Here's an easy recipe for yum gluten free and egg free canapes that I came up with before new year's.
Make pastry using a good gluten free flour. I used Dove's Farm plain flour blend and followed the recipe on the bag for basic pastry.
If you use the quantity recommended on the recipe you'll have enough pastry to make at least 24 canapes. (I used half of the pastry to make mince pies.)
Roll out the pastry onto greaseproof paper dusted with more flour (or flatten with your palms, I found this to be most effective. I also dusted with rice flour as it is less expensive) and use a sharp knife to cut the pastry into triangles.
I experimented with a variety of shapes and sizes. Triangles, cooked in a cake tray so the edges were curled up worked best.
Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes.
Remove from the oven and add cheese, tomatoes (use sun dried toms if you can't find oven roasted), seasoning and herbs (I used chives and oregano) and return to the oven for a further 5-7 minutes.
The toppings will soften the pastry after a few hours so try to serve and consume straight away if possible!
