Strawberry and rhubarb together in a flaky pie crust is probably the most effective way to ring in the spring and summer months via flavor alone. Strawberry and rhubarb's sweet and tart flavors are married with a hint of orange zest in this vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Pie recipe. Both of these fruits let go of lots of water during baking which can make things on the soupy side. A generous amount of arrowroot flour and a longer baking time at a slightly lower temperature than usual solves this issue and gives the pie a chance to bake to it's juicy perfection. It's like a summer vacation in your mouth. Be sure to select firm rhubarb with as much red as possible for the best flavor.

Gone Pie Vegan Bakery was kind enough to submit this Gluten-Free Pie Crust.
This year we went with a new pie crust for our gluten-free holiday pies. It is adapted from the wheat-free crust we have been making for years. I think it actually held together better and was an all around better crust than its inspiration. It is not a crust without issues. Using both tree nuts and gluten-free oats
, it is not for everyone!
Here is the recipe. It makes enough crust for one 10 inch tart crust or three 7 inch crusts.

Making your own pie crust is time consuming but a homemade crust tastes about 23 times better than a store-bought one. You can make multiple batches and freeze the rest for later use. Home made pie crust has that irresistible flakiness and gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you made the whole pie. This vegan Flaky Pie Crust recipe can be used for any pastry such as pop tarts
, turnovers, English pasties or anything else you'd like to envelop in tender, flaky goodness.
In a pie crust the goal is tenderness and flakiness. This is achieved by a high level of fat and a low level of water. The fats serve two purposes: The Vegan Butter in this recipe breaks into small pieces, coating the flour and inhibiting gluten from forming. The shortening is cut into larger pieces so it doesn't break down as much when it's cut into the flour. This is so the shortening forms thin layers as the dough is rolled. These thin layers catch evaporating water as the crust bakes which causes the crust to form thin, flaky layers similar to what's found in puff pastry.
