I have been on a cookie kick lately but it can be hard to bake yummy treats when you have food allergies. I found a great recipe to share with you guys that has all the tastiness of regular cookies without the gluten or dairy. Let me know what you think!
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons gluten free flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup baking chocolate chips
1. Preheat the over to 375º and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. (I love the pink gingham parchment paper from Cost Plus) In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking power, baking soda and salt.
2. In a large bowl and using a fork, beat together the shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually mix in the flour mixture; stir in the chopped chocolate.
3. Using a 1½-inch scoop or a rounded tablespoon, drop the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Baking until golden at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer to a brown paper bag-lined surface or a wire rack to cool.
