Ingredients

2-1/4 cups Gluten-Free Flour Mix
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup cold butter OR margarine, cut into chunks
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup ice water

Instructions

Two different methods can be used to make this crust. Method #1 is quicker and results in a crust that is easier to crimp resulting in a more attractive pie. Method #2 requires a little more patience in getting the dough to hold together, but results in a flakier crust. Both work well and result in a delicious pie crust!


Method #1 – Manual Version


Blend together flour mix and salt. Cut in butter and shortening using two forks or a pastry blender until the size of lima beans. Beat egg in a small bowl with a fork; add vinegar and water. Stir into flour, forming a ball. Knead a bit in the bowl to hold together.


Cover and chill for 1 hour (or more).


Divide dough in half and roll out between 2 pieces of waxed paper. Peel off paper and place crust in 9-inch pie plate.


Fill pie shell with desired filling; place remaining crust over top. Use a fork to seal edges of pie. Bake as pie recipe directs.


For a baked crust (to fill later), pierce sides and bottom of crust with fork. Bake at 400°F for 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly browned. Fill with desired pie filling.


Method #2 – Stand Mixer Version


Blend together flour mix and salt in a large mixer bowl. Add butter and shortening and beat with mixer. Add egg, vinegar and water. Mix until the dough forms a ball. Knead a bit to hold together, if necessary.
