This recipe comes to us from Betty Doubravsky. My wife entered this in the Dolores County Fair here in Colorado and won three ribbons. - James Pie Pastry: 1 ½ cup sifted gluten-free flour * ½ cup soy flour 2 teaspoons xanthan gum ¼ - ½ teaspoon salt 2/3 cup Crisco or other shortening 5-7 tablespoons COLD water (I use 7) Sift flours, xanthan and salt; cut in shortening until likeness of cornmeal; sprinkle in water and mix with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half, rolling each half between sheets of wax paper until dough is about the thickness of 1/8 inch. Place into pie plate, fill with favorite gluten-free filling (fresh currants are not that easy to find) and bake as directed. * gluten-free flour 6 parts rice flour 2 parts potato starch flour 1 part tapioca starch flour Fresh Black Currant Filling: 3 Cups fresh Currants (heaping), crush ½ cup.
