GF Pie Crusts

I haven't found a really good pie crust recipe yet, but the pie crust that I usually make is made of 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup lard, and some water - this is what I have been using and it works fine for now.
       Depending on what type of pie you are making, you can crush different types of gluten-free cakes or cookies. I crushed Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, put it in a pan, and used that for a Creamy Frozen Peanut Butter Pie.

To roll a crust out, there are a few ways you can do this. 

1. Roll it out in between 2 sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap. Peel off the top sheet of paper, then lay it in the pie pan and remove the second piece of paper. 

2. Roll it out on a GF floured surface. With a knife, cut the rolled crust into wedges as if you were cutting a pie. Peel the pieces up with a spatula (one at a time), put the pieces in the pie pan and push the seams together with your fingers.
Method #2:

3. Wrap the rolled pie crust loosely around a GF floured rolling pin, and roll it out over the pie pan.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
