In Topic: Another Cookie Baking Question-Cookie Are Dry?

14 December 2014 - 12:17 PM

Try almond flour or cream cheese. These will give the cookie moisture they need to not be dry/crumbly. Post the recipe and I will look to see where you can substitute one or both into the recipe.

In Topic: Weigh In On Psyllium Husk Powder

Yes it works really well. Gives the bread good texture almost like bread with gluten. I bought my bag at local health food store Sprouts. The bag was whole psyllium husks, so i ran them in my spice grinder and they were very fine. The recipe I used was out of Americas Test Kitchen Cookbook How can it be Gluten Free. If you want the recipe let me know I can give it to you.

In Topic: Need To Make Vegan Gluten-Free Rolls...recipe Help?

Since you are new to this I would highly recommend America's Test Kitchen "How it can be Gluten Free" . This is a great book with the research already done for you.  Invest the 20 dollars and then take what they have done and incorporate into what you are doing. They have some really great results, and everything I have made from the book has been excellent.

Yes you could cook the day before and just reheat. Also on the pan drippings, use 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a small jar with a little water, shake and pour into pan drippings. Stir while heating to keep from clumping up.
