe. This is really the star of the show, to be quite honest. You can make whatever type of pot pie filling you want, and then top it with this, and you're sure to have a hit!
Gluten-Free Pot Pie Crust
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/4 cup sweet white rice flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter (sub: Spectrum Organic Palm Shortening)
1/4 cup water
10 drops liquid stevia (sub: 1 Tbsp. honey)
1 Tbsp. Flax seeds plus 3 Tbsp. water
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk the dry ingredients.
- In another mixing bowl, add the flax seeds and water. Let sit for a minute. Beat in the stevia, water, and butter. Beat the flour into the wet until a dough forms.
- Lightly flour a large surface and roll the dough out into a square the size of your 9 x 12 in. pan*. Layer on top of your pie filling and bake for 25-30 minutes.
