“These wonderful cinnamon-sugar cookies became very popular with my friends at church. My pastor loves them! You will too! Crispy edges, and chewy centers; these cookies are a crowd pleaser for sure!”

sorry no

it sounds like a uni-tasker, and I agree with Alton Brown about uni-taskers… there is ONLY 1 uni-tasker in my kitchen: the fire extinguisher.

This website gives a basic recipe that can be done 4 different ways. I’ve made the Peppermint Buttons version, and everyone raves about it and can’t get enough. It’s festive and Christmas-y, and best of all easy to make and yields a lot of cookies per recipe. Enjoy!

Q&A: Has anyone tried to make somthing from a normal recipe using Gluten-free flour?

Question by puff_coco_shimmy: Has anyone tried to make somthing from a normal recipe using Gluten-free flour?
I thought maybe I could make gluten free foods that taste good if the only thing that has gluten is the flour, I can just replace the flour with gluten-free flour. Has anyone tried this, like for cookie and cake recipes?

Answer by kittyfreek
Yes, but it doesn’t work in the same way as wheat flour. Gluten is the part that makes flour “gluey” and stretchy. G-free flour (depending what it’s made from) is much more crispy for want of a better word. I find it much more difficult to make pastry with it but still fine for cakes, batters etc.
Add a little more liquid, also Xanthum gum helps. Remember it won’t behave like wheat flour. Also remember there are loads and loads of alternative foods/flours.
