GF peach pecan pie


Had another hankerin' ...PIE...so I made a pie with rice flour and it is delish!

gfiowa.us that is where this recipe came from...I adapted the instructions to suit me.

1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white rice flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
4 TBs. cold water
1 egg

I cut in the shortening and then mixed it all well...I patted a large portion of the dough into a glass pie plate. I cut up peaches, added a cup of sugar and a bit of rice flour, dumped it into the pie crust, and then dotted it with butter (I don't use butter anymore but I did make this exception). I took the remaining dough and broke off little pieces like I was making a crumb top. I then coarsely broke pecans and filled in the gaps. I sprinkled more sugar over the top and baked in a preheated oven for 45 minutes. It was browned and bubbly so I took it out and cooled it on a wire rack. I put a scoop of Rice Dream on a still warm portion of it and it was yummy. I am not used to that much sugar or any sugar so it is very sweet, but it satisfied the hankerin'...

I love peaches, and you make it sound so easy!

But the pie looks good and has me going on a pie craving now. I hope it's that easy, because I think I'm going to have to try this recipe soon...

Thanks!!
