  • 142 grams 1 cup White Flour Mix
  • 4 grams 1 teaspoon organic cane sugar
  • 3 grams ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 gram Pinch of baking powder
  • 10 grams (1 packed tablespoon) Pixie Dust
  • 112 grams ½ cup butter
  • 6 grams 1 ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 117 grams ½ cup water
  1. Stir together all the flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and pixie dust till you get an even color.
  2. Using your hands, rub the butter into the flour, smearing the mixture between your fingers.
  3. Continue till the mixture resembles sand with a few chunkier pieces.
  4. Add the vinegar and stir.
  5. Add the water a bit at a time, stirring with your hand to incorporate the water.
  6. The dough should hold together with a gentle squeeze.
  7. If you need another tablespoon of water to reach this consistency, that is fine. Everyone’s flours have a different moisture content, just based on regional moisture differences.
  8. Divide the dough in half, form into a neat disc about an inch tall.
  9. Wrap well in plastic and chill for at least ½ hour.
  10. Cover your rolling surface with tapioca flour. Remove one disc of dough from the plastic, sprinkle generously with tapioca flour.
  11. Place on prepared surface and begin to roll.
  12. Roll lightly as a butterfly with almost no downward pressure. Just allow the dough to move gently flatter, keeping the board and surface of the dough well sprinkled with tapioca flour.
  13. Makes 2 single pie shells
