Lebkuchen (German Ginger Cookies - Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from: Gayle M Chastain.

Just wanted to share a few more tried and true holiday recipes.

Ads by Google:

1 beaten egg
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup honey
½ cup molasses
1 tablespoon apple juice or cider
¼ teaspoon grated lemon peel
½ teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup rice flour
½ cup sweet rice flour
¼ cup tapioca flour
¼ cup garbanzo bean flour
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cloves
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ cup chopped almonds
½ cup mixed candied fruits and peels
Lemon Glaze (follows)

Beat egg and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in honey, molasses, juices, and lemon peel. In another bowl, thoroughly combine flours, xanthan gum, and spices. Blend into molasses mixture. Stir in almonds and candied fruits. Chill dough several hours or overnight. Sprinkle waxed paper with powdered sugar. Roll out dough to 14 x 9 inch rectangle. Cut into 1 ½ x 2 inch cookies (I use a pizza cutter). Bake on lightly greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees about 12 minutes. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet and cool on rack. While warm, brush with lemon glaze.

Lemon Glaze:
Combine 1 ½ cups powdered sugar and enough lemon juice (about 2 teaspoon) to make a glaze. These are better if allowed to sit a few days before eating. They keep well.

Color me confused. I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible? How can they still put gluten-free on the box? We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question: How many of you would still buy that item? I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE. But I didn't want to take the risk. Maybe when she is healthier? I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!

JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much! Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking! Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage! Your all amazing Thankyou x

Yes! I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia. These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year. Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....

I will just share an experience I had..... I went to a steak house where there weren't a lot of safe options for me. So, I decided just to order a drink and eat later. I asked the bar tender about how they made their margaritas - fresh lime juice, fresh orange juice and gluten free tequila. gluten-free all the way. My husband went back to order for me and noticed that the bartender was juicing the limes and serving bread to the customers at the bar at the same time. I would have totally drank that margarita had he not seen him doing that. I decided to skip the margarita because of the high chance of CC

If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...
