Totally baked

My Christmas baking marathon is complete, and I think I need at least a week to recover. I've prepared enough goodies (both gluten-free and not) for the army of relatives and friends I'll be seeing over the next week. Throw in a couple of store-bought treats, and we celiacs can't ask for anything more.

Here's a sampling of what's on our holiday dessert table:

Candy Cane Cremes: Made by Mi-Del, they are a limited edition version of the company's Oreo-type cookies. The box says they're "perfect for those with gluten sensitivity." I say they're perfect with a tall glass of milk or dunked in hot cocoa.

For those feeling a little more adventurous, try mashing up these cremes (or the traditional version), mix with cream cheese and roll into balls. Dip them in chocolate and refrigerate. Mmmmmm .....
