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

    • So, LST my celiac sibling thinks I should see a naturopath to get additional food sensitivity tests. I think this is swell, but expensive for me. He had a panel done and was reacting to some foods he ate the most of. I have reached out to a local allergist and they do food testing but do not accept my insurance. I was going to make some more calls tomorrow. I actually do have mild reactive airway disease too which seems to go hand-in-hand with the allergists. I honestly had no idea, but makes since. What type of tests have folks had? I know I am not allergic to most foods as of November. My former GI doc ran a basic panel then but it seemed short. Has anyone had any luck with these? I read there is a difference between IGE and IGG tests. Anyone get a doc to order them and insurance to cover? I may end up having to save up for awhile to have this done with a naturopath. But I was off of payroll recently with all of this and the idea of waiting for a couple of more months to find out what other foods may be trigging me really sucks. I am off of dairy and soy, suspicious of lettuce and shrimp.
    • How about reaching out to your local celiac disease support group? http://www.houstonceliacs.org
    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.
