My second recipe: goldfish. I got this recipe from Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom. I had all the ingredients I needed…except a goldfish cookie cutter, so instead of goldfish, they were more like normal cheese crackers. But goldfish is so much easier to say. Goldfish weren’t a favorite snack from my gluten days, but I enjoyed them and thought it would make a great recipe to have. So when I found a recipe for gluten free goldfish, I couldn’t resist trying it out!
The dough make 4 different batches, and each time a new one came out, my brother and sister swared the pan like vultures. I had to chase them away to have any left! I don’t even think they realized they were eating gluten free goldfish.
I must say, I kept cutting the dough just a little too thick, but I actually like them better with a little puff (they were still crunchy too–perfect combo!). My family keeps requesting that I make more!
You can find this delectable goldfish recipe HERE. (I cannot post it here due to copyright). These little cheesy crackers are great for snacks, lunch, parties, you name it. You can’t go wrong with this delicious snack!

I am a salty person, as opposed to a sweet one. Before gluten free, biscuits were one of my favorite treats, and when I began looking for a great first recipe to try, I knew I wanted to taste the rich bread again. So I searched the internet, trying to find a simple, easy recipe I could replicate. Then I discovered Pamela’s. It was popular and stocked in my grocery store – Martin’s. I picked up a package, hoping that it would be the answer.
I was in no way disappointed. The recipe calls for shortening, but I replaced it with butter, an easier, healthier option. Pamela’s drop biscuit recipe makes about 6 biscuits and uses only three easy ingredients. They are Pamela’s pancake and baking mix, milk, and butter.
I could hardly wait to make them once I had the mix. I didn’t even tell anyone about my sudden interest in cooking. I simply did it. So, after about 20 minutes (cutting the butter into the mix definitely takes more time than shortening, but I think it’s worth it), I had my first complete and edible gluten free food that I had baked myself. And they were delicious. I saved some for my family, who all couldn’t believe I had made them. I was so elated.
I have made these once more since, and sprinkled shredded cheese on top of some, which was quite tasty. I would recomend it! So, the official list of ingredients and preparations…
- 1 cup Pamela’s Pancake and Baking Mix
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/3 cup 1 tbsp milk
- Preheat oven 375 degrees
- Cut in butter (w/ mix) w/ a fork/knife until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (I melt the butter and add; if you do this, the mix may be a tad bit more liquidy, so just stir a little longer))
- Pour in milk while stirring w/ fork (do NOT let mixture sit)
- Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet (I sprinkle cheese on top of one or two)
- Bake 12 minutes, or until brown on top
This is definitely something I will make a lot! ( I will post a picture next time I make them)
