Ingredients:  
1 cup almond flour
5 tablespoons coconut flour
teaspoon xanthan gum
teaspoon kosher salt
teaspoon lemon or orange zest optional
3 ounces unsalted grass-fed butter cold
cup cream cheese cold
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
egg wash optional (for glossy finish)

Directions:
Directions:
Add almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, salt and zest (optional) to food processor and pulse until evenly combined. Add butter and cream cheese and pulse for just a few seconds until crumbly. Add in egg and vinegar and pulse until the dough just begins to come together (but stop before it forms into a ball). Like with any pastry dough, make sure not to over-process the dough. The mixture ought to resemble coarse breadcrumbs rather than cookie dough. Turn out the dough onto cling film and pat into a round. Refrigerate for at least one hour, or up to 3 days. You can, alternatively, freeze the pie crust at this point and thaw out as needed (just as regular pie crust!).


Roll out dough between parchment paper. It's more fragile than regular pie crust, so you need to work quickly and in cold conditions. You can patch up any cracks that occur by pinching the dough together. And if at any point the crust becomes unmanageable, simply pop it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before carrying on. Once shaped (pie, empanadas, etc), pop it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes prior to baking (as it will help to keep its shape better and come out flakier). Brush with egg wash for a glossy finish (optional, but highly suggested).

Bake at 390F for 10-12 minutes if making something small such as crackers. And up to 30 minutes for empanadas and such. Just keep an eye out for it, as grain free flours have a tendency to brown suddenly rather than gradually.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
One batch is enough for a pie base (or galette). So if doing a latticed pie, you'll want to double the recipe.
