Nana Pat’s Favourite Pastry Recipe


2/3 Cup Buttery Crisco Shortening Chilled

1 ½ Cup Gluten Free Cake And Pastry Flour

¾ Cup Gluten Free Regular Plain Flour

¾ Teaspoon Fine Salt

4-6 Tablespoon Ice Water – Use As Needed To Pull The Dough Together, My Kitchen Is Always Warm, So I Usually Use The 6 Tablespoons


Hand Method

Mix Flour And Salt Together In A Bowl

Cut The Crisco Into Very Small Pieces With A Pastry Cutter Or Knife

Add The Crisco To The Bowl With The Flour And Salt

Add The Ice Water – Start With 4 Tablespoons

Stir The Mixture Gently With A Fork To Make/Pull The Pastry Together

Do Not Over Mix – Otherwise The Pastry Will Become Tough

Food Processor Method

Mix Flour And Salt

Cut The Crisco Into Large Chunks With A Knife

Add The Flour And Salt With The Crisco Into The Food Processor

Just Pulse The Mixture 2 Or 3 Times To Ensure That The Crisco Becomes Pea-Like Pieces In The Flour

Add The Ice Water – Start With 4 Tablespoons

Pulse Gently 2-3 Times

The Dough Will Pull Away From The Sides Of The Food Processor

Do Not Over Mix – Otherwise The Pastry Will Become Tough
