I don't make anything too healthy when baking for Christmas! I have a cookie recipe from my mom that is sugar free, loaded with fruit and veggies, and AWESOME... But I just have her make them. LOL!
All my stuff has cream cheese, lotsa sugar, crumbles, and just some goopy goodness!
Oh my, that's the best type of treat. The goopier the better!
I'll get photos ONCE I GET ON IT!!
Anyone else use a cookie press? I love those things!
Somewhere I do have a cookie press. Back when I would make hundreds of cookies for the holidays, it was a lifesaver!
*looks around behind her*
I didn’t think anyone could possibly want a gluten free recipe, except perhaps another deprived person like myself.
I think Jassabel had something about Black forest Cake…mmmmm now that sounds good!
Ok, sweet potato bread…
Well um since I‘m sure you don‘t have the wonky flours that I have to use on hand, find your favorite banana bread recipe-
1. Instead of mashed bananas, use mashed sweet potatoes.
Fresh baked are best, but canned work ok too. Add water or molasses (see below) for the right “mashed” consistency.
2. Whatever the sugar amount calls for, use half of that in white sugar and half of that in light brown sugar or slenda brown sugar.
3. Add an extra glob of molasses for golden richness. Tablespoon or two is good if not already used in potatoes.
4. Add in some apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice for a tiny bit of zip, or just some cinnamon and nutmeg to your tastes, and bake according to banana bread directions.
(I know, I know… very difficult with all the precise measurements and such.
We also really like pumpkin or sweet potato pancakes too. Healthy for kiddo but still rich and yummy like banana bread.
The fudge on the other hand, well it is part of my livelihood and folks pay me ridiculous amounts of money for it, so that recipe is in the vault.
QOS- I think the chicken platter ideas is the bomb!
