Gluten-Free Cookie Demonstration

This time of year we spend many days in the kitchen baking family favorites to share with our loved ones. Baking fresh bread and rolling out pie dough for Thanksgiving is just the beginning. Soon our ovens will be busy baking batch after batch of holiday cookies!

To get you started I will be giving a cookie demonstration on December 3rd for the Denver CSA Cookie Exchange at the Swedish Medical Hospital. Join me and learn the gingersnap recipe from my new cookbook. After the demonstrations we will share cookies and have a book signing. I can't think of a better way to start off your holiday baking than with a bunch of new recipes in hand.

These gingersnaps also make a delicious crust for cheesecakes. I like to make pumpkin cheesecake for the holidays. Cheesecakes are easy to make ahead of time and always look beautiful. A great tip to keep your cake from cracking is to put a pan of water on the bottom shelf before preheating the oven. This creates enough moisture in your oven to prevent cracking. If your cheesecake does happen to crack, you can always garnish with whip cream and pecans. No one will have any idea and you will have a great dinner party!

Happy Thanksgiving!
