No big deal, but I just had my first cookie in over a year and a half. Almost all the cookies in my healthfood store contains soy so I haven't been able to eat them, but today I found Pamela's "Simplebites Extreme Chocolate Mini Cookies". I don't know if I can eat chocolate yet. I did OK with some (can't remember the brand) back at the beginning, but since then I had a "gluten free" chocolate bar that I got at a craft fair and didn't do so well. That was almost a year ago. Thought I'd try these and see what happens.

Well, they sure taste good to me. They are mini's, so I have had four of them so far. I was going to try making some of those flourless cookies using cashew butter instead of peanut butter but they don't carry cashew butter at my local shop. Maybe next time I'm in "the big city" I can find some. In the meantime, I feel a small victory having found these Pamela's cookies.

Merry Christmas to me! :D

Woohoo!!! I'm pretty excited about cookies myself these days. I finally went and picked up the Nov/Dec Living Without that has cookies on the cover. Flip back to the recipes and there is a picture that could have been taken of my grammy's ginger cookies. I started to cry. I won't be making them until the weekend but I thought I'd live the rest of my life without my grammy's cookies. Isn't amazing how wonderful cookies are for the soul? :D Merry Christmas to both of us!

You know what I'd really like? A gluten-free ice cream cookie - you know, the ones that are like ice cream cone with the frosting inside. I'm sure there is no such thing, at least not without soy. But they do have Udi's gluten-free waffles at my local store. I could probably console myself with some of those with ice cream on top. :wub:

I'm NOT going to go nuts with all of these treats, but since it's the Holidays, and everyone else is pigging out on fattening goodies, it feels good to have SOMETHING special to eat.

My favorites are the ginger snap mini's! The ones you got have soy lecithin, don't they? It's been a while since I got that flavor, they are pretty yummy. Good find...

Nope. No soy. The only "ingredient" I thought might be iffy is "gluten-free natural flavorings", but I am happy to say that I have had no reaction whatsoever. YIPPEEE!!!!!!

I love those, and the ginger snapz, too! They are tiny and crunchy, just like I prefer them. Unfortunately, cookies are a bit off limts of me at the moment... :(
