Ingredients

Crust
Cooking spray, for greasing
2 cups WHITE GOLD all purpose gluten-free flour
½ cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
⅛ teaspoon salt
¾ cup unsalted butter

Filling
4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons potato starch

Preparation

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  2. Using a sifter, sift together the flour, confectioners’ sugar and salt into a large bowl. Incorporate the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Press the mixture into the bottom of the pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until golden.

Filling
