Gluten and Dairy Free Maple & Ginger Cookies

Hello everyone

As promised last week when I shared my jam thumbprint cookies, this is my recipe for gluten and dairy free maple and ginger cookies.  If you don’t have maple syrup you can substitute it for honey or for a richer stickier cookie you can use treacle.

Since I’m on a run of making cookies I think my next project will be to develop a recipe for a gluten and dairy free chocolate cream sandwich biscuit – watch this space.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Rhubarb and Ginger Thumbprint Cookies

Evening everyone

I made these lovely rhubarb and ginger jam thumbprint cookies last week, gluten and dairy free of course.

I’m working on a few new biscuit/cookie recipes for the website as I don’t have a huge amount featured already.

I’ve just finished a recipe for maple ginger cookies so look out for that coming soon.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Orange Cookies

choc-orange-cookies

Hello

I’m not sure why but I don’t often make biscuits and cookies.  When I go into the kitchen to make something sweet I always tend to make a cake.  These cookies are a crumbly shortbread with zesty orange dipped into dark chocolate.

The recipe makes 18 cookies but you can keep the uncooked cookie dough in the fridge for up to a week so you can bake the cookies fresh.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Spiced Lemon and Sultana Cookies

serves / makes 8 large cookies
15 prep time
15 mins cooking time

Description

Nothing smells better than warm cinnamon coming from the oven and these cookies baking in the oven smell amazing. The sweetness of the spices are balanced out by the zestiness of the lemon. As you probably noticed from the amount of my recipes that contain cinnamon I’m a huge fan. If you aren’t as crazy about cinnamon as I am you can omit the spices from these cookies and still end up with a lovely lemon and sultana cookie.

If you don’t finish these cookies or want to make something in advance they actually freeze very well. Either defrost them at room temperature for a few hours before enjoying or pop in the microwave for 30 seconds – the slightly warm cookie tastes very nice.

Enjoy!
