GF Christmas + Favorites
For close to a year- I have been, more-or-less, gluten free. Strange symptoms caused by who knows what pointed me to at least giving it a try. When B makes pizza, I tell myself it's just psychosomatic, and give in, but generally regret it. For whatever reason, eating gluten makes me achy, dumb and stinky. So I don't, mostly. And I feel (and smell) a lot better for it.
But I love to bake, and it's Christmas. And that is a real problem.
I tried to make Russian Tea Cakes using g-f Bisquick. Super fail.
But all is not lost... I am focusing on the can-haves, and so here is a quick list for myself and anyone in the same boat.
Flourless Peanutbutter Cookies
Chocolate Pistachio Cookies
Tried and true flour-y friends:
Chocolate Espresso Snowcaps
Shortbread... OK, can't find the recipe I used last year, will keep searching, though. It was really good. But maybe it's one of those things that's hard to screw up?
Saltine Toffee Bars
Now, where to find the time to make them!
