Dad called Aunt Debbie on Christmas while at our house. It was so nice to “talk” to her for a few minutes. While talking, she mentioned that she was making some candy with a granddaughter. Aunt Debbie gave us her recipe to make the candy also.
Use gluten free Crispy Rice and be sure all your ingredients are gluten free if you want to make them just like Aunt Debbie does.
We have made buckeyes before, but we really like this version with the Crispy Rice. I think it may be our new favorite way to make these treats.
We had a friend come over who does not eat gluten or dairy. So we adapted a favorite breakfast recipe for her. It was slightly sweeter than the original, but still very good. For her, we made a quarter recipe and cooked it in a smaller casserole dish.
We have many friends with food allergies. We were looking for a good dessert recipe that we could share at potlucks that was gluten free, egg free and dairy free. These are simple cookies to make and they taste great!
Andrea commented that she really wanted tiramisu for dessert. We looked in three stores before finding lady finger cookies. We did not find gluten free ones at all. So we decided to try to make our own.
The recipe we tried was very easy. The cookies crisped up and are wonderful for dunking in hot drinks or just eating plain.
I discovered some date sugar at a discount store and really wanted to try it. I had read that you could interchange it with brown sugar, but it did not mix in as well as regular sugar did.
We decided to start with our favorite cookies and experiment. The cookies are soft and cake like, but very good! I thought they were a little to sweet, so next time I will reduce the sugars. But everyone else thought they were perfect.
These cookies work well with regular flour if you do not want them gluten free.
