Paleo Puff Pastry
50g of ice
100g of butter, frozen in cubes
100g of Ottos Cassava Flour
1tsp of xanthan gum
3 tablespoon of cold water
This recipe comes from www.forkingfoodies.com.au I have increased the water to 3 tablespoons. She has some photos on her page if you are struggling with these instructions! ?
You will need a Thermomix or a strong food processor.
The day before you want to bake, freeze water in zip lock. Freeze butter cubes in another zip lock bag.
The day you are ready to bake, place ice in Thermomix (blender) add butter, flour, xanthan gum and salt. Mix on high speed for I minute until resembles bread crumbs. While on medium speed add the 3 tablespoon of water still it resembles dry scrambles eggs.
Place a sheet of baking paper on the bench and tip pastry in the middle of the baking paper. Use the baking paper and fold the left and right hand side and squash the dough. Unwrap and do the same process with the top and bottom of the baking paper. Work quickly as you want to keep the pastry as cold as possible. Continue to squash the dough until it forms a solid dough in the shape of a square. Place dough in the fridge for half an hour. Take dough out of fridge, get a clean sheet of baking paper and place on bench, sprinkle with flour, place dough on top and sprinkle with more flour. Roll flour in a long rectangle, don't worry if the dough cracks and breaks on the side, be patient. Once it's in a long rectangle fold the bottom up one third of the dough up and then fold the top third down. Then roll out the pastry again, pushing the sides in as you go. Once in a rectangle fold into thirds again. Repeat this process up to six times. Place in fridge for half an hour or until you are ready to cook.
