A few days ago, I shared a recipe I created using Pillsbury Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (see it here) that turned out absolutely delicious! I was so excited to try other Pillsbury Gluten Free Doughs, so I put together a new recipe using the Pillsbury Gluten Free Dough Pie And Pastry Dough. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!

My first thought when opening the Pillsbury Gluten Free Pie and Pastry Dough was to make a traditional cherry pie, so I gathered everything I needed to make it happen. I grabbed a pie dish, kneaded the Gluten Free Dough (as directed on the tub), flattened the dough with a rolling pin, then stopped. It just wasn’t exciting enough. I really wanted to do something different.

Soooooo….I thought back to my last Pillsbury Gluten Free Dough recipe I made, which was for Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cups and wondered if I could make something “mini” with this pastry dough as well. Aha! Mini cherry pies!

Since my dough was already flattened and my oven was preheated to 400 degrees, I simply took out a two inch round pastry cutter and cut several rounds out of the dough. I then sprayed a mini muffin pan (my mini muffin pan is getting a LOT of use lately!) and carefully placed each round into a cup, molding the dough into a cup shape. I then added some gluten free canned cherry filling to each and baked for around 10 minutes, when crust was golden brown. After cooling, I heated up 1/2 cup of powdered sugar with 2 teaspoons of water, making an icing, then drizzled that over the pies using a plastic baggie with a small hole cut out of the corner.

The result? YUMMY, SWEET PIES! I have never made mini pies before, so I was surprised they turned out so tasty. I’ll definitely be making these again!

    The Pillsbury Gluten Free Dough, that I am most excited to try is the Pie & Pastry dough. I am excited to try it because there are less gluten free alternatives for the pie crust then the other options. I really want some gluten free pie!

    I am excited to try the cookie dough because the ready made gluten free cookies I’ve tried tasted weird. Maybe I could just use some and freeze the rest. Confession: My adult kids bought chocolate chip cookies at the grocery and I have to look at them now until they eat them all. I want a cookie sooo bad. I have to go make myself some hot coco now, bye.

      I have a great recipe for GF peanut butter cookies…1c peanut butter, 1/2c each brown and white sugar, 1 egg, pinch salt, 1tsp vanilla. Bake 1in balls at 375 for 10-12 min. Cookies will look raw when you pull them from oven. I put a Hershey kiss in middle of each cookie once they are on cooling rack which I line with paper towels to keep cookies from becoming dry or stale tasting

    Recently advised to go both gluten and dairy free due to health issues. Not only is the new daily diet an extreme challenge but frustrating, especially with Thanksgiving around the corner. I will be trying to find the gluten-free pie crust….there may be a turkey pot pie or an apple turnover in my future!!

    Just made the gluten free pie crust for both a chocolate pudding pie and a pumpkin pie for a VERY large dinner… Need less to say, these both went faster than the regular crust pies. I pre cooked the pie crusts with the parchment paper and another pie tin in the pumpkin crust for about 10 minutes and it was just perfect! The Chocolate pudding pie I did the same thing to and after ten minutes, took off the parchment and extra pie plate and continued toasting until lightly brown… They were perfect for the gluten free gang. Thanks Pillsbury for making a really decent gluten free pie crust!!!

      So glad that the crust worked out for you!

    While Australia has officially escaaped a recession with the global financial crisis with thanks to its impressive
    mining industry, however the country as a whole faces massive challenges in the long term as mining resources will inevitably
    dry up. Of course, it would be nice if everything went well annd you did not have to walk out three times or spend
    hours hagfgling over the deal. In the tehnical world, you don’t have to worry about anything.

    Manyy agencies offer you car for sale in Cairns, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and othdr parts
    of Australia. If money is not a constraint, then itt would be better to buy a rather
    then a used one. Those engaging in this activityy must make their deals cautiously.
