My daughter's preschool is making pumpkin pie in a couple of weeks, and so far I've found a vegan pumpkin pie recipe that I'm going to try out.

Does anyone know of a store-bought tart shell or pie crust that is free of peanut, tree nut, egg and dairy?

Thanks so much.

Pillsbury Refridgerated Pie Crusts are egg, dairy, peanut and tree nut free.
They aren't gourmet but they do the trick in a pinch.
Look for them where you look for other Pillsbury products.

The only tart shells I have had luck with are the no name ones - I buy them at Zehrs, they have a yellow label. My daughter is allergic to dairy,eggs and peanuts and she has had no problems with them. For pumpkin tarts I just buy the canned pumpkin with the spices already added and sometimes mix in a little soy pudding and that's it and she loves them.

Sure beats making from scratch :)

Thanks for the replies! We don't have a Zehrs store here, but I'll suggest the Pillsbury ones to the school. Cheers.

I see you are in Vancouver, just to let you know Zehrs is the same company as Loblaws and Superstore, if you are interested in looking into the No name crusts. Also the EB Smith pie fillings are free of numerous allergens, their website is actually quite good in terms of listing out what allergens if any are in their various pie fillings. They have a chart for each product listing the allergens and then they put a check mark next to the allergen if the product contains it.

I used the Pillsbury Refridgerated Pie Crust last night for a Blueberry Pie. It was AWESOME! I'm a great baker and do virtually everything from scratch, but I have NEVER been able to master pie crust. This crust was flaky, tasty, easy to work with. Just thaw, roll, bake, eat!

I'm with you mharasym, I bake almost all baked goods we eat from scratch but pastry is my downfall. For the most part I'm not a fan of the Pillsbury products but their pie crusts are great. I've made chicken pot pie with them too.

Sobey's generic frozen pie crusts don't have dairy, eggs or nuts in their ingredients.

Glad to know about the Pilsbur pie crusts. Is this recently allergy-friendly? I will lookfor the pie crust. I have used other products (rolls,cinnamin buns) that had no warning and later carried one. I was told to always read their labels when I called.

Ah Becky, so glad you found this thread as I also used to detest making home made pie crusts. Just leave them out for a few minutes so they warm up enough to roll out and not break.
ED Smith pumpkin (in the can) is also made in a peanut/tree nut free facility.... DS loves pumpkin pie!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
