How To Make A Gluten Free Blueberry Pie

Your rating: None
If you like blueberry pie but you are gluten intolerant; you can make a gluten free blueberry pie yourself. You can use the gluten and dairy free pastry crust recipe that I wrote for the pie crust. If you have some frozen blueberries, you can use them for this recipe as well. This is a great pie to have over the Christmas and winter months.
What you'll need: 
Gluten free pastry crust
700 grams blueberries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
50 grams tapioca flour
100 grams sugar
Rice milk
Rolling pin
Pie dish
Pastry brush
Place blueberries, tapioca, lemon juice and sugar into the bowl. Mix all the ingredients together in the bowl and put aside.
Take the gluten free pastry crust and divide into two. Roll out both of the pastry crust with rolling pin to the diameter of your pie pan. Lift one of the rolled pastry crust and lay it into the pie pan.
Pour the filling in the bowl into the pie base. Lay the other pastry crust over the pie filling.
Trim off any excess pastry crust around the edges and seal the edges together. Make a slits in your pie for vent. If you want a shiny pie top, you can use the pastry brush to brush the pie top with rice milk.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 50 minutes or until golden brown.
This is a simple and easy pie to make at anytime of the year. You can vary the blackberry filling according to your taste buds. You can also lattice the pie instead if you want.
You can add apples with the blueberries filling.
You can use agave syrup to sweeten instead if you want.
You can buy tapioca flour from health food stores.
You can use a star shaped pastry cutter to create star shapes to cover your pie top.
