Description:
These are so delicious no one will ever know the difference. They are easy to make and flatten out all on their own. I use vegetable shortening. You can substitute 2c Gluten Free Baking Mix for the individual flours.

Ingredients:
3/4 c shortening 2 tsp baking soda
1 c sugar 2 tsp xanthan gum
1 egg 1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 c molasses 1 tsp ground ginger
1 3/4 c sorghum flour 1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 c chickpea flour Sugar to coat cookie
2 T sweet rice flour dough balls



Directions:
Cream shortening and sugar. Add egg and molasses. Mix thoroughly. Stir together sorghum flour, chickpea flour, sweet rice flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Stir into the creamed mixture. Refrigerate until firm. About 1 hour. Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, roll in white sugar. Place on a parchment lined or well greases cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Eat fresh or freeze.
Makes 4 dozen small cookies or 3 dozen medium size cookies.

For a change of pace omit the ground ginger and use 2 tsp of cinnamon.

Make the dough balls smaller for more cookies.

Wellness Tip
Garlic
Since 1986, responsible medical journals published 31 studies on how garlic affects blood pressure and cholesterol. Many suggest that garlic lowers both. Experts recommend roughly 1-4 cloves per day for heart-healthy benefits. The final word on garlic awaits even more research, but eating modest amounts seems safe and probably good for us. Try adding garlic to salads, pastas, rice dishes, soups, potatoes, and even sandwiches.

Recipe
Traditional squash casserole with Pomegranate Juice
Category: Main Meals
Description: Acorn squash has a green skin speckled with orange patches and pale yellow-orange flesh, this squash has a unique flavor that is a combination of sweet, nutty and peppery.
I like this recipe as it uses many interesteing ingredients such as pomegranate juice, roasted peppers, Chinese five-spice powder and coconut milk aswell as wells as lots of nuts and seeds. In my garden my acorn squash are just about ready to harvest. I often store them and use later in the winter. At the store, squash is easily prone to decay, so it is important to carefully inspect it before purchase. Choose ones that are firm, heavy for their size and have dull, not glossy, rinds. The rind should be hard as soft rinds may indicate that the squash is watery and lacking in flavor. Avoid those with any signs of decay, which manifest as areas that are water-soaked or moldy.
While we've become accustomed to thinking about leafy vegetables as an outstanding source of antioxidants, we've been slower to recognize the outstanding antioxidant benefits provided by other vegetables like winter squash. But we need to catch up with the times! Recent research has made it clear just how important winter squash is worldwide to antioxidant intake, especially so in the case of carotenoid antioxidants. From South America to Africa to India and Asia and even in some parts of the United States, no single food provides a greater percentage of certain carotenoids than winter squash.
The unique carotenoid content of the winter squashes is not their only claim to fame in the antioxidant department, however. There is a very good amount of vitamin C in winter squash (about one-third of the Daily Value in every cup) and a very good amount of the antioxidant mineral manganese as well. Recent research has shown that the cell wall polysaccharides found in winter squash also possess antioxidant properties, as do some of their phenolic phytonutrients.
It's the combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds in winter squash that have shown this food to have clear potential in the area of cancer prevention and cancer treatment.
