fruit papillotes just aren't going to cut it...i need something resembling a cake/cookie/pastry.
i've been taking a french pastry class, and bringing my products in to share with my co-workers....except for one gluten-dairy-egg-intolerant fellow. he felt so left out that he gave me his "gluten-free desserts" cookbook to look through and see if i could work anything out for him. of course, ALL the recipes use eggs.
first...does anybody have any delicious tricks that they've worked with nut pastes, nut flours, or chocolates? (he can have sugar and non-dairy choc) i'd prefer to go to the whole-foods minimally-processed route if i can, just for my own sensibilities, but, i'm beginning to think that's not an option.
second...speaking of non-whole foods, has anyone had success using butter substitutes or egg substitutes with recipes already modified to use GF flours?
third---do you have a delicious gluten-lactose-egg-free pastry recipe that you want to share?
will report back after i try to make something!
thanks so much!
