Waffle Cones



My children wanted waffle cones, I was feeling a bit adventurous, and so . . we have multicolored waffle bowls. You really need a waffle cone maker in order for these to work. If you don't have one, you can pick one up at Walmart or Target. I say it's worth it, because you can make dozens of cones for just pennies, instead of having to buy 12 pre-made GF cones for $5.00. Hope you enjoy!

Waffle Cones/Bowls


3 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted and cooled
2 Tbs. vanilla
1 c. EGF All-Purpose Flour
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. baking powder


Beat eggs, gradually adding sugar. Add cooled butter and vanilla. In another bowl, combine flour mix, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Blend into egg mixture until smooth. Dough will be sticky. Drop by the heaping spoonful onto a hot waffle-cone baker.

Bake as directed, usually for about 20 seconds. Remove from baker and either roll around a waffle cone shaper or drape over an upside-down bowl or cup. The cones will harden quickly as they cool.

Butterscotch Crinkles


Butterscotch Crinkles

My daughter's kindergarten teacher made these for us one day, and my kids loved them!!! Not very healthy, and a bit expensive once you buy the gluten free cornflakes, but quite addicting once you taste them. So, if you make them and happen to put on ten or so pounds, it's totally not my fault. Blame it on kindergarten.

1/2 c peanut butter
1 bag of gluten free butterscotch chips
6 c of gluten free cornflakes (I bought mine at Macey's grocery store in the GF section)

You can half all of this too and make a smaller batch.....I would if you plan on NOT sharing....hehehehe:)

Melt the peanut butter and butterscotch in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  Pull out and stir then put in for another 30 seconds.  Continue stirring, melting, then checking until melted all the way through. Then add cornflakes....mix....then put on wax paper to dry. You might need to heat a little longer depending on your microwave. Make sure you don't cook over stove too....it won't cook right! Have fun eating!
