Sugar Cookes

13 posts in this topic

I'm begging for a recipie for that and the icing. I like them soft and chewy too :lol: if that helps.

I thought well, since we had a pie crust thread, why not a sugar cookie one. Tis the season and all that jazz.

Also i don't have a mixer... so something hand stirred friendly?

I wonder if the new mix from Pamela's will have the right texture. I just hope I can find ones that I can use cookie cutters on.

Gluten eaters usually ask for the recipe.

I have been experimenting with adding almond paste for more flavor. Has added that much flavor, but it didn`t change the consistancy.

Just made some Halloween cookies (notice my new av? :rolleyes: )

Here is the recipe that I now use:

1 Cup Butter

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Cup Sugar

2 Eggs

2 Teaspoon Vanilla

3 1/4 Cups gluten-free Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum

Cream butter and sugars well, add eggs and vanilla and mix till well blended. Combine all dry ingredients and add a little at a time until well blended. Refrigerate (overnight if possible). Roll out a little at a time using as little gluten-free flour as possible . . . keep rest of dough in fridge (or work fast). Cut out cookies and transfer to pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely before decorating.

For non-cut-out cookies, I put the dough in a one gallon ziplock back, shape into a tube and refrigerate. After it's cold, remove from ziplock and roll to get a somewhat-even log of dough and then just slice and bake.

I use Annalise Roberts recipe for gluten-free flour mix: 6 cups brown rice flour (extra finely ground), 2 cups potato starch, 1 cup tapioca flour . . . I think the key to a good texture is the fineness of the grind of the rice flour. I use Authentic Foods Brown Rice flour . . . pricey, but I'll never go back to Bob's Red Mill rice flours (I do use their tapioca and potato starch). If I use white rice flour, I use Flying Horse brand from an Asian Market (much finer grind than Bob's Red Mill and cheaper as well).

Icing Recipe:

1 Cup Crisco

2 lbs bag of Powdered Sugar

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

2 Teaspoons Butter Flavoring

Pinch of Salt

Enough Milk (Water works as well) to get to the thickness you like

Combine all.

Notes: If you want the white decorating icing, use Wilton's clear vanilla and clear butter flavoring. You don't have to use the butter flavoring . . . I've got it, I like it, I use it. Wilton's paste colors will let you get the deep colors. This is very forgiving on the quantities . . . I don't measure anything, just eyeball it.

On the bright side, you're already half way there with the number of posts you need before the moderators let you post moderator-review-free.

The down side to that whole arrangement is that we no longer have access to cheap nikes, online pharmecauticals than can cure anything, or fake passports.

Go ahead and post your recipe!! I'm pretty happy with my current one, but I'm always looking to take credit for other people's suggestions improve my product. :D

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
