Use this regularly for making Chicken Pies, Apple Tarts and Mince Pies at Christmas. It is delicious and great being able to have such beautiful pastry again since being diagnosed as coeliac.
Excellent I always make my gluten free sausage rol
Excellent I always make my gluten free sausage rolls with this. Quick and easy.
Don’t bother yourself
I’ve tried to use this several times in different recipes and used different methods. It simply does not puff at all.
Didn't puff but was still ok
I couldn't get it to puff- but it wasn't too bad. As others have said it's like a thick filo pastry- edible and tasty just not the puff I'd been hoping for.
Great pastry - made a really crispy tart
Finding gluten and dairy free pastry is fantastic. Please don't listen to the reviewers who are not vegan/coeliacs - they are comparing this pastry to a wheat/buttery pastry which it will never match. They should not give a bad review because they bought the wrong product.
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.
