Tart pastry crust is similar to pie crust but sweeter and more cookie-like. This recipe works for an 11-inch tart pan. Use it with your favorite tart filling recipes or fill it with my dairy-free dark chocolate tart filling recipe! Be sure to use the Superfine Flours in gluten-free pastry recipes. Regular stone-ground flours won't work here. 

½ cups superfine brown rice flour
½ cups superfine sweet rice flour
½ cups millet flour
½ cups potato starch
¼ cups maple sugar (or organic cane sugar)
½ teaspoons sea salt
½ teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoons xanthan gum (optional)
¾ cups organic palm shortening
½ cups non-dairy milk
1 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
