Gluten Free Valentine’s Day Heart Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Hello Adventurers!

When I tried what I wanted to do with this blog post, it didn’t work, so I went with the best second option!  Here are some simple Gluten Free Heart Vanilla Sugar Cookies!


90g Butter, softened

100g Caster Sugar

1 Egg, beaten

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Red Food Colouring

240g Gluten Free Plain Flour



Measuring Spoons

Large Mixing Bowl

Wooden Spoon/Electric Hand Whisk

Baking Paper

Rolling Pin

Heart Cookie Cutter

Cookie Sheet/Baking Tray x 2



Measure out your ingredients and grab a large mixing bowl.

Add your butter and caster sugar to your mixing bowl and beat until smooth.

Add in your egg, vanilla and red food colouring and beat together.

Add in your flour, a little at a time, until fully combined.

Wrap your mixture into some baking paper and put in the freezer for an hour and fifteen minutes.

After this time, preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.  Roll out your dough to an inch or less thick, depending on how thick you want your cookies, between two pieces of baking paper.

Place some baking paper on your cookie sheets.

Cut out your heart shapes and place them on your cookie sheets ready to cook.  When you run out of space to cut out your shapes, bring your remaining dough together and make into a ball, roll out and begin cutting again, do this until you don’t have enough dough to make any more cookies.

Place your cookie sheets in the oven and bake for ten to thirteen minutes.

Leave to cool for ten minutes on the cookie sheets, then transfer onto a cooling rack.

Serve and enjoy!

Gluten Free Syrup Sponge Pudding Pots

Hello Adventurers!

I made this and had it for my pudding on Christmas day, as one of my favourite memories of  Christmas was when my Dad and I made Christmas dinner and made this for dessert and I am so glad I did!

This is one of my all-time favourite desserts and I cannot wait to make it again!

The lemon juice is optional because I didn’t like it, but my parents did.  I found that it made it too sharp for me but if you like that sort of thing, by all means add it, it is completely up to you! Continue reading “Gluten Free Syrup Sponge Pudding Pots”

Gluten Free Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

Hello Adventurers!

I have loved this recipe from the moment I came up with the idea of doing it!  They taste awesome and just like a Terry’s chocolate orange, although don’t tap and smash these as they do want to be eaten, I have had this conversation with them. 

If you don’t know what I am talking about, there was an advert a couple of years ago and I think that the craze is still going when it comes to them, but we were told in an advert not to tap terry’s chocolate oranges to break them apart, but to whack them.  I still do this every year when I get one in my stocking!
