Gluten-Free Millet and Almond Shortcrust Pastry


75g millet flour

75g potato starch

60g ground almonds

1 pinch salt

60g ordinary salted butter

3/4 tsp guar gum

1 medium egg

4tsp tsp cold water


  1. Weigh the dry ingredients into a large bowl and dry whisk them to mix thoroughly.
  2. Rub the butter into flour with your fingertips, keeping it as cool as possible.
  3. Beat the egg in another bowl, and using a spatula stir the beaten egg and the cold water into the flour - it will be sticky.
  4. Pat the sticky mixture into a ball with the spatula and dust it with rice flour, then using your hands flatten it to a round shape about 1" thick, wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for up to an hour.  It keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days.

To use, roll out between 2 sheets of clingfilm dusted with rice flour, depending on the final shape it is possible to lift and manipulate it with your hands underneath the clingfilm while it remains cool.
