Homemade Gluten-Free Cookies

12 posts in this topic

I'm not a very good "cook," but I've always enjoyed baking.

After my disastrous attempt at gluten-free muffins last week, I decided to try some cookies this week. I bought a couple of gluten-free baking cookbooks (one of which was specifically for cookies) and bought some new types of flour.

My first attempt was Girl Scout Samoa Cookies and I have to admit, they are very tasty! I wish I had done a few things differently on the actual assembly of the cookies, but the taste is still very good! I got these out of "The Ultimate Gluten-Free Cookie Book" by Roben Ryberg.

Do you have a favorite homemade cookie that you've been very successful making? Any cookbooks (baking) that are particularly good?

I was going to suggest the book you mentioned. I've had pretty good luck with the recipes I've tried from there. More often than not when I make cookies, I use my old gluteny favorite recipes and just use Tom Sawyer flour in place of the AP flour. I have had wonderful success with that, no other adjustments necessary. But the Tom Sawyer flour is very expensive so sometimes I use the Ryberg book so I can use brown rice or sorghum flour instead.

I just started a blog for easy gluten free recipes and 1 of my first posts was a 3 ingredient super yummy peanut butter cookie recipe.

1 cup sugar

1 cup natural peanut butter

1 egg

Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes.

I have made these for years long before I ever knew anything about gluten and have always gotten numerous compliments.

Hope that helps!

They're one of my favorites, too, although I rarely bake cookies...as if I need them sitting around here to munch on. :blink:

My recipe for this includes 1 tsp vanilla, which I think is a nice addition. I learned it when I worked for a cookie stamp manufacturing company 14 years ago. They have 5 gluten-free recipes (some I've never tried): http://www.cookiestamp.com/recipes_table#MintsCandies this link takes you to the mint and candies recipes which should be gluten-free (double check, though, cause I just skimmed them). The cream cheese candy is really good - I made it with the chocolate variation. The Unbelievable PNB recipe is the one above. PLEASE NOTE: Their rice flour cookies call for using regular all-purpose flour and are not gluten-free. Technically, you don't have to use cookie stamps to make the recipes, but they're fun to use if you're taking the cookies to a get together or just to brighten up your day.

I'm hoping that I can just sub better batter flour or King Arthur or Tom Sawyer flour for all my holiday cookie baking. Time will tell. Eventually, I'll make some cookies. Just haven't tried it yet.

This was a fav at our house pre-gluten-free. I use 1/2 cup brown & 1/2 white sugar, tsp vanilla and chocolate chips.

Has anyone tried substituting almond butter (or the like) in any cookies? Does it change anything?

I have a friend who told me she subs almond or sunflower butter in the same amounts as the PB. I haven't tried it.

I made these for the first time yesterday. They are pretty darn good and so very easy! Can't beat good AND easy. :)

Lemon Cookies - Gluten-free Casein-free

Makes 20 cookies

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon Gluten-free Casein-free Vanilla or lemon extract

1 cup soy flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoon water

Mix together the oil and sugar. Blend in the flavorings. Sift together the dry ingredients three times (to add volume to the flour). Add these to the oil/sugar mixtures. Add water and mix again. Form the dough into a roll. Chill for 1 to 2 hours. Cut into as thin of slices as possible and bake on a well greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Hey! Didn't you just post this somewhere else? You didn't include my great suggestions! :lol:

Have you tried it with any different flours?

LOL! Yep, it was too good not to repost here in the cookies section. I haven't tried any other flours. I don't think it would work with other flours. I have a cookbook that uses soy flour for gluten free recipes. With soy flour, you don't have to use and of the xan. or guar gums. This makes it easy and cheap and yummy!

Here is another one.

Snickerdoodles!

1 cup butter

1 1/2 c sugar

2 eggs

2 cups + 2 T sorghum flour

1/4 cup + 2 T soy flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients together and set aside. Cream butter, cream in sugar until smooth. Add eggs, beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredients, mix well. Chill. Mix 2 T sugar with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Roll dough into small balls, roll in cinnamon/sugar mix, bake at 400

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
