As I type, my mind is racing with the "to do's" that this time of year brings. Shopping for gifts...check. Christmas cards...check. Attending holiday parties and programs at the kids' schools...check. And, last but not least, baking "safe" goodies to have on hand for all of the family gatherings that we'll be attending over the next couple of weeks...check!
This month's newsletter is dedicated to holiday baking. When I was growing up, my mom would bake several varieties of cookies during this season. And yes, her love of baking obviously rubbed off on me! We had our favorites that were only made at Christmastime. Spritz cookies, sugar cookie cut outs, rosettes, fudge and peanut butter blossoms were among them. It just seems like something is missing without these small pieces of family tradition present during this season.
The recipes below are mostly recipes that I have adapted to be "safe" for my sons (dairy, egg, peanut and wheat free). Most of them can be made free of the top 8 (when using the right substitutions). My family and I have had fun carrying on the tradition of holiday baking. I hope your family enjoys these goodies, too!
I want to wish you a joyful holiday season and a blessed new year. Thanks for all of your kind words about Eating With Food Allergies and suggestions for making it even better. I truly enjoy sharing how my family is eating with food allergies with all of you!
