Yesterday's baking was for BakingGALS. A group that I just joined. I will do a final post later when I get the projects packaged up for sending. Basically I have joined two teams this month. Each team has a different soldier assignment so now I have a way to send baked goods!
I am very new to BakingGALS but really enjoying the experience so far.
There is such a demand for gluten free in this area. Now I am not a gluten free kitchen so for some allergies, despite cooking gluten free first, I will not be able to accommodate. Basically, I wanted to play with recipes!
Recipes for this experiment:
Soft Chocolate-Chip Macadamia Cookies (second recipe this week banished to my growing list of desserts to only make when I am ready for massive consumption...they are unbelievably addictive)
Flourless Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies
Flourless Chocolate-Chip Cookies (Personal staple)
So first I tried the flourless oatmeal raisin substituting a little less than 3/4 oat flour for the rolled oats. They were fine, but I didn't love them. Photo above.
I am scrapping the oat flour option. And I returned to what I knew works.
I now officially have 3, all gluten free ingredients recipes planned for my local bake sale. Baked in a non-gluten free kitchen! :) We will talk about the third later...also banished to my list. It has been a rough week.
mint chocolate chip ice cream for cookie eating later.
Quilt Festival is over and I didn't win. :) HOWEVER, I already met some great people and great sites so no complaints.
Favorite line from her post: "...and get yourself a prize if you didn’t win." Needless to say I have been on vendor sites most of the morning!
