Hello All, if you just want the recipe to these delicious Ginger Cookies gone GF, I highly recommend scrolling to the end of the page.
I am definitely coming back off a long hiatus. Hopefully, I will have more to say and more to bake, but until then I am well into my Holiday Cookie Baking routine of preparing dough and cookies for gifts for friends. I hope you enjoy this GF spin on my famous Orange and Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Ho, ho, ho…the holiday spirit has taken over my house as I prepare for my BIG DAY! Sunday is Cookie Delivery Day over here and I have been making TRIPLE BATCHES of most of these cookies you see here. I’ve been making double batches of my All Purpose Flour versions and one batch of my Gluten-Free flour versions so I am certainly a busy little elf.
I have provided you with a photo line-up of my cookies, and here is my Cookie Game Plan if you need that as well. Hope you are feeling rather festive yourself, and if not, just make a batch of one of these cookies, and that may just put you in the mood.
Perfectly cheerful and spicy Gingerbread Cut Out Cookies
Or melt-in-your-mouth Greek Crescent Cookies which are buttery, rich and the best pairing to a good cup of coffee EVER!
For the chocolate lover in your group, here are my Death By Chocolate Peppermint Cookies. If you are a chocoholic and they don’t rock your holiday world, feel free to file a complaint, get your money back and sue for damages because I am 100% certain they are ALL THAT.
These Orange and Chocolate Chip Cookies with Rosemary may seem odd to you but they are honestly my most requested cookie (by adults!) at the holidays. They are tender, a bit chewy, citrus-y, and a hint of rosemary makes them special (in a good way).
AND I add these two favorites from around the blogosphere…
Flourless Peanut Butter Blossoms from Recipe Girl. You would never, ever believe these cookies don’t have flour so they are naturally Gluten-Free and are so ridiculously simple to make. They are a hit every year!
And the new one that is making it to our Holiday Cookie Baskets are these crazy, crazy delicious Gluten-Free Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies from Gluten-Free on a Shoestring. We could not keep our hands of these…nor our mouths for that matter.
Let me know if you give any of these a go and please feel free to add a link to your favorite holiday cookie in the comments! Happy Holidays!
Thanks for putting up with my lazy but appropriate re-posts for the beginning of this year. Obviously, my resolution was NOT to post more new stuff because that resolution would be long out the door.
Instead, my resolution is to take better care of myself and for me that means very little self-induced pressure for things that really don’t matter in the big picture (I.E. Frequent new posts or keeping a neater house). Have you considered the torment you cause yourself over things that frankly just don’t mean much? So my advice, if you think my opinion is worth a grain of salt, is to be kind to yourself, at least as kind as you are to others. Do things that make you happy and bring you peace, and take it a little easier on the self-talk. My self-talk is notoriously fairly kvetchy. Continue reading →
Is it freezing where you are…literally? So much of the country right now is under so many feet of snow…and a nice, hot bowl of soup may be just what is called for, and perhaps a Hot Buttered Rum to boot or a one way ticket to somewhere warm. If I were near you, I would gladly bring you over a pot of one of my soups…I love to make soup. It’s therapeutic if you ask me.
So here they are in all of their glory, my semi-famous S&C soup line-up…
Sausage and Kale Soup with potatoes and carrots…so full of heartiness that it will surely knock you out of your winter blues.
I have a strange obsession with The Sound of Music so I urge you to sing along as you read this and please forgive the rather crude missteps in my unpoetic rhythm and rhyme.
When the Pie Burns!
When Souffles Flop!
When I’m Feeling Sad…
I simply remember my favorite postings,
And then I don’t feel so bad!
Happy New Year to all and may 2014 bring a quieter earth, a more peaceful existence and much happiness.
