Default Anyone have a pastry recipe?

I was just wondering if anyone had a low carb pastry recipe or something like it? I'l like to put a crust on top of some of the slow cooked stews I make.

Maybe almond flour & baking powder rubbed through with butter and a little water? I'll try this out if no-one has tried it, but almond flour isn't that cheap so I thought I'd ask before trying it out.

Hi Oz Dave

I made tart shells using almond flour, butter, baking powder and an egg. You'll need a beaten egg to bind it. Good luck!

Hmmm thinking here. What about making a cauliflower pizza crust (see recipe) and place that on top of your slow cooked stew once it's cooked?

Hi DLC

Thanks for the tip. One thing I do keep in large supply is eggs. Its only $4 for a dozen barn laid here (I avoid cage eggs, even tho they are cheaper).

I am off to the supermarket and then THE KITCHEN! (Which I use a lot more than used to.)

cheers
d.

Did you try and search the recipe forum for one? That's been my 'go-to' lately for inspiration.

Hi Mary

I have had a look. Some recipes are obviously NOT low carb tho, so one must be careful. They might be low carb as in "10% less than standard pastry"!

Thanks
d.

I think Judy-in-France's Almond Cheese Muffin might work. The batch I made was rich and crumbly. I think she used parmesan, I used pecorino romano. It all should be about the same. Search for Almond Cheese Muffin and you should find the recipe.

I have one muffin left in the freezer, when I eat that I am going to try a crust or shell with the recipe.

Gizmo's biscuits might work, although it wouldn't be quite like a crust per se, but you could roll them out as thin as possible.

Pastries are my favourite as with most people. Sometimes I stop in front of a counter and just stare at them so I can feel sorry for myself. oi.

Barbara I have become a firm fan of Judy's muffins. I bake them now all the time. Its my cake, bread, snack and many more. I tried it this morning with my newly acquired SF berry jam. Jam 5g carb per 20 gr serving.

Dave you asked the right question, I wish there was the perfect solution.

A little extra work, but if you can make your stew in an ovenproof pan, put a layer of cauli-mash (there are several in the recipes forum) and brown the top, a la Shepherd's pie, it is pretty satisfying!

I just saw this post today and I'm looking forward to trying it. It's not zero carb, but lower is better...
