We hit $3,000 on Kickstarter, so here’s #3!!

First, I wanted to let you know we have 3 days left, and only $1,660 away from our goal. PLEASE help spread the word. Anything gets us closer to our goal.

I wanted to share a really good recipe with you all since we are so close to reaching our goal. This is a recipe I learned to make (non-vegan) when I was a baby and we make it every year for Christmas. It’s tradition. No biscotti, no Christmas. This is my vegan, gluten free version of the cookie that taught me to bake. I hope you all love it as much as I do.

Christmas Biscotti

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1 lb. all-purpose GF flour mix (with xanthan gum)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 oz.  vegan shortening
2 tablespoons Earth Balance

Mix all these together like a pie crust.

1 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Add these to the “pie crust” mix. Knead until shine-y.

Roll into thick snakes. Cut into slices about half inch thick with a butter knife. Bake for about 10-15 minutes.

Frosting:
8 oz (half bag) of powdered sugar
1/2 stick of butter
1/4 tablespoon vanilla or ameretto (or a million other flavors)
2/3 cups soy milk (?)

Whip up until well mixed. Dip tops of cooled cookies.

Hello. My name is Amanda. I'm one year gluten free, and can honestly say it's been a long time since I felt this good. This change was not by choice. When I first had the suspicion I needed to switch, I was so upset. You see, I LOVE to bake. I bake bread. I bake cupcakes. When the holidays roll around, I bake cookies like a fiend. I thought I would have to give all that up, and well, I really didn't want that to happen. But then I started researching and shopping and realized that I wouldn't be missing out on all that much. As it turns out, some of my already favorite foods are already Gluten Free! So when a doctor told me I needed to make the big change, I wasn't nearly as upset as expected. In fact, I was motivated. This was my new challenge. I'd been baking vegan for a while already, so Gluten Free should be no problem. My goal is to make (and photograph, as that is my another love) delicious Gluten Free goodies that EVERYONE, even those who can still have gluten can enjoy.
