Tart Shell
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 2 cups cassava flour
  • 1 cup cold leaf lard (snow white, odorless lard best for pastries)
  • 8-10 tbsp ice cold water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place flour and lard in food processor. Pulse until crumbs form.
  3. Add water and sea salt, pulse until a ball forms.
  4. Place 9-inch tart pan on a baking sheet.
  5. Use fingers or a tart tamper to mold dough into tart pan. Prick dough all over with fork.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
Be aware that cassava flour does not have any gluten in it, which is what makes regular flour crusts better hold their shape. This tart crust tastes delicious, but may be a bit crumbly when served. Well worth avoiding the gluten!
