Valentine’s Day Tiramisu–GF Ladyfingers for the Tiramisu

I’m serving my husband and family Tiramisu for Valentine’s Day dessert.  We used to go to an Italian restaurant and share a serving of this rich, delicious dessert while we were courting.  Now that we are gluten-free we haven’t had tiramisu in quite a long time.  Since tiramisu requires the use of ladyfingers, a cookie […]

Moulded Sugar Cookies for Valentine’s Day

The kids will need something special for their lunches the day their school celebrates Valentine’s Day.  For Christmas, a friend gave me a Wilton baking tray for moulded heart sugar cookies.  This is just the excuse I need to try something new.  I have never made moulded cookies before, but I’ve always wanted to try […]

Date Nut Bars–Shortbread Cookies

This is one of those recipes that has been around for many years.  I think my mother made these for lunchbox treats in the 70’s.  When I was planning for this week, I just couldn’t face another sweet cookie to make for the kids lunches.  I dug this recipe out from my old family favorites […]

Gingerbread Stars are a Holiday Favorite!

This is a fun and family-friendly recipe to make for the holidays.  As a gluten-free baker I am always on the lookout for easy recipes that use gluten-free items from the grocery store.  Did you know that most (if not all) Jell-O products are gluten-free?  I think if we want the convenience of being able […]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Spritz Cookies

These must be the best and the fanciest peanut butter cookies anywhere.  I was looking for a way to add peanut butter cookies to my holiday trays, but I wanted something fancier than the usual cross-hatch variety.  Plus, I still wanted to add jelly!  I already had thumbprint cookies so that wasn’t an option.  My […]

Praline Rounds–A Scrumptious Holiday Cookie!

They say you can take the girl out of the South but you can’t take the South out of the girl!  So true!  I love most thing Southern, especially the foods.  These cookies are just great!  Pecans, brown sugar, butter and lots of love.  Plus, they are a slice and bake recipe so you can […]

Black and White Thumbprint Cookies

There must be hundreds of recipes for thumbprint cookies.  I think I have about ten recipes that I have made over the years.  Here is a new one.  I tried it because it uses oats, and I think that makes it healthier.  It also uses buttercream icing for the filling and I seem to always […]

Mocha Bites for the Holiday Trays

This mocha flavored small cookie is just the right thing to add to a holiday tray.  It is rich in flavor, but not too sweet.  Anyone who cherishes his or her mid-afternoon cup of coffee will be sure to enjoy this treat.  This recipe makes 18-20 small cookies.  Enough that you can add a couple […]

Cookie Butter, White Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookies

The title says it all!  These cookies are full of good things and good flavors.  They make a limited number which is good for me as I only put 2-3 on each holiday tray that I make.  These cookies are big and soft and chewy! Yum! They also freeze well which is why I can […]

Thoughts on Holiday Gluten-Free Baking

Well, we got through Thanksgiving, and now my plans are turning towards what I’ll be baking for the rest of the holidays.  There are dinners, parties and lots of get-togethers.  If you are in the same boat–do not despair.  I have my methods! If you are new to gluten-free baking, I strongly advise that you […]
