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.

gf and me’s crusty bread II

gluten free crusty bread II. gf and me 2013.

Our original crusty bread is one of our most popular posts, so we figured gf and me’s readers might be interested in another artisan bread recipe. This one uses our new favorite flour – tapioca flour – and has a wonderful flavour and good air pockets. Like our original crusty bread, it too has a soft chewy crumb.

For more on tapioca flour see A Taste of Brazil’s post “Tapioca Flour: What Is It Really?” For a raisin bread version of our original crusty bread, see Rural Route Lupiac’s blog. Also see her post on her copycat recipe for Cup4Cup all-purpose gf flour. We haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but it looks fantastic!
