Ingredients
  1. 1 cup sorghum flour (I think rice flour would also work though I haven't tried it yet)
  2. 1/3 of a cup vegan shortening (or butter if not vegan)
  3. 1/2 tsp salt
  4. 1 tbsp ground chia + 3 tbsp of water (or 1 egg if not vegan)
  5. for savoury crust, add a pinch of paprika, optional
  6. for sweet crust, add a dash of maple syrup, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the ground chia + 3 tbsp of water into a bowl and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the salt, plus any other spices you are using, to the flour and mix well.
  4. With your hand, crumble the shortening and add to the flour mixture.
  5. Add the chia mixture (and maple syrup if using for sweeter dishes).
  6. Work the dough with your hands until it forms a balls.
If using the crust on top of the pie do the following
  1. Take 2 large sheets of parchment paper. Lay one sheet down and sprinkle with flour.
  2. Place the dough ball onto the parchment sheet and sprinkle with flour.
  3. Place the other piece of parchment paper on top.
  4. Carefully roll out the dough with a rolling pin until you reach the desired size and shape.
  5. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and carefully flip over the crust onto the pie.
  6. Gently remove the top sheet of parchment paper and gently pat down the edges of the crust so that they stick to the edge of your pie pan.
  7. Poke a few holes into the crust with a fork (if your filling needs to be baked) and bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
If using the crust on the bottom of your pie, do the following
  1. Place the dough ball into your pie pan and use your hands to pat it on the bottom and the sides of your pie pan.
  2. If your pie filling does not need to be baked, pre-bake the crust for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. If your filling does need to be baked, poke a few holes in the crust, add the filling and bake according to filling directions.
Notes
  1. This makes either the top or bottom crust. For both, double the recipe.
