A Cowboy, Candy Corn Cookies and a Bowl Full of Candy!

Sheriff Jack
Yay, Halloween is here!  And this cowboy is ready for the day! All dressed up for pre-school as a Cowboy/Sheriff - he is ready to play Halloween games, decorate his candy corn sugar cookie and make sure everyone plays nice and say, "Excuse me ma'am I'm gonna have to check that candy for gluten." ;)

For their special treat at school today, Jack needed a sugar cookie in shape of a candy corn.  So we whipped up Pamela's Products sugar cookie recipe using her White Cake Mix (she now has a Sugar Cookie Mix) and they turned out fabulous! We made a few adjustments to the recipe, but I was happy with the texture and taste and so was Jack!  

Besides the fabulous cookies, we are ready for a great night of trick or treating with our friends and neighbors and have a bowl FULL of gluten-free candies to share! This also gives Jack a chance to trade any of his gluten candies he may get, like Whoppers, Twix, KitKats, Crunch, etc. from trick or treating.
Candy Corn Cookies
Our bowl is full of some yummy gluten free treats for Jack and our neighbors. Our bowl has:

Tootsie Pops
Tootsie Rolls
Tootsie Fruit Rolls

We are excited for the evening to come and I look forward to hearing all about Jack's day at school.  Let the sugar high begin!  

Wishing you all a safe and fun Halloween!  

And Jack, you are the cutest Cowboy/Sheriff I've ever seen! :)


  1. Nice looking blog! Glad I ran across it. On Halloween evening my celiac daughter and I sorted her candy into two piles. Then we weighed the non-gluten free candy I agreed to let her pick out the same amount of gluten free candy in the store the next day. It was really fun for her to have free-reign to pick out whatever gf candy she wanted.

  2. Thanks Jen! That's a great idea. Giving them another fun alternative is always key! I find myself always thinking, "Okay, how can Jack enjoy this without feeling like he CAN'T have what everyone else is having." We gotta get creative for sure! Thank you for checking out our blog. :)
