Is there such a thing as gluten-free phyllo dough either to buy or make at home? My daughter asked for cherry turnovers and I can't find a gluten-free dough that I think would work like the flaky phyllo... How's come when we can't have something anymore thats what we crave..... I offered a cherry pie but she declined.....

Thanks to all the sherlock holmes detectives for helping me on this one........

I have this recipe on hand from before gluten free.

1/4 c. water

2 c. flour

4 tsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. salt

Sift flour and salt. Make a well, then add the water and olive oil in it.

Work the dough, and on a dusted board, knead it for about 5 minutes. It gets smooth. Roll it out in a huge rectangle, put a damp towel over it, and let it stay for about 15 minutes.

Work it out again so it's about 3x3 feet. Cut it with a knife to sheet size, and then use for your recipe.

I haven't made this gluten-free yet, but if I do I would probably use amaranth flour.

I don't want to burst anyone's bubble, but here's what I found out when I went to look for a recipe:

HOW A PHYLLO DOUGH SHEET STRETCHES AND STAYS TOGETHER: It's the gluten formed in the dough from wheat flour and moisture, mixed together that holds it together. Because there is oil in the recipe, it's not an effective as a classical shortener, such as butter or shortening, so long strands of gluten are formed in the dough. These strands are then stretched thinner and thinner until the sheets are as thin as tissue paper!.

I think this means someone will have to be VERY creative in order to figure out how to get it to work gluten-free.

i'm crushed!!! actually, i have never used phyllo dough---but i saw it for the first time in the store just the other day. what about pastry dough? the kind that you add butter to and fold over and roll out and then refridgerate and do it all over again several times------would it work with gluten free flour? (i've never made it with wheat flour)

lorka----why amaranth flour? i've never seen it anywhere. where do you get it?

I thought maybe a "fake" phyllo taste-alike? I just bought a new recipe book called "The Gluten-Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg last week. She uses potato starch flour and corn starch mixtures pretty much exclusively for her baking. These are much easier for me to find in the stores and cheaper, too I might add. I need to experiment with her pie crust recipes and see what happens. The recipes are pretty simple and straight-forward and not a huge list of ingredients. Pretty basic ingredients you may already have in the kitchen, which is great. I'll keep you all posted on the results. Just need to feel a little better and will get baking again soon. :)

Jen,

I'd love to see your Baklava recipe. We had Greek food for dinner and my son wanted Baklava and I felt really bad that I had to say no. I'd like some too!

I haven't perfected the technique yet but what my mom and I have done is used rice paper. We got the idea from a Gluten-Free cookbook (title escapes me right now) that said to use rice paper to do "en croutes". So... what we did was take the rice paper and then rub it with oil, I imagine you could do butter or margarine (I can't do dairy), and then sprinkled it with sugar. I also used sugar water to soak the rice papers. It worked pretty well, I had cherry filling on the inside. It's not really phyllo but it's crispy and at least lets me have a slight fantasy of past phyllo treats. It's also a heck of a lot simpler than mixing doughs and rolling it out thinly.

--- just a suggestion. And if you haven't tried it to do "en croutes", it's amazing! We did lamb the other night, yummmm.

Here in Canada I can get it just about anywhere. They are rice wrappers or rice paper depending on the company. What they use in Vietnamese cooking, for rice rolls. Perhaps in the international food section, or a chinese store. I know here you can get them in regular grocery stores, health stores, or chinese superstores. And you can get them in various sizes. They are round too, if that helps. Good luck. You'll find them

1 tsp gelatin

1 egg

¼-1/2 C milk of choice

1 stick butter, melted or margarine or oil*

1 tsp honey or agave nectar

1. Mix together rice flour, sweet rice flour, xanthan gum and gelatin. Make a well in dry ingredients large enough to hold the liquids.

2. Lightly beat egg with ¼ C milk, butter and honey. Pour this into well in dry ingredients. Mix everything together until you have a soft dough. (Depending on brand of rice flour, you may want to stir in more milk)..

3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap until ready to use for your favorite holiday pastry. Store in refrigerator if not using immediately.

*Use margarine or oil to make dairy-free dough.

Okay, here is the Baklava Recipe to go with the Filo/Phyllo dough recipe I posted above. This recipe is for Pistachio Baklava. Recipe states dough best if made a day ahead, no refrigeration is necessary. It can be frozen also.

Filling

4 C ground pistachios

1 C sugar

1 Tbsp cinnamon

4 Tbsp light vegetable oil

Cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease two 8-inch baking pans.

2. Put nuts, sugar and cinnamon into a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely ground with just a bit of texture.

3. Cut filo dough into 6 equal pieces. Wrap all but the piece you are working with in plastic wrap. Roll out one piece at a time, as thinly as possible, between two sheets of plastic wrap about 16" long. Remove top piece of plastic wrap. Carefully fit dough into one of pans. The piece should be large enough so that it fits up the sides and hangs over a bit. Roll out a second piece of dough the same way and fit it into the other pan. Sprinkle 1 C of ground nuts over the dough in each pan. Roll out two more pieces of filo and carefully lay over the filling. Sprinkle another cup of filling over the second layer of each pan. Roll out last two pieces of filo and carefully cover the layer of nuts. Trim edges that are hanging over the sides of pan. Leave enough to roll under to form an edge.

4. Using a sharp paring knife, score the top of baklava. Cut into 1 1/2" lengths. Then cut 1 1/2" widths wide, starting from one of the corners diagonally to the opposite corner to create and diamond shape.

5. Drizzle 2 Tbsp of oil over scoring of each baklava.

6. Bake for 30 minutes or until baklava is golden. Make syrup while baklava is baking.

Syrup

1 1/2 C sugar

3/4 C water

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 3" piece of a cinnamon stick

1 Tbsp honey or agave nectar

1. Put sugar, water, lemon juice and cinnamon stick into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.

2. Whisk in honey or agave. Set aside until baklava is finished baking.

3. Once baklava is baked, slice the scores again, cutting all the way through to the bottom.

4. Use a spoon to drizzle syrup into the cuts.

5. Cool completely before serving.

Enjoy Christine--let me know how it goes for ya!!

1/4 c. water

2 c. flour

4 tsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. salt

I was thinking maybe tapioca flour would be good for this since someone else on here mentioned rice sheets and they use tapioca flour

    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!    
    • I know for certain gastritis  is one of the main reasons I had the scope. That and my EOE symptoms . If it wasn’t for those I would have never been diagnosed 
    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
