emoticon Another choc chip cookie recipe:

Elizabeth Barbone, author of "Easy Gluten-Free Baking" (Lake Isle Press), is an alumna of the Culinary Institute of America (her degree is in pastry arts). Here's her version of the famous cookie-jar treat.

Gluten-free chocolate chip cookies
Makes about 3 dozen

1 1/4 cups white rice flour
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 bag (12 ounces) gluten-free chocolate chips

1. Set the oven at 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a bowl combine the white rice and sweet rice flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Use a whisk to stir them.
3. In a mixer, cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar for 1 minute. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and beat just until a dough forms.
4. Remove the bowl from the mixer stand. With a wooden spoon, stir in the chips.
5. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto the baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake the sheets one at a time.
6. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes or until they are golden. Set the baking sheet on a wire rack to cool for 3 to 5 minutes or until cookies are firm. Transfer to the rack to cool completely. Bake the second sheet in the same way. Store cookies in an airtight container. Adapted from "Easy Gluten-Free Baking"

emoticon From a recent post on the celiaclistserv, here's a choc. chip cookie recipe from a Food Network Good Eats with Alton Brown episode (chewy!):

recipe to print: tinyurl.com/cjq47o

recipe w/Food Network forum member comments:
tinyurl.com/5cvqpz

comments from the person who posted on the celiaclistserv:

"it had some good tips in the broadcast, like halfway through baking, switch the cookie sheets to another rack and turn them 180 degrees around. And leave on the sheets to cool for about 2 minutes before putting on cookie racks to finish cooling.

He also beat the sugars and butter for about a minute. I've never creamed the sugars that long, but will try in future recipes.

And yes, I once did end up with an entire cookie sheet cookie....from another recipe. He says that's the results of not chilling the dough for about an hour before putting blobs on cookie sheet. It only happened once. I attributed it to very damp weather. I don't usually chill my dough, unless I'm making a rolled sugar cookie and I know I have a lot to make.

The best part was that he just talked about gf as using substitutions and chemistry....and was very positive about how good the cookies were. That kind of PR is exactly what we need, since a lot of the gf recipes are truly delicious, and we don't need to perpetuate the myth that our baked goods taste weird.

I got this from our local celiac support group. The leader got it from the magazine (link above) in a weekend local paper (I think it's national though - something like a Parade magazine). She was just thrilled to see it in a "national" way!

BAKING MIX recipe:

use cup for cup for wheat flour, EXCEPT in bread recipes:

2-1/3 c chickpea flour
2/3 c cornstarch
1/4 c sugar
3-1/2 t xanthan gum
1-1/2 t salt
1 t cream of tartar

Combine and store in airtight container.

SOUL DOG GF CHOC CHIP COOKIES:

1 c canola oil
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
2-1/3 c gf baking mix (see recipe above)
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 c gf choc chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking sheet. Combine oil and sugar in large bowl, beat with mixer on medium high speed. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until creamy. Add vanilla. Reduce to low speed and gradually add baking mix, baking soda and salt. Stir in choc chips. Drop by level teaspoons or small ice-cream scoop 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly. Bake 10-12 mins. Remove from pan, cool on wire racks. Makes about 2 dozen.

Quick, Easy -N- Fast Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

1 C. peanut butter
1 C. sugar
1 egg
1 t. baking soda

Cream the peanut butter with the sugar. Stir in the egg and baking soda. Roll into balls. If the dough is
initially too thin to roll let it sit 10 minutes and it will thicken. Bake at 350°F. until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown (do not overbake or they will turn hard and crumbly)

