This gluten free pie crust is a great alternative to the real deal for when you need to adapt your old fashioned favourite! There is a vegan option here too!
Add the flour, xanthan gum, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon to a food processor or large bowl. Pulse or mix to combine.
Add the shortening and butter and pulse (or mix with hands or a pastry blender) until the butter is the size of peas. Slowly add the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing or mixing in between until the pastry just holds together when pressed gently against the side of the bowl.
Empty the pastry on to a sheet of plastic wrap, form into a flat disc, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before rolling out and baking (bake according to your pie recipe once the filling is in!).
