Gluten Free Vegan Cream Puff VS. Raw Almond Vanilla Cookies

My recipes and I can now be found @

I hope to see you there!   
After years of culinary disasters I finally created a light, airy, crispy Gluten Free Vegan Cream Puff / Eclair
This gluten free vegan pate choux dough was creamy, rich and perfect.  I piped it on the pan and it looked as perfect as any pate choux should!  After MANY failed attempts to make a lovely vegan and gluten free pate choux I was very worried as I slipped these babies in the oven.

Would they rise properly?
Would they taste good?
Would they hold together?

I pressed the timer and kept coming back over and over checking on my gluten free vegan cream puffs and eclairs.  I am SO happy with how they turned out, they are AMAZING!!!

My non-gluten free hubby called them Delightful!!!

I was just thrilled with the result and I made a beautiful VEGAN Pastry Cream to fill them.  Pastry cream can be tricky and I have often seen recipes that include silken tofu but I wanted to make it without that crutch!  Don't get me wrong, I like my tofu, but I really wanted to create a very traditional vegan pastry cream.

WOWZERS, this pastry cream is yummy!  Yes, you could find me and the fam gobbling this up by the spoonful!!

By the time I finished with the vegan gluten free pate choux, then successfully created the gluten free eclairs and cream puffs and vegan pastry cream I was too lazy to try and create a vegan chocolate icing to top them, so the cream puffs got melted chocolate chips on top, it wasn't pretty but it was Oh So Good!

Raw Almond Vanilla Star Cookies

I must admit I was quite surprised at the winner, but the raw almond vanilla star cookies had more interest than the cream puffs and so this recipe is the one I will be posting.

Don't get me wrong these cookies are really good!!  They are lightly crispy on the outside and still a little chewy on the inside.  They would be excellent paired with some hot chocolate or frosted.
I frosted them with a berry frosting colored with a little beet and they were adorable and delicious.

My kids love these and they are healthy enough that the kids can have them as a snack anytime!
