This gluten free snickerdoodle recipe creates the perfect texture in a cookie – crunchy on the outside and chewy inside!
Well, friends, the holidays are coming. We just breezed right by Halloween, didn't we? Now it's time to start planning Thanksgiving dinner, playing Christmas oldies, and finding gifts to put under the tree.
Even though this season makes me feel all warm and glowy, I know it's not like that for everyone. This can be a dark time of the year for so many people. People dealing with loss, military families, people without families, people living away from home, people who don't have homes – the list goes on.
Colorado Springs has an especially large homeless population. There's not enough shelter space. There aren't enough resources. There isn't enough funding. Everyone knows the issue exists but very few people seem to know how to address it. Since moving here last year, I've found myself wondering: "how can I help?" I can't donate money to every organization and I can't invite everyone in for Thanksgiving dinner or for Christmas. But I can bake. And baking is a start.
This holiday season, Bob's Red Mill is encouraging us to bake joy for others. For our friends, for our family, for strangers. It's a simple gesture, yes, but a little can go a long way. Baking is good for your soul and that means it's good for the world.
After we took these pictures and while the gluten free snickerdoodles were still warm, we hurried them over to the Springs Rescue Mission at check-in time. It was a cold day and I hope that the cookies at least warmed up a few bellies.
For these snickerdoodles, we used Bob's Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour because I wanted you to be able to make these for anyone and not have to worry about leaving out someone who has a food allergy. You can use this as a substitute for all purpose or wheat flour in your favorite cookie recipe with equally awesome results! Bob's was kind enough to hook us up with a coupon for $1 off any of their products – making it easier for all of us to spread the love this holiday season.
What are you baking right now? Do you have an awesome pumpkin pie recipe that you're bringing to Thanksgiving? Or do you have a soft and chewy sugar cookie recipe that you bake every year? Tell me about it in the comments!
