EGG and Dairy: This product can be made egg free by eliminating the egg white and replaceing with 1 Tbsp. flax seed added to 1/4 cup water and simmered on stove until it becomes thick. Or add 1-2 Tbsp. honey to act as the binder.

I ordered several packages of the pie crust and I was very excited to get it to try it out. I have been very hungry for a good quiche. The crust turned out very well and everyone loved it. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that as I was making it I noticed that the expiration date on all the packages of pie crust mix I received was less then a month from now. Every other mix I ordered had an expiration date of 2016 or 2017.

I have used several different pie crust mixes and recipes. This one is, by far, the best. The crust comes out flaky and tasty. It does not look or taste like it is gluten free.

Oh my, I love this crust. It was so easy to use and besides the fact that I had a couple thin spots that burnt it was awesome . I made a Strawberry pie with it. I am not a pastry cook. I don't usually make pies and stuff with dough so the fact that this turned out so great is nothing less the. A miracle.

I am kind of a pie snob... and I thought I'd be deprived when I was told by my doctor to go gluten free. Discovering this pie crust mix was a genuine treat! It's fantastic!

This pie crust mix is very easy to use, and makes a beautiful, flaky, tasty crust every time. If you are used to making regular pie crust, rolling out the dough between sheets of waxed paper may be a little different, but it is a necessary step because the dough is a little more crumbly. I made it dairy free using softened Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks, and used 2 tablespoons of honey in place of the egg white to make it egg free. Everyone who tried it gave rave reviews! The crust is just as good with savory meat pies as it is with fruit pies. This is my new "Go To" pie crust from now on. Very highly recommended!

I am one who always makes my own crusts.......store bought has never compaired to home made. After cutting way back on wheat, I wanted a pie crust tt I would love and so would everyone else. I have used Mamas for a couple years now.....no one can tell the difference. The one difference that I can tell is that it is so much better. The flavor beats any home made I have had! The dough has a great flavor raw too. I will never use another gluten free pie mix. I am hooked. And, I will never make home made crusts the way I use to ever again. Why should I? Everyone loves this crust and they don't even know it is gluten free. Note: for those who haven't worked with gluten free pie dough before, just have patience and don't get in a hurry and it will become a breeze to make. I have found that it is better to have closer to the 8 tbls of water than under. Much easier to work with. Once you taste the flavor, you will want to mak it over and over.....so you will become a pro.....it is well worth learning how to handle this dough. The cool thing is that if it tears on you, it pieces together sooooooo easy....not anything like wheat crust that you have to rewet and hope it pieces together. I am so happy to be able to write this review. It is the first I have ever written. I feel so blessed to have found this product. I wish all cooks would try it whether they did or did not eat wheat. They would never go back to wheat or any other pie crust mix. God bless and continue the great work!

Was very pleased with this mix. My husband found it hard to believe was gluten-free. He's getting use to gluten-free as I have allergys and need to avoid corn also.
