Gluteln Free Lemon & Coconut Shortbread Cookies

There's nothing like a good shortbread cookie with a cup of tea. We used to devour one of my former client's gluten free lemon shortbread cookies (Simply Shari's), but I can't have them anymore because they contain tapioca and citrus. My husband still enjoys them, though. Meanwhile, since my flour blend recipe calls for tapioca or cornstarch, I can make my own shortbread cookies. My hubby misses lemon desserts since I realized I was allergic to it. So, I'm trying to make enough to freeze for him to enjoy!. I hope you enjoy them as well.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chewy cookies. So, that's the way I decided to make these gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Yum! I add chopped walnuts, but you can omit them, if desired. A matter of fact, you can even omit the chocolate chips, if preferred. You can add raisins, dried cranberries, or even dried blueberries. Make them your way!

Gluten Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

While I have a few recipes for chocolate chip cookies on this site, they are either double chocolate, soft, or a bit crunchy. This one is your typical chewy gluten free chocolate chip cookies. I don't know why I haven't developed a recipe for them earlier as they are one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have.

Gluten Free Vanilla Wafers - Round

I have been wanting to create a gluten free vanilla wafers recipe for sometime now. It's finally here. Now you can make that banana cream pie or banana pudding you used to make. This recipe was adapted from Food Network's Chef Alton Brown's recipe for Vanilla Wafers. They are just wonderful. I'm thinking of replacing my gluten free milano cookies recipe for this recipe instead. Whether you make them bite size or regular size, they are a treat, that for me, brought back some great memories from when I was young, as well as when my kids were young. There are a couple of variations which you can check out below in the Tips area. I hope you enjoy them.

Chewy Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I not only broke down and made chewy gluten free chocolate cookies but made them with chocolate chips to boot, for a double chocolate delight! I wanted to duplicate the cookie recipe used in the Pizookies at BJ's Restaurant Brewhouse. They serve you a warm cookie freshly baked in a large tin topped with 2 scoops of rich chocolate ice cream. They even add a square of Ghirardelli Chocolate. These cookies are to die for! Fortunately, theirs are made with gluten, or I would be sharing one every time I visited there. Due to their calorie content, I would not eat these cookies often, but they are a definite treat for guests and special events. These gluten free chocolate cookies are soft, chewy and rich with chocolate. Add walnuts or more chocolate chips. It's up to you! Look for Pizookie recipe in tomorrow's post!

Gluten Free Shortbread Thumbprint Cookies

Even on a diet, I don't deny myself goodies. Just one of these delicious shortbread cookies can go a long way. Shortbread cookies are made to almost fall apart when you bite into them. However, I like them a little firmer than that. I think these are just perfect. The jam is just icing on the cake*! No. It's jam on the cookie!

Gluten Free Hermit Cookies with Raisins, Dates & Nuts

Butter and brown sugar make these cookies chewy and moist. Hermit cookies are so named because they can be stored for long periods due to their moisture level. They are packed with raisins, dates, and nuts, which adds to their chewiness and texture. Can you imagine what they'd taste like? Get ready, start baking gluten free hermit cookies!

Gluten Free Butter Cookies with Chocolate Drizzled on Top

Inspired by the Girl Scout Samoas, this cookie is much larger, crisper, and instead of shredded coconut, it calls for nuts. (I used walnuts. If have a nut allergy, use desiccated coconut.) With its caramel topping and chocolate coated bottoms, they are definitely indulgent.
