People who get diagnosed with celiac disease, usually have problems making a good dough for pastry, because it differs from gluten one. As for anything in life, experience and practice are always welcomed. I can not guarantee that you will get perfect rolls from the first try, especially if you don’t have previous experience, but I am sure that if you follow the instructions you are on a good way to make really good gluten-free rolls.
I learned this recipe from my mom, and I am making it as she told me, I didn’t change anything because it is perfect. New Schär Mix B flour is perfect for making the pastry, you will see. The most important thing when you are making dough is to have a good flour and to be very patient because the dough needs time. Also, the structure of the dough is very important. It must be soft but not sticking if you want the final product to be fluffy and soft.
This is a perfect base for other pastry recipes, just be creative with flavors and shapes.
- 500ml of lukewarm water
- 1 tbsp dry yeast

- Put a lukewarm water, sugar, yeast and 1 teaspoon of flour in the bowl, mix them all and leave the yeast to get activated. After that, add some salt, flour, oil and mix well again. Leave the dough to grow. After one hour, roll the dough into the circle, cut into triangles, and place a piece of salami, cheese or any other fill on the broad side, and roll until you get the shape of a croissant. Grease the rolls with egg yolk and leave for about an hour in a warm place to grow, then bake for about 25 minutes at 220ºC.
