gluten free snickerdoodles

This last weekend we were at a workshop for my Beloved.  I wrote about it a little bit yesterday.  I realized that we had eaten all our snack food on the trip over.  Snack food for us was apples and two different type of nut butters.  I decided we needed a bit of snacky food for the way home.  

The Tall Short Person had leant me a copy of the Halloween version of Martha Stewart.  There was a snickerdoodle recipe in there that I decide sounded like a lovely thing for a dessert after lunch and the drive home.  I just turned it into gluten free.  I am going to try the Boston Cream Pie in there soon.  It has pumpkin in it!


Note:  Adapted from Martha Stewart Halloween 2011.  If you wish to use wheat flour, use 1 3/8 cup.

82 grams almond flour

82 grams sorghum flour

82 grams teff flour

82 grams arrowroot flour

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons

1 egg

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

2 teaspoons butter

Cream the butter and 3/4 cup sugar together.  Mix in the egg.  Add the flours, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Mix well.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours or over night if you can.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cover a baking sheet with a silpat or parachment paper.  Mix 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon together in a shallow bowl.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator.  Take a teaspoon of dough and roll it in a ball.  Roll it in the sugar cinnamon mixture.  Place on a cookie sheet.  Do this until there are a dozen balls on the sheet.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the edges are golden.  I think they are better on the under done side so try 10 to 12 mintues first.  Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.  Repeat until all the cookies are baked.

So this is a gluten free whole grain snickerdoodle.  Coming from the one who can eat gluten, these are probably the best snickerdoodles I have ever made.  I would continue to make these just this way for everyone.

By the way, they disappeared.
