    In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, except yeast. Cut the shortening into small pieces and cut into the dry ingredients with a dough paddle attachment on an electric mixer, by hand using a pastry cutter, or in a large food processor.

    In a smaller bowl, stir together the liquid ingredients until combined. Slowly add liquid mixture to the dry ingredient bowl, mix with the paddle attachment and pour in the yeast, stirring until the lumps are removed from the dough. Beat an additional 2 minutes thereafter.

    Dust a clean counter or pastry mat and your hands with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose

    Flour. Grab small fist-fulls of the wet dough, patting into a 5 inch square by liberally dusting the dough and your hands with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour . Lay the squares onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush off excess flour.

    Makes approximately 7 danish squares.

    Cinnamon Apple Filling

    Ingredients:
    •  3 tart apples, peeled and coarsely chopped
    •  ¼ cup light brown sugar
    •  2 Tbs. butter or non-dairy alternative (e.g. Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
    •  1 Tbs. cinnamon

    Directions:

    Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon, stirring to combine. Add the apples and stir to coat with the sugar-butter mixture. Stir periodically to coat and keep cooking all the apples. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the sugar-butter mixture is thin and the apples are tender. Set aside to cool.

    Cream Cheese Filling

    Ingredients:
    • 1 recipe danish dough
    • 12 oz. cream cheese (dairy or soy)
    • ¾ cup granulated cane sugar
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract

    Directions:

    Whisk together cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. Place in a sealed container and refrigerate or freeze until thick.

    Gluten-Free Pastries

    Pinwheels:  Using a pizza cutter or pastry wheel, cut a slit from each of the 4 corners almost to the center, but not intersecting or cutting through the center. Place a dollop of cheese or cinnamon apples in the center and brush the remaining exposed pastry with egg wash. Fold every other tip into the center, and dab each corner with milk or water to help them to adhere to one another. Gently lift to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with oiled wax paper and place in a warming drawer or oven preheated to 200 F then turned off for 30 minutes to proof.

    Preheat oven to 350 F (static) or 325 F (convection).  Remove the wax paper and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and resistant to a light touch (i.e. when pressed with a gentle fingertip, it rebounds rather than leaving a divot).

    Envelopes: Place a dollop of cheese or cinnamon apples in the center and brush the remaining exposed pastry with egg wash. Fold each opposite corner into the center, and dab each corner with milk or water to help them to adhere to one another. Gently lift to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with oiled wax paper and place in a warming drawer or oven preheated to 200 F then turned off for 30 minutes to proof.

    Preheat oven to 350 F (static) or 325 F (convection).  Remove the wax paper and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and resistant to a light touch (i.e. when pressed with a gentle fingertip, it rebounds rather than leaving a divot).

    Blanket: Turn the square so that it is a triangle with a tip at the top and bottom.  Place an elongated dollop of cheese or cinnamon apples in the center and extend to the top and bottom corners, leaving the right and left corners without filling, and brush the remaining exposed pastry with egg wash. Fold the right and left corners into the center, and dab each corner with milk or water to help them to adhere to one another. Gently lift to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  OCover the baking sheet with oiled wax paper and place in a warming drawer or oven preheated to 200 F then turned off for 30 minutes to proof.

    Delicious! I made these and used my homemade peach preserves as the filling and topped with a powdered sugar/almond extract/half'nhalf drizzle. Hubby said this was a keeper! They are soft and yummy. I used my baby's non-refrigerated peach yogurt in the dough.

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
