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.

Yes^, usually if you tell them about celiac, they know. Almost all nurses know what celiac is. If not, tell them what you can and can't consume. There is no such thing as gluten in IV.

A ketogenic diet is good if you are trying to lose weight, lower insulin levels, fight diabetes, lower blood sugar, etc. . But I'm 20 years old, 5'9 165lbs, that's not healthy for me.

I pretty much do all of that with the exception of parchment paper. I tried telling them about the loose flower and they look at me like I'm being some controlling a**hole.

Vitamin deficiencies of vitamins D, C, and B12 and Calcium deficiency can all cause night sweats. (Perhaps the methyl form of B12 is needed for those with that MthFr gene.) Also, consistently high blood sugar levels can cause night sweats. As a type two diabetic, I find if my blood sugar...
