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.

Gluten free recipes from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

orange-hazelnut gluten free scones

orange hazelnut gluten free sconesLooking for something a little different for breakfast? Try these gluten free scones made with hazelnut flour and orange zest. The flavour profile is out of this world – especially once you add the Nutella glaze. (The glaze recipe is included below – as well as one for a simple orange glaze for those of you who don’t like chocolate. Ha! Who am I kidding!?) These little beauties are surprisingly crispy on the outside and creamy in the centre. If your eyes were closed, you’d swear you were eating a chocolate glazed donut!

gluten free buns or rolls – gfandme.com

gluten free buns from gfandme.com. also rice and egg free and can be dairy free as well. These gluten free buns are salty and crispy on the outside with a soft, sweet, doughy centre, and they have none of that bitter gf flour flavour. They’re also rice and egg free and can be made without dairy. And because you knead the dough with an electric mixer, they’re also pretty easy to throw together. Unlike many gluten free bread doughs that tend to resemble cake batter, this recipe results in a dough that can be worked with and shaped, making it quite versatile.  Try using it to make gf bread sticks!

gluten free cream cheese tarts

gluten free tartsThese gluten free tarts would be the perfect treat for a gluten free Mother’s Day! The pastry is based on our conversion of my grandmother’s recipe for Danish pastries. Flaky and versatile, the dough can be used for everything from tarts and galettes to turnovers and  danishes. Give it a try… Here it is shaped into tart shells and filled with layers of cream cheese and apple pie filling, but these little tarts would be fantastic filled with cherry, blueberry, or lemon – whatever you can imagine. And these are even better the second day.

gluten free tortillas made with black beans

Black Bean Gluten Free Tortillas. gfandme.comNecessity really is the mother of invention. Geoff and I were invited to dinner the other day. The host was preparing enchiladas (OMG they were soooo good!). Thinking I could whip up a batch of our potato flour tortillas, I offered to bring some. Seemed like a great idea at the time, but when I went to make them – and of course I left it to the last minute – I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I improvised. Am I ever glad I did! These gluten free tortillas made with black beans may not be the prettiest, but they taste great, roll out well, stay soft, and don’t turn to mush in baked dishes. Out host sent us home with some left overs and these were still fantastic three days later! We haven’t tried them as a wrap yet, but I’m sure they would be perfect.
