I was so excited when I saw this product!! Finally Gluten Free Puff pastry?!?! Eeek
So I bought some at our local gluten free specialty bakery. They warned me on purchased, it took some time to get use to when baking but I ignored any warnings – I was sold at gluten free puff pastry.
First reality check is the lovely puff pastry pictures are only suggestions – it’s a frozen log that takes waaaaay longer than the 20 minutes suggested to thaw. I found closer to 40 minutes.
Once ready, set up your area. I put down my parchment, with a sprinkling of Gluten Free Flour. I gently rollout out a square. I hardly modified how it came due to this being the first time.
Ahead of time, I fixed up 2 apples. Threw them in a fry pan with some unsalted butter, a couple of Tablespoons of ground cinnamon, a splash of orange juice, a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a few heaping tablespoons of brown sugar.
I stirred and let them lightly cook for about 15 minutes.
About a tablespoon or so of room temperature cream cheese as a base, on the pastry then put the cooled apple topping on top. Fold over.
I found I was able to make 3 large apple turnovers with one box.
I did use an egg wash to seal the ends and sprinkled sugar on top before placing into a preheated 350F oven.
Cooked for about 40minutes.
Oh. My. God. It tastes light and just like I remember gluten puff pastry to taste like. Delicious.
A nice alternative to making pastry from scratch! It will take getting use to and will be considered a treat but a nice option to have!
