Spray 9" pie pan with cooking spray. Generously dust with rice flour. Mix flours, sugar, xanthan gum and salt in large bowl of electric mixer. Add butter and mix until crumbly and resembling coarse meal. Add egg and citrus juice. Mix on low until dough holds together; it should not be sticky. Form dough into a ball and place on a sheet of wax paper. Top with a second sheet of wax paper and flatten dough to 1 inch thickness. Roll out dough between the 2 sheets of wax paper. If dough seems tacky, refrigerate for 15 minutes before proceeding. Remove top sheet of wax paper and invert dough into pie pan. Remove remaining sheet of wax paper and crimp edges for single-crust pie.
