Day 30 talks about making a “tearfile” to sort your holiday ideas.  I use this technique with recipes and cookie design ideas, actually.  I have all the photos I have seen in magazines and newspapers over the past few years in a 3 ring binder so I can remember the great cookie design ideas I have seen.  My binder is a great jumping off point for our own designs when we bake!


The recipe for today is Lemon Sugar Cookies.  You could try the amaranth flour-based GF Lemon Sugar Cut-out Cookie from or the GF version of Lemon-Basil Sugar Cookie from CF Whitney.  Alter the dairy to the same amount of dairy substitute (such as GFCF milk substitute or Earth Balance Buttery Spread) as needed in the recipe to make dairy free also.
