CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) - The holidays mean delightful sweets and baked goods for many people. But for those who choose to, or need to watch their gluten intake, the holidays can be quite the challenge.
Anne Croy, Pastry Chef at Pastaria in Clayton, showed Tim Ezell how to make gluten-free chocolate chip cookies at home.
Anne uses Cup4Cup, a baking substitute for wheat flour. Retailers in the St. Louis area who carry Cup4Cup are all Dierberg’s locations and the Schnucks Des Peres location at 12332 Manchester Road.
