freeze and bake gluten free sugar cookies. gfandme.comPerfect for snacks, when company drops in, or those midnight tea and cookie cravings (and if you’re like me, they happen more often than you want to admit!), this cookie dough can be made ahead of time, frozen, and then sliced and baked as-needed! This is also the perfect recipe if you are not gluten free but would like to keep something on hand for that special gf person who comes by (just make sure to watch for any cross-contamination). They taste great too – a bit like a coconut shortbread cookie. The flavour is mild and can easily be enhanced with a few chocolate chips, a bit of mint extract, orange zest, or whatever you can think of! They are also great dipped in melted chocolate and cooled :)

gluten free muffins: spiced pumpkin

gluten free muffins: pumpkin spice. gfandme.com

I was aiming for dairy free, gluten free pumpkin muffins but the resulting treats were so cake-like, I thought, “Maybe I’ve serendipitously come up with a recipe for gf pumpkin cupcakes?” Then again, I wanted to eat them for breakfast – and I just can’t let myself start eating cupcakes for breakfast. “So,” I decided, “they need a new name, something that encapsulates their light-yet-hearty crumb and spicy, sweet taste.” My first attempt was “muffcake”… but Geoff said that just didn’t seem right. In the end, I went with my next oh-so-creative idea: “cupffins.” Confused? Give them a try and you’ll see what I mean.

gluten free wunder bars – peanutty caramel chocolate delights!

gluten free wunder bar - crunchy peanut, caramel and chocolate delight!Sure, Fall is associated with cinnamon and pumpkin and harvests of fresh vegetables but for some reason, around our house, it’s also associated with chocolate and peanut butter. Oh and caramel, lots and lots of caramel! Must be some kind of throwback to halloweens gone by with their sacks full of mini chocolate bars, caramel apples, and peanut butter cups. Whatever the reason, sometime around mid-October, in between the roasted parsnips, pumpkin pies, and cinnamon lattes, I always find myself craving candy bars – peanut butter cups, Oh Henry’s, M & M’s. And, of course, those gluten filled bundles of caramel coated joy: Cadbury’s Wunderbars. Now, while Geoff can’t eat gluten, I can and I admit to sneaking in the odd Wunderbar when I’m out and about shopping or otherwise Geoff-less. But I know they used to be one of his favorites too, so this year I decided to put my hand to making a copy cat gluten free Wunder bar. It took a few tries, but I think I was pretty successful. These are a bit softer than the original, but they taste very close to – if not better than – the real thing. If you’ve been missing those Viking treats, this is the recipe for you. And if you’ve never had a wunderbar, you are in for a taste treat!

gluten free pumpkin pie cheesecake – our favorite Thanksgiving dessert!

gluten free pumpkin pie cheesecakePumpkin pie and cheesecake are two of our favorite desserts, so we figured, why not combine them! This flourless gluten free pumpkin pie cheesecake makes a great Thanksgiving dessert – both traditional and a bit different. You can make it with a crumb crust (recipe included) or bake it crustless. Either way, the cheesecake is creamy and light with a hint of pumpkin and cinnamon. Try to make this a day or two ahead of time – the flavours of the pumpkin and the spices really come out the longer it sits.

gluten free pumpkin tarts

pumpkin tarts. gfandme.comI found this fabulous recipe for pumpkin cupcakes on fantasy author S. J. Wolff’s blog,  Wolff’s Realm. I converted it to gluten free using coconut and rice flours, and the result was awesome! The cupcakes disappeared before I could even get a photo! So I made them again, and this time I made them into gluten free pumpkin tarts by adding a ginger cookie and coconut crust. The ginger and coconut flavours combined beautifully with the pumpkin, the crumbs added a bit of texture, and the tarts also came out of the pan easier. And this time, I didn’t tell anyone about them until I had a picture to post!

This filling would also be great with Mary’s Magnificent Pie Crust!

gluten free Dad’s cookies!

gluten free dad's cookies. gfandme.comDo you miss those crispy, spicy prepackaged Dad’s cookies? Geoff certainly did. This recipe for gluten free Dad’s Cookies is the culmination of a long process of trying to get just the right flavour and texture of those little marvels in the bright yellow bags. One result was posted here earlier under the title Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. They were good, but too tender and too spicy to be truly called a Dad’s cookie copycat! These, however, come very close to the real thing, so go ahead, eat them by the handful, dunk them in your milk, or dip them in your coffee. Yummmm.

Note: Not everyone who has celiac disease can tolerate oats and oat flour, even when they are certified gluten free. If you have questions, talk to your physician or dietitian.
