Print Friendly 

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
Stretch Your Back
Begin on your hands and knees. Slide your hands and arms out in front of you so that your torso forms one long sloping line from your fingertips to your tailbone. Breathe smoothly; reach forward with your fingertips while you keep your hips in line with your knees. Hold for about 30 seconds. Relax and then repeat. If you have back problems, first consult the professional who treats you before performing this stretch.

Easy RAW Cherry Soup (a seasonal delight)
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Cherries can be sweet or sour, red or black. My favorite varieties are the big black ones. We used to enjoy “Bing” cherries I commonly now see a variety called “Lapins”. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. Anthocyanins are also potent antioxidants. In addition, they appear to significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Cherries are considered a warm food and are great for increasing circulation. They make an excellent detoxifying food, helping the body eliminate uric acid and cleanse the kidneys. They contain ellagic acid, an anticancer compound. So, not only do they taste fabulous, they are also very healthy. A word of caution, cherries are considered to be part of the “”Dirty Dozen” when it comes to fruits and vegetables that have been found to contain the highest levels of pesticide residues. So, it is vitally important to choose only organically grown cherries. They may be considerably more expensive, but your health is worth every extra penny you spend.
Fresh cherries are best stored in a bag in the fruit drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be pitted and frozen into serving sized portions.
