Gluten-free chiacchiere with double cream –
“Le Chiacchiere” (chats) are a typical treat of carnival in Italy. This recipe is easy with just a few ingredients and you can fry or bake them.
I used the gluten-free flour “Revolution” and it’s really good, very flexible, easy to work and with a good flavor.
Preparation time 30 minutes
Ingredients for about 25-30 “Chiacchiere”:
200 g of gluten-free flour (I used the Revolution flour)
125 ml of double cream
grated zest of 1 lemon or 1 orange
2 tablespoons of sugar flavored with vanilla
1 tablespoon of rum
a pinch of salt
icing sugar to decorate
seed oil for frying
(*) store the white sugar in a jar containing a vanilla bean
Put together flour, cream, sugar, rum, lemon zest, salt and knead.
Roll out the dough very thin and cut into rectangles with a serrated wheel, then cut each rectangle in the middle.
Fry in abundant seed oil, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes (they are ready when are golden on both sides); just cooked transfer them to a plate covered with absorbent paper.
Sprinkle with icing sugar when they are cold.
You can also bake them at 180°C for 20 minutes.
