Schar Gluten-Free Puff Pastry Dough is exactly what you’ve been looking for. Gluten-free puff pastry dough has been incredibly difficult to find, and it’s always contained dairy – something I can’t have. But Schar puff pastry dough is dairy-free and egg-free, and only contains soy as an allergen! As always, check to make sure that this Schar product matches your unique nutritional needs.
Schar Gluten Free Puff Pastry Dough
I was so excited to finally get my hands on some, thanks to our Anniversary sponsor Schar! Unfortunately, we still don’t have it here it Arizona, but plenty of readers have spotted it in their frozen foods section across the USA!
However, being a celiac forEVER (okay, 10 years) I didn’t even know what to make with puff pastry dough. I hadn’t used gluten-free puff pastry dough since being diagnosed. What was I going to make with it? Of course I went to Pinterest and YouTube to explore. I found this Tasty video and decided to experiment with a few on Schar’s new puff pastry dough.
It’s pretty easy to make these elaborate looking pastries – honestly! Now, gluten-free puff pastry dough is a little more difficult to work with (of course everything is because it doesn’t have gluten’s elasticity), but with a little bowl of water and some patience, you can really nail gluten-free puff pastry recipes! Just make sure you defrost the puff pastry dough for at least 3 hours. Unroll it slowly and carefully and mend any cracks with a little bit of water and your finger. Then, cut the dough using a pizza cutter or knife into squares or the shapes you need for each pastry. Carefully fold the dough, working out any tears with a little water and your finger. Add on the toppings and fillings before you put into the pre-heated oven. Make sure to follow the instructions for baking on the box! Pinwheels like these take a shorter amount of time than more intricate designs – so don’t burn them!
The pinwheel worked best with the puff pastry dough – and really allowed the puffiness in the wheels to shine! It also baked up the best and avoided any soggy bottom that you could get with the more elaborate use of the dough. I used Rigoni di Asiago Nocciolata Dairy Free Organic Hazelnut Spread and organic jam for the fillings. Of course, everything puff pastry is way better with organic powdered sugar on top!
This gluten free puff pastry dough is a hit in our house, but we’ve got to ration it until Schar puff pastry dough reaches Phoenix! Have you seen it in your neck of the woods?
I’m so thankful to Schar for their sponsorship of Celiac and the Beast! Don’t forget to enter our huge anniversary giveaway!
