Spelt Pastry - Using Ghee instead of butter?

July 9, 2011 - 9:31pm -- bread10


I would like to make pastry but will have to make a few 'twists' in the recipe.

I am unable to have modern wheat but can have spelt and khorasan. I am also unable to have butter, butter substitutes or margarine, but can have Ghee (clarified butter).


Anyway I was thinking of making the pastry for pies and vegetable triangles using spelt flour and was wondering whether I could substitute ghee instead of butter in the recipe?


If so do I substitute 1:1 or how much?
