Step 1

In a medium bowl, blend the flour mix, xanthan gum, salt and sugar. Cut into the shortening until coarse crumbs form. In a small bowl, beat the vinegar and egg together with a fork. Add the ice water.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a fork and keep adding liquid until the dough forms a ball. Work a little with your hands to obtain a smooth texture. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more before rolling out.

Divide the dough in half and roll out on sweet rice flour - covered waxed paper or plastic wrap. Use as much of the sweet rice flour as needed to work easily. Place in a pie tin. If using plastic wrap for easier handling, move it to the pie tin and invert the dough into the pan. Bake as directed for the filling used.

For a baked crust, prick the pastry with a fork on sides and bottom. Bake the crust in a preheated 450-degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned. Cool before filling.
