Wheat-free, barley-free cookie recipes?

If anybody has any recipes (and has time ), can you post them here?

Thanks.

6 cups cubed yellow squash (about 12 medium squash)
2 cups frozen green peas
5 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
4 tablespoons olive oil
12 cups rice flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups lukewarm water (or reserve the water squash was boiled in & let cool)

Preheat oven to 350. Boil squash until mushy, drain and mash in a large bowl. Mix in peas, molasses and olive oil. Gradually add flour 1 cup at a time alternating with water. Mix until smoth. Shmurge it with your hands to make sure you've got the lumps out. Lightly dust your cutting board, roll the cookie dough out to a 1/2 inch thickness. I use a pizza wheel to cut small squares. Place on a nonstick or greased cookie sheet and bake for about 1/2 until golden. Makes about 4 to 5 pounds (which sadly won't last that long ). You can also spice this up a bit with some savoury, thyme and oregano.

Ummmm....you're kidding right ? Okay ~ I'll assume you aren't. Peel it before you cube it. Then with a sharp chef's knife cut it in half and remove seeds if any. Then cut up into 1 inch cubes, put it in just enough water to cover it and boil it to mushy stage (5-10 minutes).

Cool. Thanks. One more question- how do you buy squash? I mean, what do you look for?

You'll find it in the produce section usually in a basket underneath the counters with the loose taters, turnip and onions. It should be uniformly firm with no gouges or bruising and relatively heavy ~ give it a shake (sloshing or rattling is bad). If it's been waxed, before you peel it :rinse it under very hot water, swish it with some vinegar then rinse it again with very hot water. If you're not able to find decent squash (though you should at this time of year) you can also use sweet potatoes which you prepare exactly the same way (I don't peel mine ~ I just cut up the peel into bits as I'm mashing).

Prin ~ Are rye flour and all-purpose white flour out ? What about corn meal ? I was just thinking that for most of my recipes all-purpose can be substituted but almost all of them have flour of one variety or another. Rice flour can also be substituted for most recipes but you have to be using a "gluey" veg.

Well, I'm trying to stay away from gluten and a friend of mine who can't have gluten said that rye affects her... So I'd say no rye, barley and wheat for now... I don't really like corn for doggies either though (aside from allergies).
