OMG! (I rarely use this expression, but it is the only thing that seems to fit how I feel.) This is not only the best gluten free danish recipe I’ve ever made, but the best one I have ever eaten, even with gluten! My fave is the cream cheese and apple filling in the Tips section below. You have to try this recipe, and be sure to use “superfine” rice flour. I use Authentic Foods brand. I know you will enjoy this recipe!
To say the least, while developing this recipe, I had one of those “Ah hah!” moments. After making my Gluten Free Croissants Recipe, I never wanted to make pastry dough again. I used Julia Child’s croissant recipe which takes a very long time to make. This recipe may be made in one day, actually a couple of hours if you use the cream cheese filling or canned pie filling.
The dough is full of flaky layers. Be sure to out the photos below. It’s my day off; so no fancy photos today. Sorry! If you need step-by-step photos, just let me know, and I will add more.
