They are here, finally! Snickerdoodles. Can you believe that I waited this long to share (on my blog at least) these wonderful Grain Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free cookies? I am totally making these again this week for my man. With Valentine’s day coming up he will love me even more. 🙂
Snickerdoodles just happen to be my husbands favorite cookies. But getting him to like something that is dairy-free, grain-free, and sugar-free is another story. In reality, he does love most of what I make, but thus far, the snickerdoodles have not passed muster, at least not until these bad boys came around.
When working on this series I tried:
- with sugar
- with out sugar
- with dairy
- without dairy
- other grain-free flours like Quinoa flour
Not one was good. In fact, one was so awful, I gagged and threw every last one of the cookies away. My children tried to like them but just couldn’t do it. How sweet those kiddos are! Those cookies were the ones made with Quinoa flour. There was no way my husband was going to taste them.
Had I cajoled him into trying one, he wouldn’t trust me ever again. Down the trash can they went.
But I do not see that as a failure in cooking. I see that as a learning experience. A thing to teach me what works and what doesn’t. I see that I should have gone with my original gut instinct. To stick with almond, flax and coconut flours.
Now, could I make this sugar-free and dairy-free too? That was the next test. He (said hubby) doesn’t always like alternative sweeteners. So that was going to prove to be the most difficult part. The dairy-free part, no big deal, because he usually never knows any how. It is more that it doesn’t always work out like I want it to.
Both things, worked out perfect. In fact, so perfect that he didn’t even know he was eating something without sugar! Wahoo! Score times six! Don’t you just love it when things work out that way? I know I do.
