Gluten Free Pecan Pie

Ingredients

  • PASTRY
  • 200g FREEE Plain White Flour
  • 100g butter or vegan butter
  • 6 tbsp cold water
  • FILLING

Method

Pastry

  1. Put the flour and butter into a large bowl.
  2. Use a fork or pastry blender to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Avoid using your fingers for this.
  3. Stir in enough of the water to bring the pastry easily together into a soft slightly sticky ball of dough - it will appear a little wet but will absorb the liquid while resting.
  4. Cover the pastry with parchment or cling film and rest it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Oil or parchment line your baking tray and pre-heat the oven.
  6. Roll the pastry out between two pieces of cling film or parchment OR simply press the dough into the baking dish using your fingers.

Filling

  1. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the golden syrup and stir to mix.
  2. Pour the mixture into the pastry case.
  3. Arrange the pecans on top of the mixture.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
