 Very Berry Pie Crust:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 Tsp Salt

1/2-1 Tsp White granulated Sugar

1/4 cup Spectrum Shortening

3/4 cup Earth Balance Soy free, dairy free, buttter substitute

1/2 cup ice water

Preheat your oven to 400Degrees. In your food processor add in the flour, salt, sugar, shortening and butter substitute. Pulse it a few times then begin adding in the ice cold water through the spout and pulse a couple more times. Remove the dough and knead in a disc on a lightly floured pastry mat. Add more flour to dough by tbsp if needed to get dough to right consistancy. Once patted into a disc wrap up in plastic wrap and place back in fridge for 10-15 minutes. Once chilled finish by rolling out into a 10” circle. Drape circle over your pie plate, trim sides if needed then fold the top and crimp your edges and prick the center and sides with a fork. Bake pie in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until done. Pull out and let completely cool before adding your filling.

I am a mother of two Allergic kids, one of whom is severely allergic to Dairy, Eggs, Peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish, moderate to Soy and coconut. I have had to learn how to cook a lot from scratch in order to have food in my home that is safe for my family to come in contact with and to eat. I personally don't want anyone to feel left out ever and I especially don't want my children to not be able to enjoy at least some of the same foods just because they are allergic to basic ingredients. So with some good motivation I have taught myself how to cook and bake and I have come up with some great recipes to share with the world. I want to make it easier on other people in similar positions. Hopefully I can help other people to be able to also enjoy foods that previously would have been thought to have been off limits.
