Glutenfree Vanilla Biscuits

dsc00755

These glutenfree vanilla biscuits just taste amazing and they are quite easy to bake. If you want, you can add come lemon zest to the batter. But here is how you make them.

Ingredients

50 g. almonds

200 g. butter

175 g. riceflour

75 g. potatoflour (but you can also use 75g. rice flour instead)

1 vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder (not vanilla sugar)

125 g. cane-sugar

1 egg

Instructions

First you soak the almonds in boiled water and remove the skin. Chop the almonds with a knife or using a knife or an electrical chopper. Crumble the cold butter into the flour. Mix the remaining ingredients in and assemble the dough with the egg. Place the dough in the fridge for an hour to set and harden. Ideally form wreaths either using a biscuit-maker or cookie press, or using a normal piping bag. But you can also decide to just make them into circles. Bake them at 180 degrees celsius for 8 minutes (convection oven) or 200 degrees celsius in a conventional oven (approximately 350-360 degrees Fahrenheit). Vanilla Wreaths should be light in colour, so make sure they don’t get too dark in colour. Let them cool on a wire rack before you put them in one of your favourite christmassy cake tins or eat them with a cup of christmas-tea.

Delicious Date Balls

Dadelkugler Some weeks ago I was standing in my kitchen and looking at some date-paste my fiancé was given as a present for Christmas together with some other delicious things.

Standing there, I was wandering what I could use this for and this is the way I came up with this recipe:

Delicious Energy Date Balls
1 dl pecan nuts / brazil nuts
3/4 dl glutenfree fine rolled oats
2-3 tsp date paste
cocoa-powder

  1. Come the nuts and oats in a chopper, which can grind it to a flour-like consistency.
  2. Pour the ‘flour’ into a bowl.
  3. Add the date-paste and mix it all together to a soft dough.
  4. Use a teaspoon to take the right amount of dough up from the bowl and form it into a ball.
  5. Make all the balls and place them on a plate.
  6. On another plate you’ll pour out cocoa powder and roll the balls in it until they’re fully covered.
  7. Set the balls aside or put them into the fridge to soak up the cocoa powder.
  8. Eat them.

Keep them in the fridge and eat them within 5 days.

Please comment if you try to make these.
