recipe needs some tweeking, Guest Mickey

Apparently the person who came up with this recipe was not familar with gluten free flours and its their lack of GLUE. If you want to use this dough recipe, make sure to add a beaten egg. If the dough is still to dry, add enough ice cold water until the dough comes together. And remember if too liquidy add a a lil more of gluten free flour. Also to make sure the dough doesn't poof up on you when you prebake the crust, line the crust with parchment papers and then put dried beans on top. Back for 2 or 3 minute or just until the crust is lightly brown and feeling dry.
