My doctor told me that if I wanted to stop the constant stomach-ache and bloating, I would need to stop eating dairy and gluten. I have been working on this for the last few months, and I have seen a difference.
Shopping for gluten-free/dairy free products is expensive and not always very tasty. I decided to experiment with some of my time-tested recipes and see if I could make them gluten-free. Here is one of my first and tasty tries.
I love Snickerdoodle cookies. In the past, I used the recipe I found on the Betty Crocker website. This gluten-free recipe for Snickerdoodles is a version of that Betty Crocker recipe. They are tasty, and they would make a great treat to bring to parties. No one needs to know that these cookies are gluten-free. They are so good!
