If I use freshly ground spelt, would I need to add more flour? Can't wait to try this recipe!!

No, you won't. But as with all cup measurements each cupful is never the same so you may have to adjust the ratio of the flour/water to get the correct dough texture.

This looks really good, I'll have to try it. I don't know much about spelt, does it have gluten in it? My son can't have gluten or dairy. If it does, I'll try to alter the recipe to be gluten free.

Yes, spelt has gluten. This is not a gluten free recipe; besides the spelt it has regular wheat flour in the filling.

Could I use frozen ingredients in place of fresh and would it be the same amount?
