Remarkable Allergy Friendly Makes Big World Victory

Today’s allergy friendly around the world adventure has us saying au revoir France (remember Clafoutis) and Привет (hello) Russia. What comes to mind when you think of the Soviet Republic? Russian tea cakes perhaps…? You know those little white powdered balls that make their appearance in December?  Speaking of appearances, don’t forget Kitchology’s Eat.Better app has a slew of international recipes to fit your needs.

50/50 Chance

Often, baking with allergies can be a daunting task. It requires tons of ingredients, a long drawn out prep time and only a 50/50 chance it will actually taste good. Fortunately, today’s offering is none of those; it’s quick, easy and delicious.

If you’re not familiar with Russian tea cakes, maybe you recognize them as Mexican wedding cakes, Italian wedding cookies, butterballs, or snowballs. However you roll them, traditionally they are made with butter, flour, powdered sugar and nuts. They sound like an allergy fueled nightmare, nyet? But, with a few tweaks they’ll be your new favorite.

Let’s Break It Down

Breaking it down, swap out the butter with your safe dairy free margarine. I like Earth Balance made with olive oil.  Next, choose your favorite gluten free flour. One I’ve been using a lot lately to test out it’s full potential is Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour. Concerning the nuts, either omit them or swap them out for gluten free Rice Krispies.

Allergy Friendly Russian Tea Cakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dairy free margarine
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups Gluten free flour
    I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1
  • 1/2 cup Rice Krispies (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar

allergy friendlyDirections

  1. Heat oven to 400ºF
  2. Place Rice Krispies in a baggie and lightly smash.
  3. Mix margarine, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla in large bowl. Stir in flour, Rice Krispies and salt until dough holds together.
  4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and placed on parchment paper or ungreased cookie sheet 1 inch apart.
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Do not let them become brown. Remove from cookie sheet and allow them to cool slightly.
  6. Gently roll the warm cookies in powdered sugar. Then allow them to cool completely on a wire rack. Roll in powdered sugar again.

Did they turn out well? Share your #allergy friendly tea cake experience with the rest of us @Kitchology and @Kitchenchick123. Next up, we’re going Down Under for another delightful dessert.
