Gluten Free is Life

I am a gluten-free wife, runner & blogger with two children in Columbus, Ohio. After my celiac diagnosis in 2006, I have made it my mission to embrace an entirely new approach to nutrition in a gluten-free world, exploring options that run the gamut from “made from scratch” homemade bread to sampling and reviewing the gluten-free prepared foods that are continuously being introduced to the market. While navigating the waters of becoming gluten-free, I share my experiences and pass along valuable product reviews in addition to helping other moms of celiac kids develop healthy menus that are kid-friendly and palatable. I feel that I am a valuable resource for those who are newly diagnosed, as well as for the more seasoned gluten-free veterans.

Simple Gluten-Free Sandwich Cookies 

Wednesday, June 22, 2011 11:30:10 AM


I received some complimentary mixes courtesy of MyBlogspark recently and decided to get creative yesterday with the cookie mix. Jon had been asking for cookies,so I made sure to get the butter out to soften as soon as I got up. One of the things I love about this mix is how simple it is. You add butter,1 egg and 1 tsp of vanilla. That is it. If you don’t want to keep a supply of gluten-free flours,baking soda,baking powder and xanthan gum around,this is the way to go. Perfect for college students!


Then I considered sandwiching ice cream between 2 cookies,but didn’t want to soften the ice cream,refreeze,etc. I remembered I had some frosting in the pantry! Perfect!


I don’t normally use pre-made frosting,I make my own. However,there is a place for convenience,and this was the place. Best thing about these Betty Crocker frostings is the label – clearly marked “gluten-free”.


I smeared some frosting on the bottom of a cookie.


And then I sandwiched the other cookie on top. 


Jon proclaimed this “awesome”,so it must be a keeper of an idea! 

I only made one cookie like this,just in case Jon didn’t like them. I stuck the remaining frosting in the refrigerator. I plan on making the rest of the cookies into sandwiches later today. I do have a problem,though,there is an odd number of cookies. Winking smile Guess that means I’ll have to eat the leftover cookie. I hate when that happens.
