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.
