Gluten free, Egg free, dairy free Oatmeal cookies

Beat these ingredients together:
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
[For chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, add approximately 11-12 ounces ]
[For oatmeal raisin, or just oatmeal, add: 
     1 teaspoon cinnamon 
     1/4 teaspoon anise seed   
     pinch nutmeg
     1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
     (1/3 cup raisins)]
Next, add:
2 cups rice flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups gluten free quick oats
When everything is well blended, and the consistency is of a drop-cookie dough, place dough in the refrigerator for one hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a large baking sheet. Using a cookie scooper, drop by the 2-tablespoon onto the cookie sheet. Bake until edges are golden and cookies are slightly firm on the top. You will need to make sure that cookies are cooled before you remove them from the baking sheet. Gluten free, egg free cookies are always rather moist when first removed from the oven. Enjoy!

Coffee Cake/Bread

To me, coffee bread speaks of Yugoslavia and Romania area. It's perfect with Potato soup or Ciorba! My version is yeast, gluten, egg and dairy free, but by no means is it taste free! It is fluffy, delicious and irresistible! People have told me that they cannot tell the difference between the wheat and the gluten free. So! Here we go!
First beat these ingredients together:
1⁄4 cup corn oil
1/4 cup very soft margarine
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2 tablespoons corn oil
3 tablespoons applesauce
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk (coconut, almond, soy or dairy) or water

Add next while stirring with a whisk:
2-1/4 cups white rice flour (NOT glutinous rice flour, because then the cake will be very gummy!)
1/4 cup potato starch
1/2 cup corn starch
1 teaspoon salt

Grease two 8-9 inch round cake pans or one 9"x13"  rectangular dish and pour batter evenly into them/it. Combine in a medium size bowl 1-1/2 cups white sugar and 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon (or enough to make the sugar a sandy color) and evenly sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture over top.
Place in oven that has been preheated to 375 degrees. Bake until inserted toothpick comes out clean or for approximately 25 minutes.
Serve warm or cold.
