I am so exited to share this recipe with all of you that
can’t or won’t eat gluten! yes you can have it! A delicious sugar
cookies, that can be enjoyed by not only you, but everyone around!
They will never know they are gluten free! This is the recipe, and
I haven’t changed a thing beside opting for butter instead of
Crisco, and they turn beautifully! Here is the recipe found on Food.com.
I thought about sharing this quickly, as you might want to have
this recipe on hand for the holidays coming up, if you’re like
us… we always prepare sugar cookies for Halloween and Christmas,
that we decorate and share with friends and neighbors.
This year, my friend, who has recently been diagnosed with celiac disease,
myself and our kids, did an Halloween workshop where we decorated
cookies and made some homemade decorations! It was a lot of fun,
and we were very happy that this recipe turned so well, so we could
all enjoy it! Of course, we let the kids, who can happily eat
anything, go wild with their decoration…
If you want to decorate your cookies, and keep them gluten free,use a simple icing made of icing sugar (which is just sugar and
cornstarch) and water. Food coloring should not contain gluten (I
use Wilton’s), so you can color your icing. And know that I haven’t search for all
the candies, but Jelly Belly do not contain gluten. Those can be used for
fun decors! Of course, they are delicious on their own too…
Hope you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as we did! Here is a few shots of
our crazy decoration. For ideas, you can visit my Halloween board
