Gluten Free Pastry is not the easiest pastry to work with. Anyone that’s tried to have a go has probably had the same experience that it crumbles and falls apart very easily. This is probably the best recipe I have found so far!
So you will need:
250g Gluten Free Plain Flour, plus extra for dusting.
1/2 tsp xanthum gum
1/2 tsp salt
180g margarine at room temperature however I’ve used butter (can use dairy free, would recommend a hard margarine )
75ml of ice cold water
1. Combine the flour, xanthum gum and salt in a bowl, and the margarine or butter and rub into breadcrumbs.
2. Make a well in the centre and add the ice cold water and knead for a moment. Make a disc and ball and wrap in cling film and place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 mins.
3. Use as normal.
