Gluten Free Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!  How do you celebrate?

This year my husband and I are staying in with the kids because we’re having dinner out next weekend with friends.  I always buy my kids some little sweet treat to celebrate and this year I made their classes Shortbread Bars with Cinnamon Heart Buttercream. It’s so good!

I also made some Gluten Free Cinnamon-Sugar Cookies for the first time this week.  I used coconut flour instead of regular flour, which I had never used before, and it gave it an amazing taste.  These cookies baked up so moist too and stayed moist for days after. Everyone that tasted them has asked for the recipe!

Have you been watching any of the Olympics?

I’ve been enjoying the skiing and skating competitions and we’re even getting to watch a bit of the action during the lunch break at school.  Our cafeteria and main foyer have TV’s that have been tuned to the Olympics so we can all get in the spirit of the games.  It’s amazing how much skill and talent we have in our great country.  I’m definitely proud to be Canadian!
