gluten free dinner rolls: whole grain or white

gluten free dinner rolls. gfandme.comThese dinner rolls are soft and yeasty with a tender bite. They are also sweet making them good all on their own, divine with a bit of butter or margarine, and perfect for those turkey or ham bunwiches over the holiday season! Mmmmmm. A bit of ham, a slice of swiss or cheddar, and some Dijon mustard. Heaven!

Below you’ll find recipes for either white or brown buns. The photo above is a white dinner roll. We prefer the nuttiness of the teff in the brown buns but they aren’t quite as photogenic!

gluten free mincemeat tarts

mincemeat tarts. gfandme.comI think mincemeat tarts are my absolute favorite Christmas treat. They are another long time Christmas tradition in my family. My mom used to make dozens and dozens of these little sweet treats when my sisters, brother and I were little. Of course, they were off limits for us kids but we would still sneak a few now and then from where they were hidden in the bottom of the deep freeze (and by ‘now and then’ I mean ‘daily’). To this day I think I like them best when they are frozen solid!

Anyway, after Geoff was diagnosed with celiac disease, we went went without these for a Christmas or two. Then mom developed her awesome gluten free pastry recipe and since then has made us a batch every year. Thanks mom! I honestly cannot tell the difference between these and the old glutenous version.

Mary’s Danish Shortbread: now gluten free!

If you miss those soft, melt-in-your-mouth whipped butter cookies, this is the recipe for you. It is another Danish recipe that’s been in my family for generations (for others see here and here). My grandmother, or Bedstemor, used to make these (both regular and a chocolate-almond variety) and I’m sure my great grandmother made them as well. However, it was my mom who took them to new heights. Her Danish shortbread is always airy, sweet perfection! When my brother and sisters and I were little, these cookies were in high demand. Mom used to make hundreds, perhaps thousands of these for school concerts, community events, and gifts, and now here is the recipe converted to gluten free!  (Scroll down or click on ‘more’ for the recipe.gluten free whipped butter shortbread cookiesThis recipe was first converted by Rural Route Lupiac.

coconut oatmeal cookies – gluten free and spicy

If you’ve been following our blog, you’ll know that due to circumstances that should have been totally under our control this is the second round of photographs for these cookies. But I have to say, they are worth the effort. These soft and chewy little bits of gluten free heaven are full of the flavours of cinnamon, all spice, and coconut. Geoff says that they remind him of a Dads coconut cookie but without the crunch. Dads were one of his favorite b.c. (before celiac) cookies (the other being chocolate Oreos. Anyone have a recipe for chocolate oreos?) Judging from how quickly these are disappearing, I’m guessing they are going to be a new favorite around here. Hmmmmm…where’s that glass of milk? ~scroll down for the recipe~

gluten free field berry muffins

Okay, what I’d like to say is “look at my fantastic muffins with their nice plump berries and beautiful white cake,” but alas I can’t: it would be a lie. Those muffins pictured below aren’t my muffins. They are somebody else’s muffins.

Why would I post a picture of someone else’s muffins, you ask? Because I just accidentally deleted 197 photos off of my hard drive. Those pictures included my pictures of these field berry muffins (along with two new breads and some fantastic spicy oatmeal cookies – not too mention the snowstorm we had a week ago… Oh and the woodpeckers and the deer that have been hanging around since). Some days I hate technology. It’s not like I ever accidentally threw away a canister of film. (Yes I remember actual film – I am old enough to know why cell phones make that clicky noise when they record an image.) And if I had of picked up a roll of film, opened my cupboard, pulled out my bin and “accidentally” dropped it in the trash, after I realized what a silly a** I’d been, I could have laughed it off, reached back in and plucked it right out again, ready to mail to the developers. (Yes, I remember that too.) Somehow I don’t think I can reach into this black box of mystery humming along beside me and recover my digital files…

Anyway, I digress. I wallow. I resort to clip art.  You’ll just have to trust me when I say that this recipe results in moist and fluffy vanilla muffins ready for your own add-ins. Here we used a berry mix but chocolate chips or nuts would also be great.

When I make them again, which will be soon, I will take a picture – not delete it – and post it proudly for all to see.

key lime pie cookies – and they’re gluten free!

These cookies are light and sugary with a texture that’s crispy at first and then dissolves into melt-in-your-mouth buttery goodness. And did I mention that they have the awesome added bonus of tasting like key lime pie – one of our flavour favorites. The trick is the melted candy centres and although we like lime, you could also try it with cherry, orange, pineapple, or lemon. (Scroll down for the recipe.)
