On Their Blogs By Their Hands: Let’s End With Cookies

This is my last post about the incredible food that my blogger friends made for us at our blogger retreat.  I’ve been stretching this series out, because I haven’t wanted it to end. Our retreat was so special, and I’ve enjoyed reliving each moment by posting about each friend’s recipes.

You could say that I saved the best for last.  Or you could say that I had such a hard time finding one recipe to represent such an wonderful blogger and sincere friend that it had to wait until the very end.  Or you could say that I was waiting to adopt Debi for Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger hosted by Shannon of Enjoying Gluten-Free Life.  Or you could say that it was all of the above.  But regardless, this is my last retreat post, and it holds something delightful for you.

It was a joy to spend more time with Debi of Hunter’s Lyonesse.  She and I had met at the 2011 Allergen and Gluten-Free Expo and spent an evening talking and laughing.

But I really got to know Debi at the blogger’s retreat during our long walks and quiet moments with Shirley after the party died down to a dull roar.  Debi is a thinker, a reader, and a researcher.  And she does a great job sharing what she learns at Hunter’s Lyonesse.  She also loves to experiment in the kitchen, and her results are delicious!

That’s why I had such a hard time choosing just one recipe to highlight for you.

At the retreat, Debi was constantly working in the kitchen.  She manned the Vitamix for the Dairy-Free Chedda Cheese Fondue.  (Oh, did I not tell you about our Chedda Fondue Party? Well, you must go watch this video at The Whole Gang to see for yourself!)  Debi bustled around the kitchen.  And she brought us delicious muffins.

But one of her most popular recipes is her Flourless Pumpkin Pie Cookies.  And I don’t care that it’s summer and that it’s not pumpkin season.  These cookies are amazing any time of year!  It was even worth turning on the oven for 10 quick minutes on a 100 degree day.  Plus, with just a handful of ingredients, these dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, refined-sugar free cookies are a snap to make.

Have I convinced you?  Head over to find Debi’s Flourless Pumpkin Pie Cookies recipe and whip up a batch for yourself!

  1. Gosh, I had completely forgotten about these cookies of Debi’s! I’m glad that you shared a recipe of hers personally. It was neat that she made and brought others’ recipes with her for us to enjoy (and we did), but I like seeing what she creates. Now I must admit that I went crazy over these cookies when she posted them because I love all things pumpkin, but I still have not made these. What a travesty! Adding cashews to the grocery list so I can make some cashew butter and make these once the temps are back in the 90s. (Even I can’t turn the oven on when it’s 100 or 100+. My slow cooker is cooking dinner today.) Wonderful job of capturing Debi, Heather! I enjoyed our last little bit of time when it was just the three of us. :-) And I’m going to miss this series as much as I miss our gfe retreat. Seriously. You did such a terrific job on sharing the folks who participated and their recipes!

      Shirley, yes that last day was a special one! I’m mourning the end of this series. I’m thankful for the friendships that I built and that I can catch a glimpse of them in the recipes from their blogs! Can’t wait until next year!!

    Answers to your questions: Sorry, I hate the slightest taste of pumpkin in anything. I won’t even taste stuff that I know has pumpkin in it.

    The hottest day of the year in south Texas means I’ll happily turn on the oven in the house because it’s too hot to go outside and grill!

    Haven’t tried her blog yet but I’ll head on over there and read after this.

    Yes, I’m gluten free. I just discovered a coconut flour and almond flour loaf that made me rejoice.

      Wow, Deborah! I’ve never met someone as vehemently against pumpkin as you! You must really hate October. Ha! I’ll bet you could make these cookies with pureed sweet potatoes. I’m sure you’ve already found lots of other deliciousness over at Debi’s blog!

      So glad you are discovering flours and recipes that make you you happy and healthy. Thanks for commenting!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
