Well, hello there Dough Boy. Have you heard? Pillsbury® is getting into the gluten-free game and they’ve just released upon the world not one, not two, but THREE gluten-free classic dough situations. You’ve got your gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough, your gluten-free pizza dough, and your gluten-free pie crust. I was lucky enough to receive all three in the post and got to experimenting.* Thank you, Pillsbury®!
While this is great news, I hope the good people at Pillsbury® don’t think I’m going to stop writing letters about developing gluten-free crescent rolls. Because come on, Christmas. In the meantime, there’s a whole lot of goodness that can created out of these ready-made doughs. I’m thinking ice cream sandwiches with those cookies, pizza night at home (hey, no cross-contamination!), and any kind of pie you can imagine. Me? I imagined a gluten-free chocolate chip pie. Yes, I did.
I’ve been one of those devotees to Whole Foods gluten-free crusts, virtually giving up on ever having a roll out type crust wherein I squish the ends around the pie plate. And that’s just sad. While I did not make this gluten-free crust on my lonesome (duh, Pillsbury® did), I was able to shape it, pat it, and feel just a little bit more like Grandma. If only I’d taken the fork to the edges to make it all purty! How did I forget that??? Anyway, it felt good. And kind of normal. And tasted amazing. Easy, breezy, gluten-free pie.
Before you think I’m totally hard core, please note that this chocolate chip pie is not in fact, made with gluten-free Pillsbury® pie crust AND gluten-free Pillsbury® chocolate chip cookie dough. Just the pie dough, folks. This time.
So here’s how you make this deliciousness happen. How do you think you could go crazy with Pillsbury® gluten-free doughs? Do tell.
