Featherlight Pie Crust - Single Crust

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 1,212


1 1/4 cups GF Featherlight Mix
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening, chilled
4 to 5 tablespoons ice water


Mix together flour mix, xanthan gum and salt.

Cut in shortening with a pastry cutter or knives until it looks like coarse crumbs, not too fine. Sprinkle ice water over flour mix.

Gently mix the flour and water, breaking up large clumps with your fingers. The point is to lightly dampen most of the flour mixture without kneading the dough.

Press the dough into a ball. Roll out between sheets of flour dusted plastic wrap. You should be able to see swirls of shortening in the dough as you roll it out. Transfer the crust to a pie plate. Fill and bake according to recipe directions.
