Hip hip hooray! Here's a gluten-free baking book just in time for the holidays! All your favorites are here, from cutout cookies and rugelach to bûche de noël and pumpkin pie. No need to miss out on tasty holiday treats this year — Gluten-Free Baking for the Holidays will help fill your cookie tray.
• Who wrote it: Jeanne Sauvage
• Who published it: Chronicle Books
• Number of recipes: 60
• Recipes for right now: All of them! But particularly: Rugelach, Candy Cane Cookies, Cutout Cookies, Gingerbread Cookies, Chocolate-Cherry Biscotti, Bûche de Noël, Fruitcake, Trifle, Pumpkin Pie, Dinner Rolls, Buttermilk Biscuits, Panettone
• Other highlights: Jeanne Sauvage uses the same gluten-free flour mix as the base for all of her recipes, made from brown rice flou, white rice flour, sweet rice flour, tapioca flour, and xanthan gum. This means you can mix up a big batch of flour and then go to town whenever the baking bug strikes without having to pull a dozen small packages out of the cupboard every time. I like the simplicity and mental ease this gives.
I also appreciate that she includes a chapter of savory recipes in the book. Dinner rolls, Thanksgiving stuffing, and scones for breakfast are just as much a part of the holiday food traditions as pie and cookies, after all.
• Who would enjoy this book? People on a gluten-free diet or who are cooking for people on a gluten-free diet.
