Gluten Free Pastafrola (Sweet Quince Pie)

Fall afternoons are perfect for baking this traditional Argentinean treat: Pastafrola (or Pasta Frola), made with Sweet Quince.
The filling is made of Quince Paste, that we buy in latino markets. If you have trouble finding quince paste, try it with Raspberry Marmalade, or other fruit preserves you can make at home.

Ingredients for the Gluten Free Pie dough:
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 stick of cold butter
Try to make this dough in a food processor, as quickly as you can. If you make it by hand, try not to touch the ingredients to much to avoid warming the butter. Place it immediately in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before rolling.

The filling takes 2 cups of Quince Paste (400 grams, or 3/4 of the can we find here in San Francisco) and 1 cup of hot boiling water.
