This dough makes enough pastry for two family sized pies, if you want to make a sweet dessert pastry just add 2 tablespoons of castor sugar before adding the egg. Never skip the chilling and resting process as this helps to reduce the amount of shrinking during baking.


  1. Sift the flour mix, xanthan, and salt into a bowl, rub in the fats.
  2. When the mixture resembles breadcrumbs add beaten egg and water bring together into dough. (Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, if dough becomes too wet compensate by adding a touch more flour mix.).
  3. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out and use as required.
