Here's my favorite easy recipe. Be careful when you roll in the powdered sugar or they'll be Russian Tea "Bombs"

Russian Tea Cakes (Adapted from Betty Crocker's Cookbook)

1 C Butter or margarine, softened (but not melted)

1/2 C Powdered sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

2 C + 2 Tbs. gluten-free flour

1 Tbs. xanthan gum

1 tsp. Ener-G egg replacer

1/4 tsp. salt ONLY if using unsalted butter

3/4 C chopped nuts (optional)

Powdered sugar

Heat oven to 400. Mix butter, 1/2 C powdered sugar and vanilla. Sift flour, xanthan gum, egg replacer and salt (if using) together 3 times. Stir flour mixture and nuts into butter mixture until dough holds together. Shape into 1" balls and place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until set, but not brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly, roll in powdered sugar. DO THIS VERY CAREFULLY! Cool completely and then roll again in powdered sugar. Makes about 4 dozen.


Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13
