    Peanut Butter Kisses (Gluten-Free)

    This recipe comes to us from Jo Ann Boyd.

    Ingredients:
    ½ cup Butter Crisco
    1 cup fine rice flour
    1 ¼ cups light brown sugar
    ½ cup potato starch
    ¾ cup peanut butter
    ¼ cup tapioca starch
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    3 tablespoons milk
    ¾ tsp baking soda
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    Approx. 60 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
    Sugar, optional

    Directions:
    In large bowl combine first 6 ingredients and beat until well blended. In separate bowl combine all dry ingredients until well blended. Stir the rest of ingredients into Crisco mixture at Lo speed. Form into walnut size balls and roll in sugar, if desired. Place about 2 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375F degrees for approx. 8-10 minutes or until set, but not hard. Remove from oven and push Hershey Kiss into center of each cookie. Cool 5 min. before removing to racks. Cool until Kiss hardens again. Makes about 4 ½ dozen cookies.

    This is WAY more complicated than it has to be. Peanut butter cookies do NOT need any flour - they are perfectly delicious without. The recipe? 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg. Mix, roll into balls, bake at 350 for 4-5 minutes, stick a kiss on top each half-baked cookie ball and bake another 4-5 minutes. Easy, gluten-free, and delicious.

    I have used Shannon's recipe in my special needs classroom, we call it 'cuppa, cuppa, egg.' It is so simple and tastes just like the real thing, just don't overcook them (unless you like crunchy cookies). You can also cook the cookie all the way through and then add the Hershey Kiss.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Chocolate Pudding with Fresh Vanilla Whipped Cream (Gluten-Free)
    A little sinful? Perhaps. But, I believe everyone needs a few desserts under their belt if for no other reason than to break out on a rainy day. Homemade chocolate pudding is a nostalgic must-have and naturally gluten-free. Superfine sugar isn’t crucial, but it’s smoother and melts easier. The vanilla gives the whipped cream a little boost and can be made a few hours ahead of time. The pudding can be made up to 1 day ahead, but both are best served fresh.
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ cups bittersweet chocolate chips
    2 egg yolks
    2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons plus ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 ½ cups whole milk
    ⅓ cup sugar, divided (superfine sugar if available)
    Directions:
    In a medium saucepan, whisk together all but 1 tablespoon of sugar with cornstarch and salt. Whisk in ½ cup of milk and egg yolks until smooth. Slowly add the remaining milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly so not to boil over.
    Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips, butter and ¼ teaspoon vanilla. Stir together until melted and smooth. Pour pudding into 6 ramekins or small bowls, or 1 large bowl and cover. Chill for at least 3 hours, but up to a day.
    For topping, beat cream and the remaining sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until peaks form. Serve pudding with a dollop or two of whipped cream.

    Fall mean apples and apples mean joy. Fresh homemade applesauce is one of my favorite ways to partake in that joy. This recipe is easy to make, and delicious. I put this applesauce on ice-cream, pancakes, waffles, peanut butter sandwiches, and many other things. I prefer to warm it up just a bit, but this easy homemade applesauce is either warm or chilled.
    Ingredients:
    5 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
    5 Gravenstein or Fuji apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
    1¼ cups unfiltered apple juice
    2-3 tablespoons brandy or cognac
    3 tablespoons butter
    4 tablespoons sugar
    Scant 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Splash of lemon juice
    Dash of salt to taste
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 F.
    Cook until apples are soft when poked with a fork. Remove from oven and transfer to blender. Add all remaining ingredients blend to desired consistency using blender or potato masher. Adjust flavor by adding cognac, sugar, salt or lemon juice to taste.
    Serve hot immediately or chill for later use.

    Rice Krispies Ice Cream Sandwiches (Gluten-Free)
    Celiac.com 07/08/2014 - I was dying for an ice-cream sandwich the other day, and I didn’t have many options. I did, however, have some leftover Rice Krispies Treats and some ice cream. The rest, as they say, is history.
    There are so many great variations on this recipe. You can make peanut butter Rice Krispy Treats. You can use chocolate ice cream. You can do both. You can use strawberry, or any of you favorite ice cream flavors. Fruit flavors work well. The list goes on and on.
    Ingredients:
    Gluten-free Rice Krispies cereal Marshmallows Butter Ice cream of choice Directions:
    Prepare Rice Krispies Treats as desired, following the recipe on the box. For a chocolate version, I use gluten-free Cocoa Pebbles ice cream.
    Allow treats to cool.
    Cut treats into squares, then cut in half again, so you have a good top and bottom.
    Use a cold knife to cut ice cream into squares.
    Sandwich ice cream between the two halves of the treats. Serve immediately.

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.

    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
