    Default Coeliac - pastry recipe?

    Help!

    I'm trying to find family friendly staple recipes for a coeliac child. And whilst I have worked out sone things I just can NOT get a nice pastry mix. It either turns out too crumbly, or like a weird mix between a biscuit base and a pastry base.

    Has anyone had success making gluten free pastry that can share their recipe?

    Thankyou!

    I suck at it too, so I either buy it frozen, or use the Orgran one. We rarely use pastry though, so the cost doesn't become huge.

    I buy it frozen when cooking for Dad.

    I can easily make pastry but choose not too.

    Yeah the Orgran packet mix. Otherwise we are lucky to have an organic shop that specialises is particular dietary requirements like gluten free, dairy free, vegan, etc so I get the gf pastry sheets there. We only really have pastry at Christmas, and only small amounts, but on a regular basis it would get expensive. I think it was $9.50 for a 2 pack.

    Try the book Wheat free world, you can buy it from the Coeliac Society. I have found it helpful for my husbands Coeliac Disease. He was a bread and pastry addict until three years ago. I have been experimenting with recipes http://recipesforcoeliacs.blogspot.com.au/ no pastry yet but I will eventually!
