this is very good

This book was almost MADE for me as I am a gluten free vegan for health reasons. I don't have celiac disease but I am slightly gluten intolerant and while it is pretty easy to eat regular food gluten free and vegan, baked goods have been the final frontier for me. Since becoming g-free and vegan, I have stayed away from sweets and baked goods even though I knew that books like The Flying Apron were out there. After trying brown rice flour bread from the store (it's TERRIBLE and is most useful as a perishable paper weight) I was very skeptical of g-free baked goods.
But I have amazing friends who know of my odd eating habits and one of them got me this book for Christmas. I couldn't wait to try it out! I made the Thumbprint Apricot cookies and they are SOOOOOO good. I brought them to the office and they were devoured in minutes and people have been coming to my office all morning to tell me how much they liked them.
All of her recipes call for using a stand mixer. I don't have one (booo!!!!!!! I want one!) but using a hand mixer worked perfectly fine.
When you make any of the dough (almost all of her recipes have the same dough) don't be scared!! It doesn't look like dough because what makes other dough look like dough is gluten. Bonus: no dangers of over mixing!! Don't taste the raw dough like I did because you'll be even more scared. The raw dough tastes awful. But baking is magical and when the dough bakes up all of your fears will go away. Such deliciousness! A tender, chewy, flavorful cookie.
Highly recommend this book to any baker - not just g-free vegans. These recipes are delicious and therefore will make anyone happy - even those who love butter, milk, eggs, and all purpose flour!!
