I found this recipe on the Land O Lakes website.
Fall is a great time for pies. Now you can bake your favorite pie using this gluten-free pie crust recipe.
8 servings; 1 (12-inch) pie crust 5 Stars
Ingredients
1 1/4 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
1/4 cup cold shortening
1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg
3 tablespoons cold water
1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Combine flour blend, sugar, xanthan gum and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter and shortening with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Combine egg, cold water and apple cider vinegar in small bowl; beat with fork until mixed. Add egg mixture to flour blend mixture; stir just until moistened. Shape pastry into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate until chilled (at least 1 hour).

Remove from refrigerator; let stand 15 minutes at room temperature. Unwrap pastry; place onto parchment paper lightly floured with gluten-free flour blend. Lightly flour pastry with gluten-free flour blend; top with another sheet of parchment paper. Roll out pastry into 12-inch circle. Transfer pastry to ungreased 9-inch pie pan, pressing firmly against bottom and sides and sealing any cracks as necessary. Crimp or flute edge. Fill and bake according to pie recipe directions.

For baked unfilled pie shell, prick crust all over with fork. Bake at 475°F. for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Fill as desired.

Gluten-Free Flour Blend: To make flour blend, combine 2 cups rice flour, 2/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Use appropriate amount for recipe; store remainder in container with tight-fitting lid. Stir before using.
