Those pillsbury sugar cookies with the holiday pictures in the middle! With the super soft middle inside and deliciousness!!! I would always eat the white and then have the perfectly cut out picture and then eat it. I love and miss these! With halloween coming up so many people have been eating these at my school and i remembered how i used to be obsessed with them!! I wish i could make a gluten free version. I contemplated making sugar cookies and putting a little orange food dye and a little green to try to mimic a pumpkin but im sure it wouldt compare!

I was at Target last night browsing the grocery section. I was getting bananas and decided to keep looking around to see if I could find other gluten free foods. I did find gluten free chocolate chip cookie mix! But then I also saw the full-of-gluten spice cake mix, which I love this time of year! I was sad because I can't eat it anymore! :(

I think we all have those foods that you're like 'mmmm, want some... oh wait, i can't eat that anymore :angry::( '

If you could find a recipe for a gluten-free rolled sugar cookie dough, you could make one batch colored and one white and use a shaped cookie cutter to cut out the middles in both and then pop the colored one in the cut out spot in the white one.

Even if you tried to replicate it with a gluten dough it would not be exactly the same, esp. since Pillsbury probably has some secret/special flavor/dough enhancers that we can't purchase. But you can possibly still enjoy the holiday spirit of it! Maybe a really good brand of vanilla will help. It's been since I was a kid that I last ate one but my memory is of a certain strong sweet vanilla flavor.

I've never had those cookies, but can empathize in remembering. I can SO taste real homemade chocolate chip cookies that I spent years and years making. I don't bake them anymore cause no recipe or commercially baked cookie has been able to recreate that special taste.

I love spice cake too :) There are gluten-free spice cake mixes (Gluten Free Pantry, Namaste) but I avoid them due to the tapioca.

What I do is add a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves, and a quarter teaspoon of ground nutmeg to a Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix and make as directed. Frost with buttercream or caramel frosting--delicious!

Ooo, I'm going to have to try this soon! B)

Oh I remember. I miss a lot but try not to think of it. It makes it harder for me because I have to avoid all grains, so even the gluten-free substitutes are off limits. If anyone has good grain-free recipes please let me know. I have some but all are from almond flour. I'm always on the lookout.

I did it! Yesterday I made sugar cookie dough, and seperated it into uneven 3rds. then i died one part of the dough orange, the other green and left the rest white. When I went to bake it i flatted out the cookie part and put a little blob of orange and green then baked it, and they now have little pumpkins in the middle. I was so happy!

And for grain free things, i dont know much but the first thing i thought of was finding the raw recipes. There are a lot of raw foodists and you can find recipes online for things and most have no grain at all. Heres an example and the things on this website look pretty good to me! http://www.therawdessert.com/

If you can eat peanuts, these are good: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies (scroll down for recipe). Last Christmas I made these with chocolate chips (maybe 1/2 cup? I can't remember) and they were a big hit. If you can't eat peanuts I don't see why they wouldn't work with other nut butters.

If you haven't tried this recipe, I advise you to reconsider: 36-hour chocolate chip cookies. I need to make another batch of them. They were easy and SO good: buttery, just crispy enough, lots of vanilla and melty chocolate- my gluten-eating husband and coworkers scarfed them down. I think the only change I might make to the recipe is to sub in millet flour in place of amaranth (I'm not a huge fan of the amaranth flavor). I think they were better than the gluten cookies I used to bake.

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
