Ingredients:
4oz Sorghum Flour or Rice Flour
6oz Almond Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp xanthan gum
2 heaped Tsp arrowroot powder
6 Tsp Hot water
8oz pure spread
3 Tbls water - if needed
1 Heaped Tsp Mixed Herbs 
3 Tsp Ground Flax Seeds


Take your ground flax seeds and mix them with the hot water until a wet paste is formed. This is called a Flax Egg.

Mix all the dry ingredients together with the mixed herbs.


Add half of the amount of pure stated and rub it into the flour.

When your mixture resembles bread crumbs this is where you should add your flax egg.

Mix the flax egg into the mixture loosely.

Also add your 3 tbls of water to the mixture too and stir just a little.

Turn the mixture out onto a sheet of baking paper.

Add the other half of your pure.

Squish the mixture together.

Then fold the baking paper over the mixture and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out.

Once you have rolled it out use the baking sheet to fold the dough over onto itself like folding a scarf.

Repeat the process again a couple of times until your pastry looks like the bellow photo.
Wrap in the baking paper and store in the fridge until needed.
