Gluten-Free Citrus Cookies

Ok. I admit it. I probably will never be able to eat gluten in large quantities again. I suffered with a horrid headache for 7 hours this morning from eating something that had gluten in it. And by something I mean chorizo that I thought was gluten-free. One of the things I’ve missed the most is something sweet now and then, so I played with the following recipe and found it to be every bit as good as cookies prepared with wheat.


1 1/2 cups gluten-free baking/pancake mix, 3 tbsp dried orange peel, 1/3 cup sugar. Add 1/3 shortening or butter – blend in with pastry blender. Add 1 egg and 1/4 cup orange juice. Drop by spoonfuls and bake at 375F until darkly browned on edges. Remove and let sit until cool. Will still be chewy in the center.
