I’m slowly working my way away from the starches and had run out of sorghum, so I decided it would be a great time to buy. Â It’s currently living in a Vittles Vault container. Â They make great food storage containers, as I had learned from Sara years ago.
Carter and I thought we’d give the sorghum flour a test drive all on its own and create a sugar cookie with just the sorghum flour. Â We loved these!
Carter and I did roll them out and cut some. Â I really don’t like doing it in the first place because it is time-consuming and tiresome, dealing with the dough. Â This dough did need to be chilled (most do), and it does spread when you cook it. Â The hearts were fine and the gingerbread men were a little obese, but the dinosaurs with their skinny appendages did not fair well. Â Personally, I prefer just rolling them into a ball and patting it out into a circle.
