Strawberry Gluten-Free Pie

This pie was a bit of an experiment. I used a pie recipe from Ginger Lemon Girl's blog, replacing the gelatin in the pie filling with xanthan gum, and a gluten free crust recipe from Betty Crocker.

The pie crust was a total failure. It wouldn't congeal together. The cold butter was a problem. Then trying to smooth out a layer of cream cheese on the bottom of the cooked crust completely disintegrated it. I think I may try this recipe next time: cream cheese pie crust.

The xanthan gum is a bit gross to work with. I doubt that syrupy Jello would be much better, but I couldn't get the image of crushed up bone marrow out of my head. :p Not very appetizing.

Tastes great though :) The crust is weird, but not inedible. The strawberries are fantastic, and just don't think too much about the filling.
