Holiday Food Fest!

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Welcome to our third week of the Holiday Food Fest! If you missed the last two weeks, I shared frosted pumpkin bars and what our Thanksgiving menu will include this year.

This week we are covering Ideas for Edible Gifts.

This year our family will be making nut butter cookies, cut-out cookies and chocolate chip cookies.

Every year I make cookies with my children and share the cookies with friends and family. I purchase cookie tins on "black Friday" every year.

In addition this year I will be hosting a Gluten Free cookie exchange at our gluten free event, it will take place on December 19th 2009 at 2 PM in West Lawn, Pa. If you are local to our area, we would love for you to join us.

If anyone has any yummy "recipes" Gluten Free Chocolate Chip and/or cut out cookies that you would like to share with us please leave me a comment.

One of our recipes we will be using this year:

Gluten Free Nut Butter Cookies – nobody misses the "Gluten"


  • 1 ½ cups Natural Almond or Peanut Butter (or mixed)
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed firmly
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon GF baking soda

  • Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and move rack to middle setting.

  • Mix nut butters, sugar, egg, and baking soda.

  • Scoop into heaping teaspoons and roll into balls.

  • Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and press with fork to get the traditional PB Cookie look.

  • Bake for 9 minutes or until slightly dry looking.

    This "should" make 45 peanut butter bite-sized cookies.

    45 calories each

    Make sure to head over to Cents to Get Debt Free and link your Edible Gift or just leave a comment.

    I've made these with peanut butter, but never thought of using almond butter. I'm going to give it a try since my husband can't eat peanuts.

    Sounds good! I've never made these before.

    My PB cookie recipe is almost the same except I add 1/2 tsp vanilla and leave them on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes. I haven't tried them with almond butter or sun butter yet, but want to. :-) Mixed sounds neat, too.
