Gluten Free Pastry

Gluten Free Pastry is a nice, light, fluffy addition to your baking repertoire.  This easy recipe is a little more delicate than regular pastry but rolls out well and will complement any of your baking creations.

When making a pie I roll it out between pieces of plastic wrap sprinkled with flour.  That way I can use the bottom plastic to help flip the pastry into the pie plate. For pie patties I just use the plastic wrap over the top.

This recipe makes enough pastry for a double crust pie or for a dozen pie patties as pictured in this description.

To begin making Gluten Free Pastry I beat an egg in a small bowl with some vinegar and cold water.  Then I set the bowl aside.

Next I measured some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, granulated sugar and a bit of salt into a mixing bowl.

After blending them together I added in some shortening.

I used a pastry cutter to blend the shortening into the flour until the mixture resembled small peas.

Then I added in the egg mixture I had set aside earlier.

I stirred the ingredients together and finished by using my hands to knead the dough into a ball which I then divided into 2 balls of pastry.

This time I was making pie patties so I did not put plastice wrap on the bottom but just put down some gluten free flour for rolling.  If making a pie I lay out plastic wrap first and then the flour.

Next I flattened the pastry into a disc, sprinkled it with flour and then placed a sheet of plastic wrap on top to prevent the roller from sticking to the dough.

After it was rolled out to the desired thickness I used a 3″ cookie cutter to make rounds for the pie patties.

For a pie I would use the bottom plastic wrap to help invert the dough and drop it into a pie plate.

For a single crust pie I would bake it in a preheated 425F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

For a filled pie, follow directions for that pie.
