Puff Pastry Dough

Recipe Details:

This recipe originally came from a desire to make English sausage rolls. You need a good puffed pastry to make it work. In all my research and hunting I've yet to find a premade gluten free, diary free puff pastry. So I decided to try it for myself. While this doesn't have all the flakiness associated with normal puff pastry, it's close enough. It can be used for sausage rolls, hand pies, pin wheels and many more. Be warned that this is not a quick process. It takes six to eight hours, mostly chilling in the refrigerator, so I suggest that you make the pastry portion of your recipe the day prior to the rest of the recipe.
