The 2013 Gluten-Free Cookie Swap winners have been chosen, and I’m thrilled to announce and share the winning recipes with you!
11 cookie finalists competed in a bake-off and were judged in a blind taste-test by a panel of judges of all ages, some of whom eat gluten, some of whom are gluten-free.
Each of the 11 finalist’s recipes are listed below and match to the corresponding numbered photo. You can access these and all the other recipe submissions from the PHOTOS tab on the Gluten-Free Cookie Swap on Facebook, under the “Photos of the Gluten-Free Cookie Swap” album. They are also available on my Gluten-Free Cookie Swap Pinterest Board. Find the picture of the cookie you want, and click on it to get the recipe!
Congratulations to each of these finalists, to everyone who participated and to our 3 big winners! They will be enjoying hundreds of dollars worth of kitchen and baking prizes from our sponsors: Cuisinart, KitchenAid, OXO, Earth Balance, CORE Kitchen Cooking, Tovolo, Le Creuset, KiDECALS, Dreamfarm, Enjoy Life Foods, The Food Allergy Kitchenware Co., Wholesome Sweeteners & Jules Gluten Free Flour!
