Most pies can be made gluten free, but it's the pie crust that is the problem. I make my gluten free pie crust from Pantry Perfect Pie Crust Mix found in the gluten free section at Wal-mart. This mix makes 4 delicious pie crusts. Pre-baking the crust, even when making a pie that you cook in the crust such as a pecan pie or coconut pie, makes a crisper crust. I bake all 4 crusts at the same time and freeze the extras. If you can't find this mix, try ordering it from the website for Gluten Free Pantry products: www.glutino.com
Cook pie filling over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it comes to a full boil. Set aside.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add cream of tartar and beat and gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
Pour pie filling into pie crust and spread the meringue over filling sealing to edge of crust.
Bake 325 degrees F for approximately 12 minutes or until meringue is golden brown.
Chill and enjoy.
