Mrs Mix It's Gluten Free Pie & Tart Crust
Home Made Gluten Free Pie or Tart Crust Ingredients:
1/3 cup shortening plus 2 Tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup of butter chilled chopped
3 cups gluten free all purpose flour
1 teaspoon Xanthium gum
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Teaspoon salt
1 cup water chilled
This is the easiest recipe and it will only take you 2 to 3 min to make. Take the gluten free flour, Xanthium gum, Sugar and Salt and put in the food processor with dough blade ( picture below) pulse 3 times. Next add chopped chilled butter, pulse 4 times, Add Shortening divided equally around bowl. pulse again 4 times add 2/3 cup of water pulse again. The remainder of the water is used to add if needed. Do not need to much because you do not want it to get tough.
This will make enough dough for a top and a bottom of a shallow pie pan. Or 2 dozen tarts.
