Makes one pie shell or 4 tartlets
1 Â½ cup rice flour
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
Â½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick of butter, cold and cubed
In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and vanilla and salt. Cut in butter with two forks or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water (1 tablespoon at a time), mix until dough just comes together. If dough is too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Turn out dough from bowl onto work surface, and knead once or twice to combine. Divide dough in four equal parts or one part. Shape into disks. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
