Flavour OK but this isn't puff pastry
I made some filled pastries. The flavour was OK, but the pastry didn't puff. I bought this as part of a series of experiments with gluten-free baked goods/ingredients, and I have to say: I might buy it again for emergency pastry needs, since it tasted OK, but if it's advertised as puff pastry, it ought to puff up in the oven.
I've been coeliac for years. The best you can get.
Take into consideration how warm your KITCHEN is. If it is cool follow the 5 minute rest from fridge instruction. If your kitchen is warm only leave for 3 mins. If you are a gluten free baker you will know how difficult it is to do and to get anywhere close to gluten containing baking results. If you aren't having to bake gluten free, (in Covid-19 panic buying some of you are scooping up anything you can buy and expecting it to be as good as gluten containing products), please stop and think before posting negatively because manufacturers will remove these products from production, some of us have severely restricted diets and need these products! Please shop and review responsibly.
did the job and acceptable
most of the family enjoyed it, lets face it GF is never going to be as good as the real thing but this is far better than others I've tried including made from scratch. Don't tried and compare with real puff pastry as it didn't 'puff' for us, I used to top a pie and it needed 5-10 longer than packet said. Have just added it to the basket for the 2nd week.
I love it. The only puff pastry that doesn't give me an allergic reaction. It's lighter than normal puff pastry, more like a cross between puff and filo pastry. I've tried it for sweet and savoury dishes and it didn't disappoint.
Not worth it
Absolute rubbish. Doesn’t puff up at all even when following directions on the box. For those saying it’s not going to behave the same as pastry containing gluten I’m well aware of that but the box clearly shows nicely puffed pastry. Used several times to make gluten free sausage rolls for my celiac partner and no matter what combination of oven temp and time I use it goes dark brown and hard. Won’t be buying again.
Just used this for a pie and it was terrible. Did not rise at all. Flat and hard and ruined the pie. Avoid.
Avoid this product
Horrible product, does not “puff”. Hard and thin after baking. Tasted terrible as well
Don't Bother - horrid
Horrid - followed instructions and cooked at the min temp - you could build a house with it.
Great gluten free pastry and easy to use.
Both my mum and I have used this pastry for making gluten free pies and sausage rolls. It was very tasty and easy to use. It saves the effort of making gluten free pastry, especially when preparing food for hosting guests and looking for an easier option. I'm not sure why there is an expectation for this pastry to behave the same way as pastry made with wheat / gluten by other reviewers as it obviously isn't going to. Some of the best gluten free pastry I've had as a celiac.
waste of money
I followed the instructions on the packet and they were terrible they didn't rise at all I had to throw the whole lot out, very disappointing as it was bought for a Christmas eve buffet which included gluten free guests
