I'm hosting a tea party for Valentine's day and I'll have 1-3 gluten free people coming. But so far I really want to have at least little tea sandwiches and shortbread cookies decorated like these. Maybe VCC biscotti too.

So obviously it's a pretty wheat-centric menu. Which of these things have you successfully made gf? and what the heck kind of bread do I get for the sandwiches? What other finger food type things can I make that are naturally gf and don't cost a gajillion dollars in gf flour?

What about dips (like chickpea tuna salad) and fresh veggies and leaves (like kale or collards) to use for dipping? Pimento chz, Cream chz and spinach, etc.

I've had good luck baking cookies with the Gluten Frida mix in VCIYCJ, though I've never baked a gluten-free shortbread cookie. The macadamia ginger cookies -also from VCIYCJ- were exceptionally good; I used pistachios instead of macadamias.

Maybe you could make truffles or bon-bons of some kind for more finger food sweets? Those can totally be naturally gluten-free!

you could offer rice crackers, radish and cucumber slices for topping with dips, chickpea salad, etc.

does Bob's Red Mill make a gluten-free bread mix you can try out for sammies?

also, Allyson's butterscotch amaretti cookies are ridiculously good and super easy to make and don't require a million flours (just almond meal)!

if your gluten-free guests are okay with gluten-free oats you can purchase some and make susan v.'s blueberry oat bars. i've had tasty successes with them many times and you can switch out the fruit, too!
