Gluten Free Cookie

Sunday, June 09, 2013

So even with my GMO Wheat Fears ( ), I’m still not stronger than a cookie. Although “Cookie Baking Weekend” – you know, the never ending Valentine’s Day present I gave to my husband ( ) – isn’t supposed to be until next week, we’re away on vacation then. I thought moving it up a week would work out perfectly, as I was hosting a barbecue for my father and the rest of the family today, so I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to unload excess cookies. I did unload excess cookies, of course – into myself.

On the bright side, it was the very last box of Stonewall Kitchen Cookie Mix – we do have one more cookie hurdle to jump next month with a skillet cookie mix I have, but then NO MORE cookie mixes. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Not to say I have to cut out cookies completely, though. I ended up checking out the Gluten Free bakery I mentioned - the one that is about 5 minutes from where I work ( ).

Fallon’s Gluten Free Bake Shop in Fords – www.fallonsglutenfreebak
- Also Nut Free.

My intention was to pick up a Gluten Free dessert for all of the family to enjoy at the barbecue, BUT I didn’t realize everything was special order! Plus, at $18 for a pie, it was a bit pricier than I thought it would be. So it didn’t appear I would be bringing home any cakes or pies that day – they did have cupcakes and various breads available, but I of course went for this:

A decent sized cookie for $1.25. I was very satisfied with one – did not have the additional post-cookie sugar cravings I’m used to.

I did get to speak with the baker for a moment, as I was curious about what kind of flour they were using since it was also a nut free facility. Turns out it was rice flour, which I guess is fine – but I’m still anxious to try a cookie made with almond flour or coconut flour. As part of an Amazon Local Deal, I was able to get good prices on 6 bags of almond flour and 1 can of Coconut Secret raw Coconut flour, so I’ll be experimenting with these when I get back from vacation.

    Om nom nom nom nom... Almond flour cookies are just heavenly!!! You'll never want to go back to crappy old wheat again! I can't have them around too often, because NO ONE in my house can stop at just one! Thank goodness the ones we make are also no sugar! Last time I had some was at Christmas, guess we're due for a Fourth of July batch soon!

I'm pretty sure my DH used this recipe as a base:
BR>They're super crumbly, but OH SO GOOD!
