GF Cookies!

Baking_classics_cover2-W-171px GF – that's gluten free for those of you not used to looking for it.

I've been gluten free for 2 weeks now and I can now report that I've found a marvelous GF cookbook: Gluten-Free Baking Classics by Annalise G. Roberts. And I just found her website – oh happy day!

Baking season is here at my house. I've already make the yellow cake from this cookbook for Elanor's birthday and it got rave reviews. Not just 'gee, that's great for gluten free' but 'wow, that's a great cake!' If you are going to go to the trouble to cook from scratch those are good words to hear.

This cookbook is well written. The instructions are direct and short. If you follow the directions it's all good. I could not help myself, today I made chocolate chip cookies

In the past I've made cookies for Lorna and the grandkids substituting GF flour for regular flour. I know now why those cookies spread out too much and were crumbly. GF flours require changes in the ingredients. I gotta tell you, these cookies are just as good as regular cookies. And these are a little easier to make :-). Steve's going to makethe cinnamon rolls for me next weekend!

For those of you who are now very excited and ready to order the cookbook, also order some of the special flour mixes she recommends from Authentic Foods: Superfine Brown Rice Flour and Superfine Sweet Rice Flour. There are other flours you may want but this will get you started.

  1. Hope going GF is helping you! I’ve been GF for hmm, 11 years now and it has made a world of difference for me. I wish I had discovered you three months ago – I live in Melbourne, Oz. We have some good GF bread and stuff here, a couple of cafes even 🙂 But the US beats us hands down for gluten and dairy free icecream.

  2. I find that I don’t like the texture of gluten free baked goods, maybe because I am not mixing the flours right. I’m used to “all-purpose”. But I’ve ordered the book and will try it. I really miss baked goods!
