|Raspberry Coyote Pie with Beech Leaf Accents!|
I dragged him out to pick raspberries last week and we ended up with about a quart - exactly enough for a pie. Since he'd put in almost half the work of picking, I though it was just plain cruel to make a pie he couldn't eat (he has celiac disease) so I diplomatically used a gluten free pie mix for the crust, though I suspected the resulting dough would be difficult to work with. In fact, it turned out so crumbly and uncooperative that there was no way to make a traditional pie top or lattice. The dough wouldn't hold together and after rolling out the top I had what looked like a bunch of dough-rubble, so I decided to turn all the little pieces into fun shapes using cookie cutters. The results were not perfect, but the pie tasted wonderful!
Here's the gluten-full recipe. If any of you have found a recipe for a gluten free crust with good consistency and cohesion, please post it!
