Lemony Rolled Sugar Cookies

My friend Jessica came over a few weeks ago and asked me to help her make gluten free sugar cookies.  What we came up with was a soft, chewy cookie with crisp edges from rolling them in sugar before baking.  They’re light, sweet, and fluffy with a bit of tang from the addition of cream cheese and from lemon juice.  They’re perfect to brighten up a winter day (probably even better for spring and summer…let’s face it, they’re amazing year round).  Click through for the recipe.

Jesicakes Gluten Free Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Cranberries and White Chocolate Chips

New post over at my blog!  Go check it out!  These cookies started off for a party a few years ago and I recently made them gluten free (they work great too with all purpose flour, just substitute all the gluten free flours and xanthan gum for 2 cups flour).  They’re my favourite cookie I make, so go check it out and try the recipe yourselves!

Peppermint vs. Andes Mints Fudge Cookie Bake Off - Peppermint Bark Cookie Recipe

For this version, I added crushed Peppermints to the mix for a lingering, warm, almost spice from the peppermint.  The peppermint adds a great crunch within the cookie.  And the white chocolate chips add a creamy, smooth, sweet balance to the peppermint and completes the peppermint bark effect of the cookies.  Make sure to check out the Andes Mints Fudge Cookie, and try both of them out yourself to see which you prefer!!
