Our webshop is closed temporarily. We plan to be open again on Monday morning. We are currently only selling a ‘gluten free food box’ intended for coeliacs and those with gluten intolerances. Unfortunately, we are unable to take online orders for anything else at this stage. This is due to continued high demand and limited order processing capability in our webshop operation.

Gluten Free Sweet Pastry

  1. Line a 20cm/8”tart or flan dish with parchment or rub the edges with butter and preheat the oven.
  2. Sieve the flour, sugar and xanthan gum into a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add the butter and using a fork or pastry blender to work them together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Add the egg yolks and mix it in.
  5. Using your hands, gather everything together to form a smooth ball of pastry dough.
  6. Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment or film, remove the film and transfer it to the prepared dish. Or simply press the dough into the dish using your fingers.
  7. Cut away any pastry that hangs over the edge of the dish.
  8. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.
  9. Chill until required.

Blind Baking

  1. Lay a large piece of parchment over the raw pastry, making sure all the edges are covered.
  2. Scatter the ceramic baking beans (or rice or flour) over the parchment, spreading them evenly over the surface.
  3. If the pastry is to have a cold filling, bake for 15-18 minutes then remove from the oven and carefully lift the parchment and contents off the pastry. Return the pastry to the oven and cook for a further 5-6 minutes. Fill according to your recipe.
  4. If the pastry is to be filled and cooked again, bake for 10-12 minutes then remove from the oven, carefully lift the parchment and contents off the pastry and return it to the oven and cook for a further 4-5 minutes without browning too much.
  5. Fill and bake according to your recipe.


20cm/8” round tart or flan dish, 2 cups ceramic baking beans, rice or flour, parchment paper and mixing bowl.
