  • Fabulously Decadent Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

    Peanut butter cookies have always been a favorite cookie of mine.  They remind me of childhood and my mother teaching me how to make the crisscross pattern with the fork.  According to Wikipedia: The peanut butter cookie originated in the United States….The early peanut butter cookies were rolled thin and cut into shapes. They were also dropped and made into balls. They did not have fork marks. The first reference to the famous criss-cross marks created with fork tines was published in the Schenectady Gazette on July 1, 1932.  When I started my gluten free journey in 2007, finding a good gluten free flour was very difficult.  This lead me to forgo flour all together when I could.  That’s exactly what I did with this recipe for gluten free peanut butter cookies, making it more decadent take on the traditional peanut butter cookie. This is such a simple recipe, that you probably… Read More

  • Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    I am so glad to finally be bringing this recipe to you. If you follow me on my other social media outlets like Instagram, you may have seen some photos of past cookie batches. I’ve been working really hard to make a gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies that tastes just like the cookies that my mother used to make as a child.

I’m so happy that there are folks out their… Read More
