Bacon Banana Pastry Cups (Gluten Free)

by LCCotter on August 7, 2013

First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who participated and shared Amanda’s FEED10 Fundraising Bake Sale. She raised almost $500. Enough to feed 3000 lunches. That is AWESOME! And I am so glad Healthy bites could be part of it. Go check out where you can donate and her discount for the #run10feed10 Race here.

Second of all, I did it. I actually turned on the oven last night to bake even though it was 104F outside and all I wanted to do was jump in a cold pool!

But…

It WAS SO WORTH IT! And I will be baking more this weekend, for sure. You see, Pillsbury just came out with a new line of gluten free dough.

NEW Pillsbury Gluten Free Dough is available in three varieties, found in convenient tubs in the refrigerated aisle:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
•    14.3 oz. tub for easy storage
•    Makes approximately 16 2” cookies
•    Classic Chocolate Chip variety
•    110 calories per serving

Thin Crust Pizza Dough
•    13 oz. tub for easy storage
•    Makes one 10” pizza crust
•    170 calories per serving

Pie/Pastry Dough
•    15.8 oz. tub for easy storage
•    Makes 29” pie crusts
•    250 calories per serving

To say I was excited would be an understatement, in fact, I might have SQUEELED with excitement. I haven’t had pastry dough in YEARS and gosh darn it I wanted some of that flaky goodness.

So when I was asked to create a recipe for their new line, I jumped at the opportunity! .

Of course I to snuck a peek under each lid, trying hard not to eat the cookie dough straight from the tub (fail), and finally decided to go with the pastry dough. I just had to satisfy my pastry craving I had been yearning so long for. The ingredient list is not perfect, but definitely not that bad either. Plus i believe in the 80/20 rule. Although this week it’s been more 70/30. Haha

And with that being said, here’s my gluten free PASTRY recipe. Worth every ounce of sweat standing by the oven. Winking smile

This is awesome because my mother-in-law can’t eat gluten so I could make her these when she comes over!

So far I’ve been an utter failure at gf baking.. this would help immensely!

We have increasingly been buying gluten-free, and this would be a great addition. I am primarily interested in the cookies so I could use them to make ice cream sandwiches.

I’m most excited about trying the gluten free pizza crust dough. I love homemade pizza and would really like to make calzones with Pillsbury’s gluten free pizza dough crust. It would make life so much easier than making the dough from scratch!
