Gluten Free GingerBread People with Egg Free Royal Icing
Posted Dec 18 2009 9:29am
I have decided to take it easy on myself this year. I realized that I just don't have the time or the energy to make a ginger bread house, then I patted myself on the back and said "that's OK". However, I did still want to post my egg-free royal icing recipe, so we decided to make gingerbread people instead. For this I did not even need to create a recipe, I borrowed this wonderful recipe from Janeen at Mom's Food Allergy Diner , which is egg free, dairy free, gluten free, and nut free. I didn't have any Bette Hagman's Gourmet Light Flour Blend so I had to play with the flours a little bit. My final flour blend was1 ½ c Sorghum flour 1 c Tapioca starch 1 ½ c Rice flour ½ c Cornstarch ½ c Potato flour This is a whole cup more flour than the original recipe called for, but it worked well for us. It could be the humidity or the altitude, who knows. After baking the gingerbread people, the girls decorated them with egg-free royal icing . So, here are our little gingerbread people (the ones who haven't been eaten yet) saying "Merry Christmas everyone"!
