Free of: Gluten and top allergens.
Requires: Two 7-inch tart pans
- 1⅓ cup (320 mL) all-purpose gluten-free flour
- 1⁄3 cup (85 mL) fine cane sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tsp (5 mL) xanthum gum*
- 1⁄3 cup (85 mL) vegetable oil
- 1⁄3 cup (85 mL) cold water
*Available at health food stores.
- Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and combine thoroughly. Drizzle oil slowly into bowl, stirring continuously with a fork, until mixture comes together in pea-sized pieces.
- Add cold water one tablespoon at a time until dough forms a ball. Divide into two halves, form into two disks and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for one hour.
- Pre-heat oven to 350° F.
- Remove dough from fridge. Place each disk between two sheets of parchment paper and roll each out to roughly an 8-inch circle.
- Peel off parchment paper and gently place dough into each tart pan, pressing gently into bottom and sides of pan, then trim excess dough. Pierce bottom of crusts with a fork multiple times.
- Bake tart crusts for 12-15 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and let cool.
- 3 pints fresh raspberries
- 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) tapioca flour
- 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) sugar
- 2 cups (475 mL) rice milk
- 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
- Zest of one lemon
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) raspberry jam
- In a medium saucepan, combine tapioca flour, cornstarch and sugar. Add half of the rice milk and cook over medium heat until dry ingredients have dissolved.
- Add remaining milk, vanilla and lemon zest. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5-8 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
- Spread 1 tbsp of raspberry jam over bottom of each prepared tart shell.
- Add filling on top of the jam and spread evenly.
- Top filling with fresh raspberries and dust lightly with powdered sugar if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate until just before serving.
