      1. Thank you!! The additional link is very helpful. I think I will still make my own dough, I like to use as little preservatives in my cooking as possible. These look amazing!

    1. Melinda – If you do try this – please let us know how it turns out! You can always use butter or margarine as well.

      1. I tried this with coconut oil today with good results. The dough was very hard upon removal from the refrigerator and the dough was a little crumbly, but if you don’t mind a rustic look to your pastries, they turned out nicely!

        1. Meredith – Thanks so much for sharing your adjustments. Coconut oil would be a great sub for the dairy free butter! I have made these quite a few time for my family, and I did find that I had to let the dough sit for a few minutes after removing from refrigerator to be able to roll out.
