Gluten-free pastry

Being gluten-free, this pastry is easier to press in than to roll, and makes an excellent pear or apple tart.

225 gms plain gf flour
1 tsp Ward's gf baking powder
100 gm butter or Nuttelex
25 gm sugar
1 tsp guar gum

Sift flour, baking powder and guar gum together. Rub in butter. Add enough water to form a dough. Press into a 20 cm pie plate. Bake at 200°C 15-20 mins. Cool and fill with prepared filling.
