Can you guess which cartoon character is on this decorated cookie?
Here’s another hint:
It’s Bob the Tomato from Veggie Tales and these cookies are gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, decorated cookies. How’s that for a mouthful?
Actually, I have to say that they’re not the best tasting cookies ever, but apparently a sweet-tooth like me just needs my palette to adjust to the new ingredients. I’ve included a link to the recipe at the end of this post if you’d like to try it out.
It’s kind of funny… ‘healthy’ vegetable characters on a healthier cookie. I wish I could say I planned it that way!
There’s a reason behind making this special recipe, and his name is Henry. My sweet nephew has a autism, and besides therapy, his diet is extremely important in terms of his overall health and behaviour. He can’t have any gluten, dairy or soy, and can only have sugar infrequently and in tiny amounts. Only small amounts of a cookie like this per day… or even every few days. (He’s on the far right in this picture):
He’s completely into Veggie Tales, so these cookies were part of his Christmas gift this year. I didn’t end up getting a pic of him opening them, but he was happy with them and noticed all the details.

Quick note; I did end up using this rice flour and Earth Balance natural buttery spread, and would love to hear if you like these or other gluten-free or dairy-free food products.
Happy baking to you!
