Randomness on a Tuesday
Gluten Free Blondie recipe that was based on the Toll House cookie recipe. You read that right.. it was like a thick, chewy, cookie in brownie form. I was a little nervous when I measured out my first cup of flour and felt how heavy it was... but people. These were delicious, and there was no xanthan gum which pleases me as well. Now I'm not one of those people who's going to go out and buy all sorts of mixes and products and stuff just because they are gluten free. I didn't eat a lot of deserts before and I rarely if ever eat boxed or processed foods (although I do miss those delicious crispy wheat crackers and honey graham sticks that Back to Nature makes), so I'm not going to start now. I just want a handful of really GOOD gluten free deserts that I can make if we are having company for dinner, or have to go somewhere (my next challenge is to find a good biscuit recipe for shortcake). I want a few good recipes for bread, or pancakes or banana muffins. Something a little different for breakfast, or if I am really craving toast or a sandwich. I'm starting to think that maybe, just maybe.. I can make this work.
