  1. I just love your recipies!!

    Looks great. But two questions:
    1. What other wheat-free flour could be used?
    2. Can I use regular wheat flour in place of spelt?

    Yes, I know…weird. But our daughter is trying to stay away from wheat gluten, and our son is lactose intolerant, but I could use regular flour when making this for him. And make a separate batch for her.

    Thanks so much!

    • Wow, you have your hands full. Regular wheat flour should not be a problem, but if you want to go gluten free I would suggest a gluten free all purpose mix.

    Does this recipe call for unsweetened frozen cranberries?

    Ah Tamar, we’re a Jewish family. What can I say? ;-) Oh yes, our son will only eat kosher meat (and loves it), but his wife is a vegetarian. Our daughter’s family are omnivores, though their daughter won’t go near most veggies. And my husband won’t eat anything with cheese. Family gatherings require extensive planning. Thanks for the assurance that any gluten-free flour should work. I think I’ll be able to find some in town.

    • LOL, glad I am not the only one and mine are still little, can’t even think about when they bring others into the equation.

    Could you put nutritional values on your recipes. For those of us trying to lose weight, it would help a great deal. Thanks.

    • We are working on it, but it is a one by one process so takes time. I will add it to this recipe now and please let me know of any others you would like in particular.

  6. so thrilled to see more healthier recipes on Joy of Kosher. Love recipes without white flour or sugar. Keep ‘em coming!
