Allergy-Friendly Cookie Crisis
People with food allergies and sensitivities often feel left out while watching their friends and family enjoy a feast of foods they cannot digest.
Consuming a friend or family member’s homemade allergy friendly recipe can also be a terrifying experience. How careful were they in preventing cross contamination? Do they really understand what it means to have your particular allergy or sensitivity?

Quick Fix to Provide an Allergy-Friendly Option
There’s an quick and easy way to remedy this dilemma.
If you are the guest, bring a allergy friendly cookie gift basket. Choose your favorite allergy friendly cookies, place in an attractive bowl , and wrap in cellophane. This way all the host has to do is to unwrap the cellophane and place the bowl in the serving area. While it may feel odd bringing your own dessert, you are still giving the host a gift by choosing a serving bowl that they can use again and again.
If you are the host, you may ask guests about allergies or cover the big three (gluten, dairy, and peanuts) by providing options for each. Be sure to keep them away from the prep area and other foods, leave in wrapper if individually wrapped, and place the label near the option so your guests may know exactly what they are consuming.
