Honey spice cookies

 

This cookie recipe is delicious and right in with the flavors of the season! With the clove and allspice, this cookie is reminiscent from fall through the Christmas season. For those who are keeping sugars down (we all should be), I used a combination of turbinado sugar (sugar that is less refined and still contains some molasses) and monk fruit in the raw. Using the less processed version of sugar is better for the flavor and our health! Enjoy!

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

12 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened

1⁄2 cup packed (4 oz.) turbinado sugar (or ¼ Cup turbinado + ¼ C Monk Fruit in the raw)

2 tbsp. honey

1 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground ginger

1⁄2 tsp. ground allspice

1⁄2 tsp. ground cloves

2 cups (9 oz.) all-purpose  gluten free flour, plus more for dusting

1⁄3 cup finely chopped hazelnuts

1 tsp. salt

 

Heat the oven to 375°. Using a hand mixer on medium speed, beat together...

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

GARLIC MASHED POTATOES

 

Who doesn’t love mashed potatoes? I like to flavor mine up a bit with some garlic but I also like to add some onion and chives. The flavor is still fairly mild so if there’s gravy, it still works. Check out this simple recipe that serves 8 people and only takes about 30 minutes to make.

 

5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes

6 garlic cloves, minced finely

1/3 cup butter

1 1/2 cups cream

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Minced onion, to taste

Chives, to taste

For dairy free option, you can replace the butter with Ghee and use 1-½ C of unflavored, unsweetened milk alternative. I have also used Kite Hill brand cream-style cheese instead of either butter and cream and instead thinned it out with a unflavored, unsweetened milk alternative.

 

Quarter the potatoes and put in large pot or dutch oven. Fill with water so that all the potatoes are covered. You can peel before slicing or leave the peels on for a heartier potato flavor.

{Holiday} Monster Cookie Bars

Ok, so these aren't so much a holiday monster bar as Monster Bar Cookies with holiday-colored candies in them. Since baking is not really my thing, that's good enough for me.

These bars are easy- you only need one large bowl- and some simple ingredients. There is definitely sugar in these but no flour- gluten free otherwise! I have made them with sugar alternatives (Erythritol and Stevia) but when you're bringing something to share at a party, you don't want to bring something that could potentially cause digestive upset. You gotta know your audience... So, here's the simple, gooey, {holiday} Monster Cookie Bar recipe.
