I am so happy Fall is here, it is my favorite time of year!
It means (generally) cooler weather, hot home cooked meals from scratch.
Yesterday after work, I made lentils and homemade easy artisan bread.
I wasn’t super tired when I started in on my cooking and baking, but by the time I was done I was exhausted. I had also been up since 4 am.
I am so excited for this fall and all the homemade food I will hopefully be making this autumn!
Today I spent part of my day baking cookies. After my mom gave me a pathetic look and asked me to make oatmeal raisin cookies, I did that today. I also made myself a batch of gluten free, dairy free short bread cookies.
The Shortbread Cookie mix that I prefer is the gluten free Shortbread Cookie mix from Bob’s Red Mill.
I have been using shortening in them instead of butter, but the next time I make them I may try using coconut oil instead and see how that works.
I had purchased the Scottish Thistle cookie stamp a couple of months ago, and found the ripple edged biscuit cutter a few weeks later.
These cookies go incredibly well with a nice hot mug of English or Scottish breakfast tea. While I also like Earl Grey tea, I prefer the flavor of a breakfast tea with these cookies.
The oatmeal raisin cookies turned out well, also. I haven’t tried them beings that they have gluten in them, and I already have had more gluten than I really should.
