Made Sugar Cookies!

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am SO happy I think I am glowing. I was going to make regular sugar cookies for my older kids to ice and put sprinkles on, but figured I better at least try to start learning stuff like this, because my baby that has celiac is 21 months and eventually will want some too. So I made the recipe in Bette Hagman's cookbook and they actually turned out. I took a picture of my little guy enjoying his. NO one, but a mom or someone with celiac would understand such excitement over something that simple! Anyway, I have had alot of stuff just turn out second rate from the real thing. Usually my motto has been, just don't even bother baking something gluten free, because it won't be as good, but these were excellent. I couldn't tell a difference. THere is hope!!!!!

I have not been a fan of stuff baked with Millet flour or the bean flours. THey are too strong for me. THe Millet was a bit gritty. Made chocolate chip cookies with bean flour once and they were thin and tasted off. This is the first cookie I have made that has turned out.

Ok, I will quit now!! LOL!

Just thought someone else might want to give it a try.

I'm glad they worked for you! I haven't tried sugar cookies yet, but I'm planning to sometime before Christmas. (Yikes, that should be like tomorrow!) Don't give up on the other types of cookies. I use the Bette Hagman flour recipe, with a little xanthan gum and make all my cookies that way. I don't like millet or bean flour either, but this really does work well.

I saw the Gluten free pantry recipe and thought about using it and saw another one someone posted on here that they said was very good(it was similar to the one I used). Anyway, I was happy with them. I will try and post the recipe later, but the recipe is in one of Bette Hagman's cookbooks. I only have one of her cookbooks.
