hi ppl. my mum-in-law has celiac disease, she is 79 and was only diagnosed about 5 years ago. she had gone all her life enjoying breads and cakes etc with no prob up until then. she was wondering if anyone knows if they make gluten-free pastries, like puff pastry. she loves pies and stuff like that and used to love to make her own pies using puff pastry, but since she got diagnosed with celiac disease hasnt bothered. she thinks that maybe there might be a recipe to make her own pastry, that she could try if anyone has one, that is if it is not commercially available. any help would be great. just a side note, one of her sisters has just been diagnosed with celiac disease as well one of her 3 daughters, so it is cetainly going around in the family.

cheers

thanks for the reply stacie, although i guess i should have mentioned that we are in australia!! never mind. i know there are places here in Asutralia where you can order stuff over the net. we are lucky enuff too that one of our local supermarkets has a very limited range of gluten-free foodstuffs, so all is not completely lost!! ha ha. just love to find gluten-free pastry.

Hi eppo,

I have not tried this recipe before, so I can't say how it will turn out, but I found this in one of my gluten-free cookbooks.

Sweet Pastry Crust

Ingedients:

2 TBSP shortening

1/3 cup sugar

2 TBSP oil

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring

1/3 cup potato starch

1/2 cup corn starch

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 tsp salt

3 tsp water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine shortening and sugar. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix well to remove all lumps. Place dough into bottom of a greased springform pan. Top as desired, then bake until crust is light golden brown.

This thin crust is perfect with fresh fruits and tarts. It is used with the Apple Tart recipe in this book, but other fresh fruits work well, too.

I hope this works out for you and your mom. :)

God bless,

Mariann

    • Love reading this story as it is rare (I think) to find someone else with the swallowing issues!  Hate that this is your experience however!   My daughter also has the swallowing issues and it got so severe (we had no idea about Celiac) that she had to do intensive therapy to learn how to swallow again.  It got better but never resolved.  Once she went gluten-free it got way better though a recent exposure to oats caused it to flare up again.  Do you mind me asking - Has your swallowing issues 100% resolved being gluten-free?  Does it ever actually go away and stay away or will it always pop up from time to time?
    • I will say what everyone else says and get tested again with the endoscope and biopsy to confirm, you will need to be on gluten for 12 weeks for blood test 2 weeks for endoscope at least a slice of bead a day.  The thing about celiac is many symptoms can be quite minor, hell even before I had my MAJOR symptoms show I had some of the other issues show up in my every day life and I just thought it was normal.  Regardless if you keep eating gluten with celiac disease it will slowly eat away at your body internally til it does become a problem. Celiac is a autoimmune disease that reacts to the gluten proteins, and has misdirected attacks on your own body internally by mistake trying to kill the gluten. Now the damage can lead to all kinds of other auto immune diseases, random allergies, food intolerance, and even cancer.   I suggest if you do have it, stay on the gluten-free diet, your just basically changing brands there are many gluten-free food versions of everything now days. Be thankful you got this early, I developed issues with dairy, corn, peanuts, and a whole list of others along with another autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes it so I can not eat sugars or carbs or my intestines swell.  Getting on a gluten-free diet before your damage progresses will not only keep you healthier for longer, and let you live a pretty normal life but also save you from this pain and very limited diet if the damage progresses too much. As to your fatigue, you changed over to gluten-free diet, you stopped eating a bunch of the Fortified foods, and depending on the route you took of either whole foods ore more processed foods. You could be eating to many empty carbs, starches, and not enough nutrients. OR if you took the whole foods approach you be lacking in your daily calorie intake or not the right ratio of nutrients. You might have to supplement a few of them.
    • REALLY odd call out here, I am attending a anime convention called A-Fest in Dallas come August, I need someone to split the room with it who is gluten-free. I take extra precautions, I COOK all the food, bring only CERTIFIED foods into the room, The room will be Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free. I am trying to find someone to split the room cost with, that would be safe to be around I CAN NOT AFFORD to get sick at one of these things, it is one of my few joys left in life and get very paranoid around them. So I need someone who is also gluten-free to make sure the room stays safe (YES I have done with with a non celiac with the rules down and well stuff happens so not chancing it). Room split is food coverage comes to $400 if it is just two people.  4 day convention, I will arrange a meal plan around your diet as long as it is free of my allergens. I will also provide various snacks, baked goods, and even stuff to take home with you.   https://animefest.org/ ^Convention info.
    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.
