Favorite cookie recipe for an impossibly picky crowd?

operagirl | Mar 22, 2011 10:36 PM

Hello all,

I am currently involved in an opera production, and one of my favorite ways to raise morale at rehearsals is to bring a big ol' batch of cookies to share with my fellow musicians.

I made a batch of oatmeal cookies that went over very well -- studded with dried cherries and walnuts and flavored with orange zest, they were pretty awesome if I do say so myself! Unfortunately, many of my friends have dietary restrictions, so a handful of folks were not able to partake.

I'd like to make another batch of cookies this week that everyone can enjoy. For this to be possible, the cookies need to be

- gluten-free
- walnut-free
- vegan

I know that's a lot to ask, but if anyone has ideas I'd love to hear them! I'm thinking maybe a peanut butter cookie made with peanut flour instead of wheat flour. But more interesting/exotic ideas are welcome too. I've got teff flour and rice flour in the cupboard, both of which would work as gluten-free subs for regular flour... Anyway, looking forward to hearing your ideas, hounds! Thanks in advance!
