Gluten-free holiday baking? Bob’s Red Mill has you covered! #giveaway ends 12/6

Disclosure: The blog owner (that’s me!) received a product or promotional item from Bob’s Red Mill to facilitate this review. I was under no obligation to post a positive review. The opinions contained herein, are my own and reflect my experience with the product(s). Your own may differ. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

I fancy myself a pretty darn good cook. Really, there’s nothing much I won’t tackle when I’m in the mood. I’ve even tackled real, homemade from scratch croissants a time or two. Homemade pasta? Got you covered. From aspic to zucchini, I feel pretty confident in saying that I can do it all. Everything, that is, except, pie crust.

Pie crust is my secret shame. As much as it pains me to admit it, I often resort to pre-rolled or frozen pie crust because the mere thought of making one freaks me out so badly!

Each year when everyone raves over my pies, it’s all I can do to keep from confessing like I’m in an old episode of Perry Mason. “I can’t take it anymore! I did it! Do you hear me? I used fake pie crust! Now for pity’s sake, leave me alone! Stop tormenting me!”

This year, however, is going to be a little different.

Recently, I was invited to review Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix by our wonderful friends at Bob’s Red Mill. At first, I looked at the packages with a somewhat jaundiced eye because I’ve tried some gluten free products that were just not all that. Then I decided to give it a try…after all, if Bob’s Red Mill can’t do it right, no one can!

Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix takes the guesswork out of gluten-free dessert! With this exceptional mix, it’s “easy as pie” to make a delicious, flaky crust that works wonderfully with any recipe. Each package makes two 9-inch, single-crust pies or one double-crust pie. Perfect for fruit, cream, or potpies, as well as quiches and galettes, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix won’t disappoint. Plus, it’s allergy-friendly, so you can trust it for your family.

I must say, this pie crust was as easy as can be. I simply mixed it, chilled it and rolled it out. Easy Peasy. The end result was a beautiful crust, tender and delicious that made the perfect home for the pot pie I was baking that night! I have no idea how they got the perfect textured crust without any gluten, but they did. I got rave reviews for supper that night!

There are a ton of delicious recipes on the Bob’s Red Mill website, too.  I can’t wait to try a few of them for my own family, soon.  How does a Fine Herbes Quiche, sound? Southern Tomato Pie? Or simply use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix in your own treasured family recipes. The possibilities are endless!

Please visit Bob’s Red Mill to learn more or purchase your own. You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, too!

The wonderful folks at Bob’s Red Mill would love to help you with your holiday baking, too, and are offering three of my readers a chance to win TWO packages, each, of delicious Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix! Thank you so much!

    I’m thrilled to see that they carry adzuki beans. I do a lot of Japanese cooking and typically pick up my Japanese groceries, including the adzuki beans, when I go to a Japanese market a little over an hour drive from me. I don’t always have the time to drive up there – especially when i only need one or two items. I love that I can order these (and so many other great products) from Red Mill.
