Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

I do not post many recipes anymore; however, today I am sharing a fantastic flourless peanut butter cookie recipe. It is a perfect Christmas cookie for us gluten-free folks. This cookie is based on a recipe that I found on a now-defunct forum years ago. It has no flour or butter and yet is light and tender and delicious. 🙂

*I am reviving this recipe because I found it while I was preparing the menu for the week. I can’t believe that I haven’t made it in such a long time because it used to be one of our favorites! I have a gluten-free pie crust in the freezer so I think I will make it tonight. 🙂

This is my go-to recipe for tuna casserole (a.k.a. pie), which I owe to my friend, Katie. It is absolutely one of my family’s favorite recipes!

: Tuna Pie Casserole
  • 2 cans tuna, drained
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/3 cup green onion (scallions), green parts only, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 uncooked deep-dish pie shell (I usually use the ones from the frozen section)
  1. Mash tuna in small bowl.
  2. Combine mayo, milk, eggs, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Beat until smooth.
  3. Add tuna, cheese, onion, salt and pepper to above mixture and mix to combine.
  4. Pour into an uncooked pie shell.
  5. Bake in a preheated, 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until browned and set.
  6. Let sit 3-5 minutes before cutting and serve.
  • To prevent contents from pie shell over-flowing into the oven, put filled pie on a cookie sheet before putting in oven.
  • Sometimes I will put this together in the morning and then refrigerate until ready to bake off for dinner.

The BEST Gluten-Free Waffles

I had a different post planned for today, and I haven’t posted a recipe in a long while, but I HAD to share this recipe with my gluten-free readers.

GFwaffles

Here’s the back story: Recently, we watched an episode of Master Chef and one of the challenges required the contestants to make a ramped-up version of chicken and waffles. This piqued Andrew’s interest and he asked me to make it, too.

Well, I’ve tried a few gluten-free pancake recipes that were “just okay” so I was leery about making waffles. However, I went ahead and started poking around online for a recipe. Lo and behold, I came across this King Arthur pancake/waffle recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand, and even had the King Arthur brand of gluten-free flour in my pantry.

I followed the waffle directions exactly, including the 15 minute wait time, and oh my goodness, the waffles were PERFECT! Seriously, they are THE BEST waffle recipe I have tried so far. Andrew didn’t know they were gluten-free until he saw me making one for myself.

Whether you are gluten-free or not, I highly recommend you try these waffles. (Heads up, though, they do require xanthium gum, so you may want to purchase some before trying this recipe. I suppose you can try it without the xanthium gum but I imagine that the texture and fluffiness of the recipe may be affected.)

If you do make this recipe, do let me know how they turn out. Also, do you have your own pancake/waffle recipe that you love? Do share in the comments. I may be willing to give it a try, even if this one may be hard to beat. 🙂
