No, really, I LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate chip cookies. You get the point.
Cookies are my weakness….and brownies too, but that’s for another experiment.
It’s a real bummer that I’ve taken it on myself to try all the different cookie mixes and review them. Oh darn…. 😉
Today, I decided to try the King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free Cookie Mix. It’s base is rice flour blend, which I’m learning is my favorite gluten-free blend.
The was as easy as any other mix…pour in a bowl and add a bunch of stuff to it. The recipe called for 1/2. butter/oil, which I substituted 1/4 c. applesauce for half of the oil. The mix is a cookie mix, so you can technically add up to 3 cups of your favorite mix-ins. I was thinking this recipe would be great with walnuts, cranberries, and white chunks. But I didn’t have all that and was in the mood for chocolate.
So, chocolate chip cookies was the final out come. I used the Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chunks.
Final verdict on the cookies: PURE AWESOMENESS! Excellent fluffy cookies without the “gluten-free” flavor. Basically, it tastes like the ‘real thing.’
These are not sugar-free, but they taste great for the occasional gluten-free treat. I do NOT however, like the price for the mix. Ugh! I think its was over $4.50! Ah, all for the sake of the blog… 😉 Back to my quest for the perfect homemade flour blend!!! 🙂
