Gluten-Free Crumb Crust Recipe

I use this recipe to replace the graham cracker crusts because my father can't have the hydrogenated fats and sugars found in graham crackers. —Christa Hageman of Telford, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons thawed apple juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. Fill as desired. If baking the filling, shield edges of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Yield: 1 crust.