CUTOUTS

1
cup rice flour

1/2
cup tapioca flour

1
cup cornstarch

1
teaspoon baking powder

2 1/2
teaspoons xanthan gum

1
teaspoon salt

1
cup sugar

1
cup Butter Flavor Crisco

1
egg or 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute

2
teaspoons vanilla

1/4
cup potato starch, for kneading


Not the one? See other Gluten Free Dutch Sugar Cookies Recipes

60 mins Rolled Cookies
Picnic Rolled Cookies
Gluten-free Rolled Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Have on hand 2 ungreased cookie sheets.
In a small bowl, whish together the flour mix, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of your mixer, cream sugar and crisco. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, mixing enough to combine. The dough will be a soft ball. With your hands, knead in enough of the potato starch to make the dough easy to handle and roll out.
Using about half at a time, place a piece of plastic wrap over the ball and roll out to about 1/8 inch thickness.
Cut into desired shapes and place on pan.
Decorate with coloured sugars before baking or use frosting to decorate after baking.
(With this dough, you can use all the scraps.) Just scrape them together and roll out again. They will not get tough.
Bake for about 13 minutes. Cool very slightly before removing from the pan.

Hey Everybody!
I joined this group a month or so ago and have been so busy I haven't had to jump in on any conversations. Sorry. Anyway, Thanks so much for the receipe blog. I don't like to "cook" I do like to bake goodies. I have been recieving receipies from glutenfree.com but haven't tried them yet.
I live in a small town so getting the right ingredients has been a challenge. Good news though, we have brand new Whole Foods store that opened up about 20 miles away.

Dot's Lady - here is the first part of the article i told you about some time ago that Spark People sent to me. This was the first thing that got me to thinking that I should try to go GF. I'm pretty sure this doc has a website.
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

“Three Simple Steps to Thin” will help you...


Lose extra pounds safely-once and for all

STEP ONE: Flush false fat by banishing wheat. One of the most
common food allergens and a major cause of false fat in many
women is wheat. Wheat contains a protein called gluten, which is
difficult to break down, absorb and assimilate... all of which can
trigger fatigue, depression, bloating and intestinal gas.

The good news is it’s now easier than ever to steer clear of bloat-
inducing wheat. This week, try substituting breads made with
rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, or soy and oat; crackers made
with rice or potatoes; pasta made with rice, quinoa, or
buckwheat; and cookies made with rice, oat or millet flour. You’ll
find plenty of delicious options in your health food store or healthy
aisle of your supermarket.

You may find with this one simple step, you can digest your food
properly, rather than letting it sit in your gut and wreak havoc with
your digestive process and waistline!

Think about this. You didn’t diet. You didn’t run a marathon or
punish yourself with hours of boring exercise. You never went
hungry. You simply eliminated one food that can trigger
inflammation and pack on false fat. And with this easy step, you're
well on your way to shedding those unwanted pounds.

You may need to steer clear of other common food allergens
sometimes found to contribute to inflammation and “false fat.”

In my 21-Day Weight-Loss Plan report, I share these foods and
three natural anti-inflammatories I wouldn’t be without.

Dots - I'm with you there!

Kjeanne - yes, freezing works well until you discover they taste nearly as good frozen!!!
Although I try to time it with an event that I can take 1/2 the recipe to share.

I like LemonGingerGirl's recipes as they use 1/4 c or i/2 c. butter. I never make recipes using more than that for several reasons - wastage if it doesn't turn out, too large a batch or just too rich. And I hate the impossible math calculation for a recipe that calls for 3/4 c. butter.
There's 4 recipes I want to try - the crispy cheddar crackers, the Cream Cheese Meltaways/Sugar Cookies, the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies and a shortbread recipe.

That would be tough for me if I was the only one eating all these high calorie treats! I guess you could freeze them. All of the GF products I gotten freeze very well.

Thanks Kittah. I had not seen GingerLemonGirl's site before and I have about a hundred in my favourites. She has some great cookie and cracker recipes, several that I want to try. Only problem is that I am the only one who eats them!

I was doing the obligatory web search for crunchy, chewy, chocolatey, pummeled, shaped and baked goodness and ran across this....

http://gingerlemongirl.blogspot.com/

It is the 2007 cookie roundup linked from the Gluten Free Mommy site. Thought I'd share.

A happy holiday season to you all!
