Rainy days are for making pastry, mostly so that your tea will have something to accompany it. Yes, that is how I’m justifying these. Flaky, buttery and AIP compliant! You wont feel like you’re missing out on anything.
- 1 1/2 cup of cassava flour (plus more for dusting)
- 2 tbsp honey (optional)
- 1 Tbsp beef gelatin
- 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt
- 1/2 cup palm shortening
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup Jam/filling of your choice.
For the frosting, I made coconut mana. You can find that process here.
Preheat oven to 425. Pulse cassava, honey, gelatin, salt and oil in a food processor, bledner or by hand. Add in the water until your dough forms.
Roll out onto a floured surface. You may have to work the dough a little bit, it is very forgiving. Cut desired shapes and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Fill, and top. Seal the sides with your fingers. You can leave them like that, or use a fork to line the edges. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown!
Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then they’re frostable. Heat up a little coconut mana and drizzle it over the pastry.
These are SO yummy, and wont last long. But if you find yourself having to store them, place them in a container you can seal, and keep in the fridge.
