Yesterday I was trying to find a new way to make some of my favorite things. I was contemplating different combinations, varying shapes and textures, flours with more fiber. Gluten-free oatmeal snacks with walnuts instead of pecans. Bars instead of cookies.
To prove the concept that gluten-free cooking is attractive to more people than just celiacs, consider the simple Peanut Butter Cookie.
Sweet, tender, rich and a little crunchy, it’s a favorite of many who have no intention of eating anything gluten-free.
“Yum!” I heard as I was setting up a photo of the Butterscotch Bars I’d just baked. I turned around to see my husband grabbing a whole handful of them from the pan as he was finishing his first mouthful. He’s usually not so interested in my gluten-free cookies, but these really were outstanding.
