Ingredients

  • Bowl 1:

  • 1

    cup white rice flour

  • 1/2

    cup brown rice flour

  • 1

    cup tapioca flour

  • 1/2

    cup sweet sorghum flour

  • 1/4

    cup potato starch

  • 1 1/2

    tsp xanthan gum

  • 1

    tsp sea salt

  • keep on the side:

  • 2

    sticks of cold butter

  • Bowl 2:

  • 1

    tbsp sugar

  • 4

    tsp yeast

  • 1/4

    cup warm water

  • Bowl 3:

  • 2

    large egg yolks (keep egg whites for egg wash)

  • 1/2

    cup evaporated milk

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 1/4

    cup reserved white rice flour (just use it as you need it, don't use it all at once!)

Directions

Mix together ingredients from bowl one. Set aside. In bowl 2, combine sugar and yeast, then add warm water; set aside and allow to proof (should become foamy on top), for about 10 minutes. Keep on the side: 2 sticks of cold butter Combine all ingredients in third bowl, set aside. Now combine the ingredients from the third bowl into the large first bowl (with the flours!). Don't add yeast yet! Cut up the cold butter into cubes (basically follow the lines on the butter wrapper, then cut them in half, after that so they're in half tablespoon amounts). Wash your hands, then start adding the butter in, a little at a time. Work the dough with your hands until you've added all the butter. It's ok if there are lumps of butter still. Now slowly pour in the yeast. Continue working the dough with your hands. Wash your hands. Now shape the dough into a ball, sprinkle the outside of the ball of dough with rice flour, but not all of the reserved rice flour (just so the surface is lightly coated). Divide the dough in half. Work with half the dough at a time. Set the other half aside and cover with a clean cloth. Roll the dough into a rectangle, then use a pizza cutter or knife to even out all the edges so it's a clean rectangle. Now you're going to cut out and shape croissants with a knife (like the tutorial) or a pizza cutter. Note: Don't pull the croissants, just roll them. Gluten-free dough isn't as elastic!!!!!! Follow this tutorial for how to cut croissants--but don't pull the dough like she does :): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=221rAwr0CWk&feature=related You'll end up with 14 croissants. Bake them in a preheated 350 degree oven for 14-16 minutes.
