Gluten free pumpkin cookies

Gluten free pumpkin cookies

Another great recipe to make with a pumpkin is cookies. The thing when you cook your own, is that you will get the taste you want from it because you control the cooking. It’s also a nice cookie recipe to put on your Thanksgiving table or you can even bring it as a  gift to someone who’s gluten intolerant.

There are things you have to verify though when you cook for others.

  • Make sure your tools are really well washed and that there are no cross contamination with wheat flour or products that contain gluten.
  • Use certified gluten-free ingredients. Even spices may contain gluten, so double check.

There is one thing for sure, it’s that the person who will receive this gift will really appreciate it.

  1. Where do you get your sorghum flour? I can’t always find it in my stores and when i do it is quite pricey per pound. Love what you did with the cookies though and can understand why they disappear.

    • I got it at my natural food store. It is a bit pricey but I combine it with other flours. Have you compared with Amazon.com? Sometimes they have good prices. Thanks for your comment!
