I had the chance to try & get the best out of my pastry making skills over the weekend when it comes to these home made apple pies or any other savoury pie filling you like (e.g. chicken or potato pie).
- 2-4 cups of flour
- A few tablespoons of rice milk/water
- 1/3 cup of avocado oil
- Some sprinkles of salt and sugar
- And any filling you like to fill it inside & cover up the pastry dough before baking
All you have to do is pour 1/3 cup of avocado into a bowl followed by some pinches of salt & sugar before adding 2 cups of plain flour, as well as few tablespoons of rice milk or water for a start. Then mix it up using your hands or through a food processing machine for a few minutes while adding a few more tablespoons of rice/milk at a time, so they can end up sticking together (not too sticky!) & finish it off onto a rectangle or disk shape layout on your pastry dough.
After that, cover the dough with a medium to large freezer bag nice & tight with a bowl into the refrigerator for at least an hour. Once the dough has been rested, get your rolling pin out & roll it out to the desired thickness & shape you want, then leave it out onto the sausage roll maker machine nice & flat by adding your favourite filling before closing the pastry nice & tight ahead of the cooking process.
It will take 30 minutes to get the job done where you will have to flip one side at the halfway mark (15 min). Once it’s been cooked & also cooled down for a few minutes, the natural avocado oil pastry got there will be crispy & golden on the outside while you can see the awesome saucy filling on the inside – How good!!
For the best results of making such homemade pastry, I would make two pastry doughs to cover both sides well with the filling in between since there’s no puff pastry sheets that is margarine-free from the supermarket freezer shelves.
It can be tricky to find a dairy & egg free equivalent of these ready-made frozen pastry sheets that doesn’t require a lot of work, especially when some may contain milk as they’re all processed within the one equipment from the factory.
However, making them at home is a better, cheaper & safer option – so you can eat it naturally & also healthier too! See it for yourself with the avocado oil pastry recipe that is egg & dairy free to make at home.
