AWESOME Gluten Free Pie Crust

1         cup  sweet rice flour
1/3     cup  tapioca flour
4        tablespoons  potato starch
1/3    teaspoon  xanthan gum
2        tablespoons  white sugar
1/2    teaspoon  salt
1/4    teaspoon  baking powder
1/3    cup  frozen butter — sliced very thin
3        tablespoons  ice cold water
1/2    teaspoon  vanilla extract

1)  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2)  Whisk the rice flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl of food processor. Turn off processor, add all of the sliced butter, run processor until mix resembles sand.  Turn off, add all of the sliced butter,run processor until dough form a ball.

2)  Butter a square of foil that will cover the crust and dip over the sides.  Add pie chains to weigh down. As pie chains are expensive, I got two lengths of light chain from the hardware store.

4)  Bake for 20 minutes with foil on, then remove and continue baking until golden brown.  If you are going to bake again, such as with a Lemon Meringue Pie, bake until very lighly browned.

5)  Cool and fill.

    gluten will cause damage to the small intestine, damaging the villi, which aid in food digestion. With the
    emphasis on the mistake and completely ignoring the bits
    he got right. While this is somewhat controversial and is not
    yet conclusive, more experts continue to look into the connections.
