Replacement for phyllo dough?

Hello - I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and am hosting a baby shower soon. I would like to eat what I prepare for the guests and have modified everything, but I am not sure how to replace phyllo cups (such as Athens) for one dish. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or are there GF phyllo cups that I don't know about? Many thanks in advance!

Sarah

Welcome to DC. Whole Foods might have a gluten-free phyllo dough. You could make your own:

Gluten Free Phyllo Dough

Or, perhaps you could share what it is you want to make using phyllo cups. DCers might be able to come up with another delivery device for what it is you're making. I am wondering if rice wrappers could substitute...

I was thinking of trying rice papers as well, so I may experiment with that this weekend. I'm not making anything complicated -- just goat cheese with various herbs mixed in. The cups just need to be cooked in advance. I will also check out Whole Foods. Thanks!

Here's another option. I think these are adorable

gluten free stuff does not taste as good as regular baked goods. i think it's not a good idea to expect everyone to eat gluten free just because you do.

it's also about 20 times more expensive.

Looks like that is the solution.

I have had goat cheeses from Norwegian geitost to soft to Brie-like. I have read that there are hard goat cheeses. Feta could also be made from goat's milk. Hmm, feta might be good in that recipe.

I think I will try making it with quark.

TL, I often see it referenced here. What is Quark? I don't think I have ever seen it in my supermarket.

Quark is a fresh cheese that is a lot like cream cheese. I have seen it at the health food store, but I make my own. It's easy to make.

Not necessarily. There are other products besides flour that make a very tasty dough. Rice and Potato flour come to mind.
