Gluten, Dairy and Egg free Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I made this pie for Mr. Bean because he loves pie so much.I was meaning to make it with a pie mix, but I only had enough for one crust and the mix at the grocery store at whey powder in it. Both recipes are from the Joy of Cooking

Basic Pie Dough

3/4 c. Brown Rice Flour
1/4 c. White Sorghum Flour
1/2 c. Cornstarch
1/2 c. Potato Starch
1/2 c. Tapioca Starch
1 tsp. xathan gum
1 1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. + 3 tbsp Crisco shortening
Egg replacement for 1 egg (or if you want, use 1 large egg.)
5+ tbsp. of ice water

  1. Sift together flours and salt.
  2. Cut half of shortening into flour mixture with a pastry blender until it has the tendency of cornmeal. Cut in remaining shortening until it is pea sized. (Do NOT over cut. It makes the dough sticky and nasty.)
  3. Sprinkle dough with egg replacement and water, blending water gently with a fork until it justs holds together.
  4. Divide dough in half, shape each into a disk and roll out between two pieces of wax paper. Wax paper will save you a LOT of angst. If the dough is sticking, dust with potato flour.

Note: The crust was more crumbly than I wanted it to be. Next time, I think I will try 2 egg equivalents and more xathan gum. If you make this, let me know how it works out!

Strawberry Rhubarb Filling

1 lb. package of frozen rhubarb, thawed
1 pint strawberries, washed and halved lengthwise
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. cornstarch (more if the rhubarb is still slightly frozen.)
1/4 tsp. salt

1. Mix together above ingredients. Let stand for 15 minutes.
2. Pour mixture into bottom crust.
3. Cover with a vented top crust or a lattice.
4. Bake for 30 minutes in 425F oven, then lower the heat for 30F and bake for 25-30 minutes more until juices are thick and bubbly.
5. Cool completely on a rack.
