  • 1 1/2 cups Nutri-flour
  • 3 ounces cold butter
  • 1 egg yolk


  • Sift flour into medium-size bowl.
  • Add butter into flour creating small fine balls using a pastry blender.
  • Add egg mixture and mix until the flour and egg sticks together. Add a little water if necessary the mixture turns into a ball.
  • Place in refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from refrigerator and place on floured surface.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll pastry out until it is big enough to accommodate your pie dish or quiche pan (including the sides).
  • Next is a secret cook’s trick: place wax paper on pastry and fill pastry shell with enough dried beans (you can use dried rice as well) for 10 - 15 minutes until pastry is light golden brown. I could have used this trick many, many years ago quite nicely.
  • Remove pan from oven, and remove beans and wax paper. Set aside to cool.
  • SBcanning recommends the butter pastry for any pie that you do not need to top, such as pumpkin pie, or quiche.
