When I was unable to find the usual gluten-free pie crust that I use for my pumpkin pies, I opted to purchase the frozen pie crusts from Gillian’s Foods. Trying something new when I am having company is not my favorite thing to do, but sometimes you just have to make it work. I have had other Gillian’s products, so I had faith in the brand, which helped me make the decision to purchase the crusts.
The crusts come 2 to a package for $5.99 at Earth Fare. They were a bit smaller than the pie crusts that I normally use, but I solved that by making 3 pies – the extra being a Crustless Pumpkin Pie. I simply prepared the pie according to my recipe and then poured the filling into the pie shells.
The pies came out darn near perfect and the four of us have managed to almost finish a whole pie in a few hours! One of those people happens to be a 16 year old boy who had roughly 3-4 pieces. The pie crust was just as good, if not better, than any pie crust I have had. I can only think of one pie crust that was better, and it was homemade by my Grandmother and not gluten-free.
If this isn’t Thanksgiving-worthy, I don’t know what is!
Gillian’s Foods products can be found in many stores across the US and online. Have you tried Gillian’s pie crust? What did you think? Care to share your pie recipe?
