Last night I decided to celebrate...by baking Gluten Free Sugar Cookies! I just thought of Megan's 'You might be a food blogger if' posts. You might be a food blogger if you celebrate success by baking cookies and using new sprinkles you're really excited about!
What was I celebrating? Good question! I was celebrating THIS BLOG! Yesterday my blog hit 5,000 views! :) I was SO excited!! I knew I wanted to do something special, so I broke out the good stuff: Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix. MMMmmmmm I figured what better way to say Thank You to all of you for reading, than beautiful, edible, sparkly cookies?!
However, these are just any sprinkles. They are Sparkling Sugar by India Tree. I went into a grocery store yesterday called The Fresh Market. (I'm not going to link it, here's why:) They had NOTHING gluten free. (Other than the "duh's" like veggies) Their store was literally brimming with beautiful holiday goodies and NOT one was gluten free. Not one cookie, coffee cake, or fresh bread. Not even a premade muffin mix or pancake! So when I stumbled upon these beautiful sprinkles, I couldn't resist!
Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix is so good! If you haven't tried it, get some today! I have to add just a splash more liquid than it calls for, but other than that it's super simple! I also use real milk instead of rice milk. Because of my wonky stove, I bake the cookies at 325 for 10 minutes and check the bottom for browning. Once brown, I have to broil the tops for a bit. It's totally worth it!!
The White Christmas Tree is my Favorite!
But the Snowflakes are pretty too!Parrish Decorated this Gingerbread Man. He named him Leroy! So cute!
So Thank You so much to all of you! Just like these sugar cookies, having awesome readers like you makes me feel less alone in my gluten free life. I feel more like an adventurer, cooking not only for myself and my family, but for all of you too!
