for cookies that are gluten and casein (wheat and dairy) free!

I'm part of my school's PTA and they want to make puzzle piece cookies for part of the Walk Now for Autism kickoff at our school. I already have the cookie cutter and have messed around with different ways to use RI to decorate them, but a small population of ours is on a special diet and we want to make sure we have some cookies they can have as well.

I know finding really good gf/cf foods is difficult, so I thought I'd ask here for ideas!

A more descriptive subject heading would better help others help you. icon_smile.gif Several people have recently asked about "good tasting" cookie recipes.

I checked and found this one. I've not tried it myself, but I have used other recipes from this site and they were successful. They also have a list of "safe" ingredients.

Also, check your local health food stores, they might carry a G-F cookie mix.

thanks for the suggestions, both about making posts clearer and where to look!

I think I might've come off a little snarky in my reply. Sorry about that. icon_redface.gif My point was that people might be overlooking your post thinking someone else doesn't like the NFSC recipe or whatever.

I can't find the thread, but gluten-free cookies were discussed recently. No guarantees, but if you re-post your question, those ladies might have a better answer for you than I did.

I make my cookies using margarine with no problem and use butter flavoring instead of vanilla. Sorry i don't know much about gluten free.

Honeydukes, you weren't snarkey...and I do appreciate the suggestions. I haven't posted much, especially starting new threads, and I should have made my subject more clear. I did see a gf post and I pm'ed someone who helped me greatly. (Although I don't remember who off the top of my head...but I did send her a thank you pkm!)

I posted a peanut butter cookie with no flour on CC. I do know these taste good but I am not sure how they would taste with RI on them. Here are the ingredients for more of the recipe you can find it on CC, sorry I don't have the link on hand!
1 egg
1 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup of sugar

You can order gluten free sugar cookie dough from this gluten free bread company..

Not sure if you want to order the dough, but thought I would post it!

I agree with Honeydukes. I opened this with a minute to kill, thinking it as NFSC related and it is entirely different (that happens icon_smile.gif ). It looks like you have some good responses, but if you want more people to see it and help, I would call it something like "Need wheat and dairy free rolled cookie recipes please". This way it will catch the neccessary people's eye immediately. Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif My son's class had a little girl who had a wheat allergy and I always made meringues for her, but your idea to actually find a cookie recipe is just wonderful!
