Happy Halloween Bubble Children! It has been some time, and we have had many exciting projects in the works here at Bubble Child headquarters! (Hence the months-long absence.) The new web-site is about reading to be shared, and the first episodes of the Bubble Child cooking show have been shot and I am rather thrilled to share with you first!
In the spirit of one of my favorite holidays, and one that I still celebrate as an expat over here in Paris as you should (costumes, cookies, festivities, yup!), it’s my pleasure to share with you the pilot Bubble Child episode: GLUTEN-FREE HALLOWEEN COOKIES
Check it out here : YOUTUBE!
Gluten- and Dairy-Free
3/4 cup + 2 tbs. millet flour
1/2 cup + 1 tbs. buckwheat flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/3 tsp. agar agar
1 cup xylitol or 2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup + 2 tbs. margarine or butter (non-hydrogenated margarine)
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
+cookie cutter or your choice
+extra flour for preparation
preparation time: 10 minutes
cook time: 10-12 minutes
Yields about 1 dozen large cookies, 2 dozen small
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat, or lightly grease.
2. Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and sea salt. Set aside.
3. Combine all dry ingredients with a whisk. Set aside.
4. Cream eggs into wet mixture until homogenous. Add dry ingredients. Mix until dough is consistent in texture and is not too sticky. If it’s too sticky, add a bit more flour.
5. Place dough in refrigerator as you clean off your work space to roll it out. Generously flour the surface with gluten-free flour.
6. Remove dough from fridge, and roll out a half of it to desired thickness (this will depend on your cookie mold or personal preferences.) Punch out molds, and transfer, with a spatula, to prepared baking sheet. Finish with the rest of the dough.
7. Bake cookies for about 10-12 minutes, depending on their thickness and your oven.
8. Remove, let cool, and save for about 2-3 days. Dough can be frozen, same with the cookies.
