Gluten Free Pastry

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

75ml of ice cold water

Method

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.
