Goodbye gluten—hello holidays! If you think you can't enjoy your favorite holiday baked goods anymore, well, think again. Gluten-free baking expert Jeanne Sauvage has perfected 60 recipes that taste so delicious you'll swear the gluten is still there.
Gluten-Free Baking for the Holidays makes it easy to bake up homemade treats that let everyone indulge in the festivities. From savory Cheese Straws perfect for party snacks and light and airy Dinner Rolls to classic desserts like Apple-Cinnamon Pie and crispy Candy Cane Cookies, each decadent cake, pie, cookie, bread, and special dessert has been taste tested by the author (gluten-intolerant herself), her family, and a veritable army of her gluten-sensitive friends. Rugelach for Hanukah, Benne Cookies for Kwanzaa and a traditional Bûche de Nöel for Christmas, there are plenty of choices here for everyone to celebrate.
Complete with a list of sources for finding essential gluten-free ingredients including flours (brown rice, tapioca, and more) and xantham gum, plus the recipe for Jeanne's personally developed all-purpose flour mixture, Gluten-Free Baking for the Holidays will make your holiday baking very merry indeed.
Jeanne Sauvage writes the popular blog The Art of Gluten-Free Baking. Since discovering she was gluten-intolerant after the birth of her child 11 years ago, she has devoted herself to investigating and developing new gluten-free recipes that taste just as great as those with wheat. Her philosophy is that it's not enough to bake gluten-free, the recipe needs to be delicious or what's the point? She lives in Seattle.
