Ingredients

  • Gluten-free flour mix

    2 cups

  • Gluten-free baking powder

    ½ tsp

  • Cream cheese, chilled

    130g

  • Butter, chilled

    165g

  • Egg, large

    1

  • Cold water

    1 tbsp

  • Pinch of salt

Method

STEP 1

Place the flour mix, salt and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to mix.

STEP 2

Cut the cream cheese and butter in to chunks and then add to the food processor.

STEP 3

Whizz until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

STEP 4

Whisk the egg and water together. Pour into the flour mixture and pulse until the mixture starts to clump together but is still crumbly. When you press some of the mixture together in your fingers it should feel like it will come together when it is removed from the food processor.

STEP 5

If it feels too dry add a few more drops of water but be careful not to add too much.

STEP 6

Tip out onto a clean surface and work the mixture with your hands until a smooth dough is formed.

STEP 7

Wrap in cling film and refrigerate until ready to use. It’s perfect for a French onion tart.
