Really good short pastry for lactose intolerant people
« on: September 08, 2014, 06:25:54 am »
At last, I have found a pastry my lactose intolerant DH can eat.  I have just tried it once so far and am so very pleased with the result - I thought we would never be able to have decent pastry again!  I would like to thank mymelbournethermomixs blog for this one.


200 g plain flour
tsp salt
30g EVOO
125 cup cold water

Weigh all of the ingredients into the TM bowl and mix for 5 secs, sp 6. 

Set dial to closed lid position and knead 10-20 secs on Interval speed to form dough.

Turn mixture onto Thermomat or lightly floured board and knead lightly to bring together.

Wrap in plastic and place in fridge.

Use when you are ready!!!

I am sure there are other alternatives out there, but this one was so quick and easy.  Pies are on the menu again.

Thanks for this recipe Cuildh.
I also make the EDC short crust pastry and use Nuttelex instead of butter.
This makes it dairyfree.

I also use Nuttelex for many things, although I remain uneasy about using it.  I guess it is all the 'mixed messages' that are out there and over time, some of them have given me cause for concern.  But then again, there are pros and cons to just about everything today, depending upon what information you access so I think everything in moderation is the best answer and use / eat what you are most comfortable with.  I might give the Nuttelex EDC recipe version a go!

Nuttelex was suggested to us by a dietitian when my son was diagnosed with an allergy to dairy protiens.
I have researched it pretty well and think it is ok compared to other products.
I guess as with any fats moderation is the way to go.
Nuttelex has meant that I can make a huge variety of dishes safely available to a teenager who has found food quite difficult.
Any information would be useful Cuildh.
