How to Make Gluten and Dairy Free S’mores Pie Crust Cookies
These two bite treats might be a mouthful to say but they are the ultimate easy confection. They’re just as easy to make as they are quick cooking.
Time needed: 30 minutes
Gluten Free pie crust is rolled with s’mores seasoning and baked with giant fluffy marshmallows.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Prepare your pie crust. If making it from scratch or a mix, make it ahead of time. If using store bought dough follow the package directions to defrost it if frozen.
Add the s’mores seasoning and sugar to a bowl and mix to combine.
Roll out the pie dough. Sprinkle the s’mores seasoning all over it. Roll tightly into a log.
Slice the dough into twelve equal sized cookies. Place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
Top each cookie with a marshmallow.
Let the cookies bake for 10-14 minutes or until the marshmallows and the cookies themselves are golden brown.
If desired you can use a kitchen torch to lightly toast the top of the marshmallows so they are a little more charred.

Top Tip for Gluten and Dairy Free S’mores Pie Crust Cookies
Even though these cookies are fast baking, the heat of the oven will cause the marshmallows to slightly melt. If they start coming off of the top of the cookies use a fork to gently place them back on top of the cookie.
Gluten Free Flours
My go to for baking is Bob’s Red Mill 1:1. It is a blend of several different gluten free ingredients and I find it just works consistently well for what I need. I could blend flour myself but I choose to spend my time other ways and the 1:1 is a really good product.
Oat Flour can give you a chewier, more moist product. It can lend a nice sweet flavor to baked foods and is a flour I tend to mix with others if I want a lighter or fluffy result. I am always very careful to buy organic gluten free oats because they can be sprayed with nasty stuff and be processed in a way that they are no longer gluten free.
Almond Flour has a nice nutty flavor but can tend to dry out what you are preparing. I like to balance it with an extra egg if I am adding it to meatloaf for example and add banana or egg if it is in a sweet treat. Your end product could be a bit denser if you are using straight almond flour as well. I do like using almond flour as bread crumbs or a crunchy topping on savory dishes.
Arrowroot is my normal choice for a thickener in sauce or gravy. It is great for things you want a good crunch on that would normally be dredged in flour. Arrowroot can also be used to temper other gluten free flours for sweets and baked goods.
Brown Rice Flour can also be used in combination with other gluten free flours for baked goods. I like to use it when making a roux and brown rice noodles are a favorite.
More Gluten Free Flours
Amaranth is another gluten free flour that works well when blended. It has a nice nutty flavor that makes it good for crusts, tortillas and breads.
Coconut Flour has a bit of a sweet coconut flavor. It tends to absorb liquid so you will need to adjust your recipe but it does give a nice light texture.
Corn Flour is a great thickener, makes delicious tortillas and one of my favorites, corn bread. Just make sure the corn flour you are buying was proceed in a gluten free environment and from a clean source.
Cassava Flour is the most similar to white or all purpose flour but can be expensive if you are using it often and is high in carbohydrates.
Tapioca is a great thickener as well for soups, pies and sauces and works well when combined with other flours.
Chickpea or garbanzo is used often in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine… Think hummus, falafel, flatbreads. It has lots of healthy benefits and a mild nutty flavor. You can also use the water from the beans, called aquafaba, as an egg replacer or instead of cream for whipped cream. Crazy, I know, but it works so stop dumping it down the drain.
Gluten Free Grains
The gluten free grains we grab for most often are…
Quinoa- easy to make and flavor and is high in fiber and protein. It is actually one of the plant proteins that is a complete protein.
Oats are also good for fiber and a bit of protein but make sure they are clean and gluten free.
Buckwheat actually has no wheat in it but does have fiber, protein and trace minerals. I love buckwheat noodles. I also add them to salads and soups for texture and a bit of “chew”.
