Sweet Pastry – Gluten and Dairy Free


This sweet pastry can be used for Desserts of all kinds that call for shortcrust pastry. I love it made into Jam Tarts. They just melt in the mouth and are far better than the shop bought gluten free. Probably a lot cheaper as well

This pastry can also be used for my Bakewell Tarts, Lemon Tarts, Ginger tarts and Mince pies

Sweet Pastry – Gluten and Dairy Free

The ingredients I use make the pastry smell and taste like the real thing. I would advise you to use the dairy free spread rather than vegetable fat as it tastes better.


  • 140g dairy free fat (I use 'Pure' sunflower spread)
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 250g Gluten free Self Raising Flour (I use Glebe SR Flour)
  • 1 teaspoon soya flour (optional but makes the pastry turn golden when cooking)
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Cream fat and sugar together. Don't over beat though
  2. Add the egg and mix until smooth
  3. Mix flour with a pinch of salt and fold into the mixture gradually
  4. Turn out and knead on a floured surface until a nice pliable consistency
  5. If it's too sticky add a little more flour, if too dry add a small amount of water but not too much a little goes a long way
  6. Put into the fridge and use as required or put in the freezer for another day
