Living without gluten can be hardest at the holidays or when celebrating. Feeling left out of the festivities is no fun, especially for the young and sociable. Johnna Wright-Perry , gluten-free blogger at In Johnna's Kitchen has created a gluten-free cut-out sugar cookie that will bring the fun back to seasonal celebrations. She has graciously shared the recipe from her new cookbook. See my review of her cookbook in a previous post. I tried Johnna’s recipe using Earth Balance spread to make the cookies dairy free. As I was preparing to bake, I realized the recipe called for guar gum and I had none. A quick online search suggested xanthan gum as a substitute. I knew it worked in Johnna’s gluten-free Raspberry Shortbread Bars and I liked the texture of that, so I used ½ teaspoon of xanthan gum just as that recipe did. I found the texture and ease of rolling out and cutting the dough was very satisfying and not unlike gluten recipes. I asked Johnna why she used guar gum and she says some people can taste an ‘off’ after taste with xanthan gum in some recipes. I couldn’t taste anything, but your taste buds may vary.
