You may not know this about me but I am a SERIOUS sprinkle collector. When traveling here in the US and even more so when traveling out of the country, I always check out the local grocery store for different sprinkles.
With the upcoming Halloween holiday, I thought I would try baking some gluten free sugar cookies….a dangerous feat…as baking with gluten free flours can be a challenge. Why gluten free? Well, many of my blog followers are on a special diet [low FODMAP diet] to help with their digestive symptoms and wheat is pretty much a no-no. The low FODMAP diet incorporates some gluten free products because wheat contains both gluten and FODMAPs–so there is some overlap with these 2 diets.
So I got out my gluten free King Arthur flour and added traditional sugar cookie ingredients–confectioner’s sugar, an egg, almond and vanilla extract and a wee bit of potato starch and of course butter.
To create some spooky cookies, I added some eye balls. Every cookie deserves a couple eyeballs—more or less. These eyeballs are low in FODMAPs and gluten free!
I called Wilton, the manufacturer.

Meet my scary cookies! Boo!
Halloween should be fun for everyone–even on a low FODMAP diet or gluten free diet!
