Baking Question

Recommended Posts

I am making a fresh pear custard tart for thanksgiving. I need some advice. It calls for a single crust pastry for the crust (obviously). The pastry calls for

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour (I would obviously sub my flour)

1/4 cup skim milk

3 tablespoons cooking oil.

mix until a dough ball forms.

now using my own flour.. should I add xanthan gum or anything?? I have never done this before. Any and all suggestions are welcome!!!!

Hi,

The flour mix I like to use has 1 tsp xanthan gum per cup. I think it works very well for baking. Or if you would like I could give you a recipe or two for pie crusts that I have.

Hope this was helpful,

Amy
