Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Ingredients

3/4 teaspoon Guar Gum
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Raw Sugar
1/2 cup Butter
1/4 cup Ice Water

Preparation

1
Mix flours, guar gum, sugar, and salt in a large bowl; add the butter in tablespoon chunks, and use a pastry blender to blend until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
2
Add ice water slowly, while gently stirring with a spatula just until dough holds together without being wet or sticky. Be careful not to over-work the dough. To test, squeeze a small amount together: If it is crumbly, add more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
3
Form dough into a ball. Flatten into a disc and wrap in plastic. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill at least 1 hour.
4
Roll out and use!
