You can make one of my favorite gluten free cookie recipes for St. Patrick’s Day and cut them into your desired shapes. They don’t have to be cut into clovers if you don’t have a clover cookie cutter. Any shape will do. How you decorate can turn them into a festive treat. Choose from gingerbread (shown), buttery cut-out, or crunchy chocolate cookie recipes. I like the idea of gingerbread cookies for the “ginger” (red-head) in your life for St. Patrick’s Day or for anyone!
The Crunchy Chocolate Wafers Recipe is also dairy-free, without the chocolate coating unless you use Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips. To make the other cookie recipe options dairy-free, consider using organic palm oil (best substitute). Alternatively, use Earth Balance Buttery Baking Sticks (not the soft margarine in the tub.)
Substitute each egg with 2 tablespoons liquid from a can of white kidney beans + 1 tablespoon fat (oil or butter as indicated in the recipe).
I like to use natural food coloring whenever possible (Seelect Tea). For vibrant colors and also dairy-, peanut-, and nut-free, AmeriColor Gel is great. They do not produce any gluten, nuts, peanuts, or animal products in their facilities. They manufacture other products which contain other allergens on separate lines. All their products are gluten-free. Then, lastly, liquid McCormick. They’re all gluten free.
