Gluten Free Christmas Recipes for a Great Holiday Season.

We have some great gf desserts and gf dishes for your Christmas or New Year’s Table.

I love holidays and I love this time of the year. When you grow up you kind of lose that special, magical feeling during holidays little by little, year after year, but I don’t want that to happen. I want to keep feeling really special during this holiday season.

We can do that with making the table looking very festive and the food dishes should looking irresistible and tasting scrumptious. Yes, we need to stay gluten free but it doesn’t mean can’t have the goodies. That’s right. 




Gluten Free Christmas Ideas:

Let’s get creative and come up with great gluten free Christmas recipes.

The first one would be your Christmas fruits cookies:

You will make about 6 dozen of them:

Ingredients for this gluten free Christmas recipe:

2 and 1/2 cups of Bob’s All Purpose Gluten Free Flour

1 teaspoonful of aluminum free baking soda

1 cup of chopped walnuts

1/2 cup of dried cranberries

1/2 cup of chopped dried pineapple pieces

1 & 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

1 teaspoon of gluten free vanilla extract

3 large eggs

2 cups of Erewhon brown rice cereal

1/3 teaspoonful of kosher salt

Around 2 sticks of softened organic butter

About 1 cup of brown sugar

Directions:

Grease a large cookie sheet.

Take out a waxed paper and combine gluten free flour, aluminum free baking soda, and the salt.

Take out a large bowl and mix butter and sugar until creamy with a mixer.

Mix in gluten free vanilla, then the eggs.

At low speed, gradually add flour mixture; beat just until mixed very well. With a wooden spoon, stir in gluten free cereal, walnuts, cranberries, and 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Drop your dough by small rounded teaspoons, about 1 inch apart, onto cookie sheet.

Bake your fruit cookies for 10-12 minutes or until golden.

Transfer cookies to cool them.

You can do the same with the remaining dough.

Melt the remaining half cup of chocolate chips in a small pot. Stir it well all the time; until smooth.

Place fruit cookies on waxed paper;

Spritz with the melted chocolate on top.

When that chocolate is all set enjoy them until nothing is left:)

Gluten Free Christmas Ideas.

There's another gluten free Christmas dessert option.

Gluten Free Panettone.

Ingredients for this gluten free Christmas recipe:

4 cups of all-purpose gluten free flour like Bob’s

half cup of plain yogurt (read the labels to make sure its gluten free)

1 cup of warm water

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 teaspoonful of gluten free vanilla extract like Organics

3 medium free roaming, organic eggs

1 package of active dry yeast (read labels for gluten free companies)

1 tablespoonful of grated lemon zest

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

1/4 cup of black organic raisins

1 tablespoonful of confectioners' sugar (read the labels for gluten free companies)

1 tablespoonful of melted butter

some butter for greasing

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine sugar, water and the yeast. Close the lid and let it do its work. This should take approximately 10 to 12 minutes. The mixture becomes pretty foamy. Now combine gluten free vanilla extract, yogurt, sea salt, eggs and that lemon zest. You can use Vitamix to mix it well. Or mix it by hand.

Add the gluten free flour small amounts at a time. As usual the dough needs to be a nice uniform ball.

Place this dough ball on a lightly floured board and start kneading the dough for about 5 to 10 minutes (since this is a gluten free recipe it has more eggs in the ingredients, and you may add more flour here to make it more sticky like the regular gluten containing flour, add in small amount until you are satisfied with a texture).

Place your dough in a large, buttered bowl, top in with a lid and let rise in a warm environment until it goes up two times. This usually takes about 45 to 60 minutes.

At this time preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and get a cake pan ready. Go for a round eight inch cake pan and butter it up.

Mix the raisins and confectioners' sugar in a separate bowl.

Transfer your ball of dough in bowl, and then place it on a floured large. Mix the fruit into the dough.

Mix it back into the ball. Transfer to that buttered cake pan. Place a clean light towel over it, and let it rise for another 25 to 30 minutes.

Brush the top of the panettone with prepared melted butter.

Bake this beauty for around 45 minutes; or until it is a golden brown. Try the toothpick technique to see if it’s ready.

You can dust it with powdered sugar or sprinkle with melted chocolate.

Enjoy!

And you know what? If you don’t feel like baking you could buy a gluten free Panettone in your nearest supermarket. Many good supermarkets are keeping up with gluten free needs now. I got this one! I'll let you know if it was good:-)
