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 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!

DESSERTS

chocolate hazelnut cupcakes with Nutella frosting

You can really taste the hazelnut flour in these rich and decadent chocolate hazelnut cupcakes. Great served plain, but once you add the creamy Nutella frosting (recipe below) you will NOT be able to stop at one!  chocolate hazelnut cupcakes. gfandme.com I used to make the glutenous version of these almost every year for Geoff for Valentine’s Day. He LOVED them. So when I found hazelnut flour in the grocery store the other day, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it – convert his old favorite to gluten free. I figured it’d be good, but it turned out even better than I expected! We actually like the gluten free version better. The hazelnut flour gives the cakes a more complex flavour and better texture.
