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!

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.
