Need Advice On Puff Pastry Recipe

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to get opinions on this gluten free puff pastry recipe. Specifically I want to know if it'll work for the recipe I have in mind, which is (warning, images are kinda icky as it's a Halloween scary food recipe) puff pastry intestines. I've never worked with even regular store-bought puff pastry, so making it from scratch will be rather interesting. It seems like the pastry would need to be extra-pliable for this, so I would really like to get some opinions before I order the rather pricey flour.

I do intend to do a practice run before making it for a party, but I need to do that soon since it will be October 14; every year for the Walking Dead season premiere I get together with friends for a creepy food potluck and to watch the show. Anyway if anybody has thoughts on this I would really really appreciate it!

Hmmmm...I've done a lot of baking, including puff pastry, and am very curious about the outcome because the photos do not look like puff pastry actually should (sort of like flat gluten-free biscuits). They almost look like flat discs to me. I wonder whether it would be worth it or not. I can tell by looking at the dough it is gluten-free dough which acts differently. I would still try it if I were you (you just never know!) but I would not count on it behaving like its gluten counterpart.

Is the main thing about the looks that it's not as puffy as puff pastry should be? I don't really know what puff pastry is vs. regular pastry or anything... Ordinarily I'm really not much into baking or baked goods, but for this potluck I go the extra mile. Do you think this would at least stretch and seal around a filling? I think that would really be the main thing I'd need. Should I look into a different type of recipe, like for plain pastry dough? Or something else entirely?

I am so glad to see this thread! Thanks for starting it, and thanks to those who posted links to the puff pastry recipes. I never thought I'd enjoy the light, flaky goodness of puff pastry ever again! I have hope!

And, I think those pastry intestines look really fun! Something we might add to our repertoire this year. My oldest daughter is deeply into Halloween, does our house up inside and out for the month of October, and if she finds the right guy to marry is going to do a Halloween themed wedding. Her birthday is October 29, and she LOVES being close to Halloween! Lucky girl, she went to university at a school with official colors of orange and black. :D

In puff pastry you should be able to see hundreds of delicate layers - that is what the butter and folding are for. I think in puff pastry there are nearly 1,000 layers! Puff pastry is far different from pie pastry or Danish pastries. It is light, puffy and filled with wonderful layers.

What type of filling are you using? Is is savoury or sweet? There are excellent pizza/calzone dough recipes that are fantastic for fillings. There are regular pastry recipes (i.e. pie crust) that are also good for fillings. So, if all you want to do is fill soomething, puff pastry likely isn't it. You normally place things on top of puff pastry or you use puff pastry for things such as Beef Wellington or on top of Steak and Ale Pie.

I want to do cherry pie filling. The recipe I want to make uses puff pastry, that's the only reason I was going to use that... The recipe uses frozen puff pastry sheets, cut into strips which are then laid out in a long line, pressed together at the seams so it's one long piece, then the filling is put onto it and the dough is pinched shut around it. Looking at the photos it doesn't seem like the layers are really even visible... It may have been just the easiest thing to do since the recipe's creator was using store bought dough.

Do you think gluten-free pie crust dough would work? I might be able to get that pre-made frozen which would make life so much easier! Thanks for all the advice, I really appreciate the information and help.

    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
    • tTG-IgA Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin A Self The enzyme TTG deamidates gliadin (a broken-down component of gluten). In reaction to the presence of TTG, the antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not 100% specific: there are other causes of a positive test, including diabetes, heart failure, Crohn’s and others. Also, people who have celiac disease can get a negative result with this test. Machine-read. tTG-IgG Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin G Self In reaction to TTG, IgG is produced. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from 3-6 months, sometimes up to a year, preceding test.   Valuable in diagnosing Celiac in patients with selective IgA deficiency. DGP-IgG   Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin G   Newer, excellent test that detects an immune response to a very specific fragment of the gluten molecule (gliadin peptide).   If both DGP are high, celiac disease almost certain. Accurate for detecting gut damage of celiac disease, so good it is likely to make endoscopy redundant. Does not replace the IgG-gliadin test. DGP-IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin A   (ELISA) measures antibodies directed against deamidated Gliadin peptides (DGP) in human serum or plasma. AGA-IgG Anti-Gliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin G Anti-self (Older gliadin test.) The antibody immunoglobulin G (IgG) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from three to six months, sometimes up to a year, preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction AGA-IgA Antigliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin A Anti-self The antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction Total IgA Immunoglobulin A Self The celiac blood test panel includes the total serum IgA test because some people (3%) are IgA-deficient. If you have a very low total serum IgA, that can invalidate the three blood tests that rely on your IgA levels. People with celiac disease suffer from low total IgA levels about 10 to 15 times more frequently than people in the general population. EMA IgA Anti-endomysial antibody IgA Self EMA stands for antiendomysial antibodies, which are antibodies produced by the body that attack the body's own tissue. When the EMA-IgA is positive, the patient almost certainly has celiac disease. However, the test also can produce false negative results in patients with celiac disease but only partial villous atrophy.   Highly specific (>95%), and >90% sensitive. The EMA antibodies correlate to degree of villous atrophy. Observer-dependent.
