Food Favorites: December

This month has been all about holiday sweets. Here’s what we’ve been nom-ing on:

These Hello Dollies, which I shared the recipe for just a few days ago! You’re welcome 🙂

Gluten-Free Hello Dollies | Trés Belle

I made these gluten-free gingerbread bars for my work holiday party and topped them off with this easy peasy 2-ingredient white chocolate buttercream. Unfortunately I grossly under-baked them and they did not look presentable enough to take to the party, so I enjoyed more than my fair share at home. They are amazing and oh-so-festive. Just be sure to check with a toothpick before deeming them done.

These snicker-chip-doodles. Yum yum yum so much sugary, cinnamon-y flavor. Y’all know I love trashing things up, so I was all about throwing extra goodies into the snickerdoodle batter. I used a gluten-free all purpose flour mix in lieu of the regular white flour. I also subbed cinnamon chips for the toffee chips because I couldn’t find toffee flavored chips at the store.

Christmas Trash (aka homemade snack mix). Sorry, can’t share the recipe….it’s a family secret that has been entrusted to my husband from his father. The original recipe is sadly not gluten-free, but hubs made a GF version all for me. Love that man.

And in non-junk food news, I have been loving Dr. Praeger’s Sweet Potato Cakes, Spinach Cakes, and Root Vegetable Cakes. ‘Cause ain’t nobody got extra time to cook this month, but we’re still trying to get our veggies and occasionally eat healthy. Also, my acupuncturist recommended I eat sweet potatoes regularly to help with some of my digestive issues, and I am pleased to report that they do seem to be making a difference! Who knew?

What have y’all been loving lately? Any amazing gluten-free sweets recipes to share with another GF sistah?

xoxo Laura
