Some other reviewers have said that it's difficult to work and maybe a bit stodgy. I found this too, but I found a way around it that I'd like to share ...

I make it up with butter, an egg, and 3 tablespoons water (the packet says four, but it doesn't mention an egg). This gets whizzed about in the processor until it's formed itself into a lump. The lump is indeed squishy and I wouldn't fancy trying to roll it out, not even between sheets of baking paper. At this point I take a tinfoil pie plate and slap the lump in the middle; then mould it so that it's fairly even and looks OK at the edges. Then I put it in the fridge for at least half an hour; then straight into the oven. Result - perfectly OK base for quiche, bakewell tart, or what you will. Also you don't waste any.

I haven't yet tried making a two-crust pie, but I hope this helps if you're struggling with a squidgy pastry base.

My daughter is gluten inolerant and it's been a big struggle finding replacements for all the things she liked and got used to before the intolerance was diagnosed. Pastry is of course a fairly important basic ingredient and we've found that making your own from GF flour is a hit and miss affair.

Thank you Mrs Crimble!

Just add water and this mix makes a very acceptable pastry. It is quite tricky to work - if you get it too wet it turns into a sticky mushy mess - but even if you get it just right, it doesn't hold together like normal pastry: it's best used in pie tins or dishes and it needs to be formed quite thick. Consequently, the finished pie is rather stodgy and a lot of pastry gets left on the side of the plate.

It has an unassuming but somewhat distinctive taste - slightly salty - and texture - slightly gritty. Failings aside, it does the job well enough.

I usually buy this at Sainsbury's so I know what a really good product it is. They have recently discontinued this so I had to look elsewhere. I ordered it from Amazon and it arrived in two days, GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!. Although I had to buy it in a large quantity (a box of 10 and a box of 5) to get it delivered free the use by date was end of 2016 so I have no worries of it going out of date. I will certainly be buying this again when my supplies run out. Highly recommend it.

I have recently been diagnosed with a wheat intolerance and I thought I would give this pastry mix a go. I have so far made a chicken pie and an apple pie (adding the sugar to the mix) and I am very impressed with it - it is just like a short crust pastry. Even my Dad has said the pastry is nice. It is so easy to make and I roll it out between 2 pieces of cling film.

It's the closest thing to 'real' pastry I've tasted since having to be dairy & gluten free. It's going to become a regular in my house - now I just need to see if I can fool my husband into thinking it's regular pastry. I think he won't notice - it's that good.

I have only one concern about this delivery. The package had been wet and a couple of the outside of the pastry packets were sodden and burst. The pastry was intact but thought it was worth mentioning. Has never happened before.
