Lactose and Gluten Free vanilla cookies

DSCF5806

With food allergies appearing to be on the increase, I thought it was high time that I started to work on a few allergen free recipes. One of the ladies who attends my sugarcraft class is gluten intolerant, since I always provide cake or cookies to my sugarcraft class I felt really mean giving Holly shop bought gluten-free food.  In addition my son’s best friend, Lisa has recently been diagnosed as lactose intolerant. Lisa regularly eats with us so I have had to radically rethink my menus.

Gluten free flour is readily available in most supermarkets these days as is lactose free milk and cheese. This recipe uses a vegetable oil based margarine and gluten-free self-raising flour. The resulting biscuit is crisp on the outside and soft inside.

Ingredients

  • 100g vegetable oil based margarine
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 200g gluten-free self raising flour
  • 1 tbs golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C / 170C fan or gas mark 5
  2. Put all the ingredients in a food mixer and mix to a smooth dough
  3. Form into 16 small balls.
  4. Flatten them with your hand and place on 2 baking trays, allowing room for spreading.
  5. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until pale gold in colour
  6. Allow to cool slightly on the tray before moving to a rack to cool completely.
