Gluten-free Coconut Macaroons Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

This incredibly simple, awfully sticky, extremely sweet gluten-free coconut macaroons recipe is courtesy Blind Pig and the Acorn.

  • 5 1/3 cups (14ozs) flake coconut
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla

 

Mix all the ingredients together.

Drop by spoonfuls onto well-greased cookie sheets. The cookies are sticky and difficult to remove from the pan. Aluminum foil didn’t help. Next time, I’ll use parchment paper and see what happens.

Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or till lightly browned.

Once cookies are done, quickly remove them from pan and allow to cool on a cookie rack. The cookies will not hold their form, but that’s okay. Once cooled, you can form them into balls.

Store coconut macaroons in an air-tight container with plastic wrap or parchment paper between each layer to keep them from sticking together.

 

Enjoy!

I wish you well.

Gluten-free Sausage Noodle & Apple Casserole Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Pilot adapted this gluten-free sausage & apple casserole recipe from a cookbook I found during our trip to the World War II museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, titled, “Cooking On the Home Front” with favorite recipes of the World War II years by Hugh and Judy Gowan.

  • 1 pound sausage links
  • 3 cups gluten-free elbow macaroni noodles, cooked
  • 1 cup sweetened applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

Prick the sausage well with a fork, lay them in a pan, and bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes, or according to package directions. Turn once of twice to brown evenly. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the drippings.

Stir 2 tablespoons of the pork drippings into the noodles and arrange half of them in a greased medium casserole. (For a healthier meal, eliminate the drippings.)

Combine the applesauce, lemon juice, and nutmeg, and pour on top of the noodles.

 

Add the rest of the noodles and lay the sausages on top.

 

Sprinkle with cheese and bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees F, uncovered.

 

Enjoy!

I wish you well.
