Preparation steps

1.
For the pastry: mix together the potato starch, cornflour, brown rice flour and sweet rice flour in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
2.
Add the xanthan gum, guar gum and salt and stir well.
3.
Add the frozen butter and using an electric whisk mix on the lowest speed, until the edges of the butter pieces have started to soften.
4.
Pour in the water and mix until absorbed.
5.
Turn out the mixture onto a large sheet of non-stick baking paper and knead it together with your hands, just enough to bring it together.
6.
Place another sheet of baking paper on top and gently roll the dough out to a rough rectangle, taking care not to roll over the edges.
7.
Fold the bottom third of the dough towards the middle, then fold the top third on top of it.
8.
Rotate the dough one-quarter turn to your right (clockwise).
9.
Roll out the dough gently as before, until smoother and more cohesive. Fold the bottom third up and overlap the top third over it.
10.
Rotate the dough one-quarter turn to your right (clockwise).
11.
Repeat the turning, rolling and folding process twice more.
12.
Wrap the folded dough in cling film and chill for 2 hours.
13.
Remove from the refrigerator and stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
14.
Repeat the turning, rolling and folding process twice more. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for a further 2 hours, then stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before using.
15.
Divide the pastry in half. Roll each out into a round between 2 sheets of non-stick baking paper, about 23cm|9" diameter.
16.
Place one round on the baking tray.
17.
Beat together the marzipan, butter and sugar until soft. Gradually beat in the egg. Stir in the almonds and cornflour until blended.
18.
Spread on the pastry round; leaving a 2.5cm|1" border.
19.
Brush the border with egg yolk. Cover with the second round of pastry and press to seal the edges. Mark the top with a sharp knife, as in the photo. Chill for 30 minutes.
20.
Heat the oven to 220°C (200° fan) 425°F gas 7. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
21.
Brush with the remaining egg yolk and bake for 15 minutes.
22.
Reduce the oven temeprature to 200°C (180° fan) 400°F gas 6 and bake for a further 20 minutes.
23.
To glaze: heat the sugar and water in a pan and bring to a boil. Cook steadily until syrupy. Stir in the rum.
24.
Brush over the pie as soon as it comes out of the oven. Leave to cool.
