Gluten Free Savoury Pastry

Gluten Free Savoury Pastry

Quantities for a small pie dish.

8oz / 225g GF Self Raising Flour
2oz / 55g White Flora or Trex
2oz / 55g Butter
3tbsp Cold Water
Pinch of Salt

Rub flour and fats together into crumb like mixture with hands.
Then add cold water, to bind. With gluten free it always helps to be on the moister side when using flour. So unlike normal pastry I would advise it to still have an almost sticky texture to the dough.

Wrap and place to cool in fridge.

To roll out I find that if its to cold it just breaks apart so with my hands I just reshape the dough ball to add a slight pliability to it. Dust the work top with flour and roll out as required.

This amount topped a large pie dish so for a full pie I would have needed to double the recipe.

I use GF Self Raising Flour the main reason being its my Nanny & Mother’s recipe so this is how i’ve always done it and with GF I think the self raising flour makes the pastry softer. Gluten Free can be as tough as old boots at times and need not be.

I used the pastry tonight to make a simple Ham Hock Pie.
