Apple Butter Cookies (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Valerie Thayer.

Ingredients:
2 cups gluten-free flour mix
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cloves
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dates, quartered (optional)
1 cup seedless raisins
½ cup margarine or butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup Lucky Leaf Apple Butter

Directions:
Combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar; stir in egg, dates, and raisins. Stir in dry ingredients alternately with apple butter. Chill dough for about 30 minutes. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated 375F degree oven for about 12 minutes.

To help prevent the cookies from spreading too much we chilled the dough before dropping onto a baking sheet. These cookies can stick together once cooled so I always slip a sheet of wax paper between them. And these freeze well for later!!

Very good for celiacs but not much on the sugar free as my son has both celiac and diabetes.

Try making them with Xylitol, it works just like sugar but is safe for diabetics, and delicious. Plus, no cavities!

I love these cookies! I first made them for my brother, and now am making them for another friend who recently learned he can't have gluten. Thanks for a great recipe!

Any suggestions on making it egg free...I was going to try using applesauce as a replacement (as I normally do for other baking needs) but....this already has apple butter so would that be too much apple?

I feel the same. Every so often, someone will roll their eyes. I try not to discuss it unless I have to, only because I don't love having the topic of conversation become me, but others seem genuinely curious. Every so often I have a pity party over not being able to just pick up a sandwich a...

I can't remember, but it was a few years ago and maybe it had Maltodextrin in it, or maybe it was the 'flavorings' - which I never eat unless it's from a company like Kraft or McCormick that labels clearly. But given that you eat it safely, maybe I'll contact the company for a clear answer.

So the simple explanation is - You eat gluten. It travels along and gets to your small intestine. For some reason, your small intestine feels it is an invader. but instead of making antibodies that "attack" the gluten, the small intestine cells make antibodies that attack itself. Sort of misg...

Hi - I think some of the issue here may be stemming from confusion about the word "exposed" and the two things in bold above -- while you are very strict about eating gluten, am I right that you've been accidentally eating some and for the past month have accidentally been not-gluten-free? If so...

my thinking was that if I ate gluten tonight again , then the reaction would be there tomorrow not that there would be gluten for them to find exactly. So from what your saying It would make sense - i.e. if my body was going to react to gluten with antibodies then by eating gluten say tonight it ...
