Is your mouthwatering?
I know you just want to bite right into these freshly made old fashioned chocolate chip cookies.
Yep, they’re just the way your mom made them when you were a kid – and they’re gluten-free! Happy dance 🙂 I wish I could take the credit for these scrumptious cookies, but these ones are courtesy of the Gluten Free Pantry
Old fashioned Cake & Cookie Mix by Glutino
Here’s what’s baking –
when I was first diagnosed with gluten-intolerance
I was really crushed that I would be missing out on the things that most people enjoy regularly; bread, pizza, cookies, brownies…etc. At the time there really wasn’t much available on the market in terms of gluten-free mixes and ready made items, so I learned to bake gluten-free using available flours. However, baking from scratch isn’t for everyone – so I wanted to do a little investigative research into the available baking mixes to see if they are worth your while
– you, being the newbie on the gluten free block 😉
Glutino kindly agreed to help me with my investigation and supplied me with a sample of each of the following from their Gluten Free Pantry line:
- Old Fashioned Cake & Cookie mix
- Chocolate Truffle Brownie mix
- Perfect Pie Crust
- French Bread & Pizza Mix
Each Tuesday in the month of April, I’ll try one of them and give you my verdict. I’m hoping this will help you out when you are picking up groceries and are faced with the ever growing gluten-free section in your neighborhood store (yay! it’s here…boo, not all of its good!)
So, back to the cookies, shall we?
I used the Old Fashioned Cake & Cookie Mix
to make chocolate chip cookies: the mix + butter + eggs + vanilla + chocolate chips = seriously yummy cookies.
These are truly comparable to regular (non-gluten) delicious chocolate chip cookies – and let’s face it, when you’re new to gluten-free…you compare everything to how it would
taste if it were chock full of gluten!
What’s the verdict?
A cinch to make; the cookies were ready in only 15 minutes! Mr. Smith and Little A. were happy taste-testers and it was yums-up all around. I’m giving this baking mix a 5 out 5!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
