I'm begging for a recipie for that and the icing. I like them soft and chewy too :lol: if that helps.

I thought well, since we had a pie crust thread, why not a sugar cookie one. Tis the season and all that jazz.

Also i don't have a mixer... so something hand stirred friendly?

I wonder if the new mix from Pamela's will have the right texture. I just hope I can find ones that I can use cookie cutters on.

Gluten eaters usually ask for the recipe.

I have been experimenting with adding almond paste for more flavor. Has added that much flavor, but it didn`t change the consistancy.

Just made some Halloween cookies (notice my new av? :rolleyes: )

Here is the recipe that I now use:

1 Cup Butter

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Cup Sugar

2 Eggs

2 Teaspoon Vanilla

3 1/4 Cups gluten-free Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum

Cream butter and sugars well, add eggs and vanilla and mix till well blended. Combine all dry ingredients and add a little at a time until well blended. Refrigerate (overnight if possible). Roll out a little at a time using as little gluten-free flour as possible . . . keep rest of dough in fridge (or work fast). Cut out cookies and transfer to pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely before decorating.

For non-cut-out cookies, I put the dough in a one gallon ziplock back, shape into a tube and refrigerate. After it's cold, remove from ziplock and roll to get a somewhat-even log of dough and then just slice and bake.

I use Annalise Roberts recipe for gluten-free flour mix: 6 cups brown rice flour (extra finely ground), 2 cups potato starch, 1 cup tapioca flour . . . I think the key to a good texture is the fineness of the grind of the rice flour. I use Authentic Foods Brown Rice flour . . . pricey, but I'll never go back to Bob's Red Mill rice flours (I do use their tapioca and potato starch). If I use white rice flour, I use Flying Horse brand from an Asian Market (much finer grind than Bob's Red Mill and cheaper as well).

Icing Recipe:

1 Cup Crisco

2 lbs bag of Powdered Sugar

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

2 Teaspoons Butter Flavoring

Pinch of Salt

Enough Milk (Water works as well) to get to the thickness you like

Combine all.

Notes: If you want the white decorating icing, use Wilton's clear vanilla and clear butter flavoring. You don't have to use the butter flavoring . . . I've got it, I like it, I use it. Wilton's paste colors will let you get the deep colors. This is very forgiving on the quantities . . . I don't measure anything, just eyeball it.

On the bright side, you're already half way there with the number of posts you need before the moderators let you post moderator-review-free.

The down side to that whole arrangement is that we no longer have access to cheap nikes, online pharmecauticals than can cure anything, or fake passports.

Go ahead and post your recipe!! I'm pretty happy with my current one, but I'm always looking to take credit for other people's suggestions improve my product. :D

    • Hospitals and the ER....will normally ignore your dietary requirements with celiac. If they gave you so called gluten-free food...it had gluten. You have to have your own brought in or ask for plain whole foods. I wear medical dog tags with emergency contact info, allergies, blood type, and medical info on them. And my emergency contacts have been told where I keep emergency room stashes...IE Julian Protein Bar, MRM meal shakes to take up there if I get stuck in the hospital.
    • Hello- I was DX Celiac 2 years ago.  Last week I had a terrible accident, broke ankle and had to be taken to emergency. I was pumped full of drugs mostly Versed and Fentanal  via IV. After the usual couple days of constipation following these sort of drugs I began having GLUTENED intestinal issues.  I've had non stop bathroom runs for 2 days now and everything about it feels like I've been seriously glutened.  I've done some research but found no conclusive answers.  Did any of those things stir up my Celiac disease and cause me to have an autoimmune response? Has anyone had any similar experiences they can share with me?  This is my first post.  Thank you
    • All the issues you said came up after going gluten-free. Three points
      1. Are you sure you eating gluten free? If you eat out good chance your getting CCed, and is everything your eating really gluten free? There are many that are iffy on the market now days and CC can get in on some of the oddest aspects like shampoo, make up, lotion, medication, sauces, spices. etc.
      2. Sounds like your have deficiency issues, what are you eating? Your supposed to eat a varied diet when gluten free, most gluten free processed foods are not enriched...most gluten food is essentially sprayed with vitamins. SO you need to eat a varied diet eating leafy greens meats, eggs, etc. I myself have other limitations and have to supplement what I would get from these. ALSO celiac makes it where you do not absorb all the nutrients from your food I have 2 suggestion of stuff you NEED to take. Liquid health Stress & Energy, Liquid Health Nurological Support, and Doctors Best Magnesium.... these will help with stress, muscle aches, and energy issues. NOW you might need some other things like D and a few others.
      3. Sugars can cause all kinds of issues I know the issues with the craving.....I can not avoid them myself. I use some sweeteners like erythrol, stevia, monk fruit, etc to avoid the real sugar and the chemical BS ones. I make grain free, dairy free, gluten free baked goods, nut butters and snacks and even make a living off of selling them......I have a focus on making everything super moist as I know that is a huge craving for those of us with this.  Try moving to a healthier option if you can spiking your insulin and glucose levels is going to raise all kinds of havoc and the excess sugars can lead to candida or sibo in your intestines.

      Oh and yeah if you think death is bad we had a member have to get a emergency colonstomy. They ignored it and ate gluten and kept on doing it.....yeah having to poop in a bag sounds worse then death or cancer to me....and those are your other options.
    • Your daughter is only 7 years old.    I believe with a strict gluten-free diet, and some time, she will grow. My daughter was diagnosed at age 10.   When she was younger, she was always tall for her age.   She was in the 90% percentile as a toddler.   When she was finally diagnosed at age 10, we noticed that she did not grow at all for a little over a year, and she was at 25% percentile, and shorter than all her girl friends.   (She used to be one of the taller kids in the class) She is 14 years old now, still growing, and she is catching up with her friends, (no longer the shortest).   She is 5' 3'' right now.   She does not have her period yet, so we hope she will grow another few inches.   If she can be 5' 6", that would be a very good height for a girl. I think your daughter will be fine.  With a strict gluten-free diet, of course.
    • Thank you for the info cyclinglady! As far as repeated celiac antibodies testing, I think my dr had me tested for that several months ago, and it was improving. I think that's when she had mentioned that "you're an 8 now and you used to be a 12". That was about 3-4 months ago if I recall. As far as my thyroid, I don't ever remember my dr mentioning anything like Hashimoto or Graves, just that my T3 levels were off. When I went to the dr recently (4 days ago), she had mentioned that I HAVE to take a synthetic or natural Rx for it (like Nature Throid) and said I basically can't just stop taking it, and if I stopped taking it that, worst case, I could end up dying.
