Homemade Gluten-Free Cookies
0

12 posts in this topic

I'm not a very good "cook," but I've always enjoyed baking.

After my disastrous attempt at gluten-free muffins last week, I decided to try some cookies this week. I bought a couple of gluten-free baking cookbooks (one of which was specifically for cookies) and bought some new types of flour.

My first attempt was Girl Scout Samoa Cookies and I have to admit, they are very tasty! I wish I had done a few things differently on the actual assembly of the cookies, but the taste is still very good! I got these out of "The Ultimate Gluten-Free Cookie Book" by Roben Ryberg.

Do you have a favorite homemade cookie that you've been very successful making? Any cookbooks (baking) that are particularly good?

I was going to suggest the book you mentioned. I've had pretty good luck with the recipes I've tried from there. More often than not when I make cookies, I use my old gluteny favorite recipes and just use Tom Sawyer flour in place of the AP flour. I have had wonderful success with that, no other adjustments necessary. But the Tom Sawyer flour is very expensive so sometimes I use the Ryberg book so I can use brown rice or sorghum flour instead.

I just started a blog for easy gluten free recipes and 1 of my first posts was a 3 ingredient super yummy peanut butter cookie recipe.

1 cup sugar

1 cup natural peanut butter

1 egg

Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes.

I have made these for years long before I ever knew anything about gluten and have always gotten numerous compliments.

Hope that helps!

They're one of my favorites, too, although I rarely bake cookies...as if I need them sitting around here to munch on. :blink:

My recipe for this includes 1 tsp vanilla, which I think is a nice addition. I learned it when I worked for a cookie stamp manufacturing company 14 years ago. They have 5 gluten-free recipes (some I've never tried): http://www.cookiestamp.com/recipes_table#MintsCandies this link takes you to the mint and candies recipes which should be gluten-free (double check, though, cause I just skimmed them). The cream cheese candy is really good - I made it with the chocolate variation. The Unbelievable PNB recipe is the one above. PLEASE NOTE: Their rice flour cookies call for using regular all-purpose flour and are not gluten-free. Technically, you don't have to use cookie stamps to make the recipes, but they're fun to use if you're taking the cookies to a get together or just to brighten up your day.

I'm hoping that I can just sub better batter flour or King Arthur or Tom Sawyer flour for all my holiday cookie baking. Time will tell. Eventually, I'll make some cookies. Just haven't tried it yet.

This was a fav at our house pre-gluten-free. I use 1/2 cup brown & 1/2 white sugar, tsp vanilla and chocolate chips.

Has anyone tried substituting almond butter (or the like) in any cookies? Does it change anything?

I have a friend who told me she subs almond or sunflower butter in the same amounts as the PB. I haven't tried it.

I made these for the first time yesterday. They are pretty darn good and so very easy! Can't beat good AND easy. :)

Lemon Cookies - Gluten-free Casein-free

Makes 20 cookies

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon Gluten-free Casein-free Vanilla or lemon extract

1 cup soy flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoon water

Mix together the oil and sugar. Blend in the flavorings. Sift together the dry ingredients three times (to add volume to the flour). Add these to the oil/sugar mixtures. Add water and mix again. Form the dough into a roll. Chill for 1 to 2 hours. Cut into as thin of slices as possible and bake on a well greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Hey! Didn't you just post this somewhere else? You didn't include my great suggestions! :lol:

Have you tried it with any different flours?

LOL! Yep, it was too good not to repost here in the cookies section. I haven't tried any other flours. I don't think it would work with other flours. I have a cookbook that uses soy flour for gluten free recipes. With soy flour, you don't have to use and of the xan. or guar gums. This makes it easy and cheap and yummy!

Here is another one.

Snickerdoodles!

1 cup butter

1 1/2 c sugar

2 eggs

2 cups + 2 T sorghum flour

1/4 cup + 2 T soy flour

2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients together and set aside. Cream butter, cream in sugar until smooth. Add eggs, beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredients, mix well. Chill. Mix 2 T sugar with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Roll dough into small balls, roll in cinnamon/sugar mix, bake at 400
