GF KOB
Gluten & Dairy Free
Course Dessert

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup Margarine I use a solid margarine
  • 3/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 cups My All Purpose Flour or Kinnikinnick 1:1 Flour Blend See notes below for my recipe and notes about Kinnikinnick Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Xantham Gum
  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans, optional
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chps

Instructions
 

  • Cream margarine and sugar for 3 minutes. Add sugars, beat thoroughly.
  • Bean in eggs, vanilla, baking soda, cinnamon and flour.
  • Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
  • Use your small or medium scoop and drop cookies onto parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand or a fork that has been dipped in water.
  • You can place a chocolate chip and/or a nut on top of each cookie. I found heart chocolates and placed one on top of each cookie before I baked.
  • Bake in a 375 F degree oven for 8 to 11 minutes.
  • If you want a chewy cookie, bake it until the sides of the cookie are brown and the middle is still soft.
  • Set the cookie sheet on a cooling rack to cool for 10 minutes. Do not touch the cookies or they will crumble. After they have cooled for 10 minutes, use a flipper and transfer cookies to cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

These cookies taste great and my celiac and non celiac family members all love them!  
I make my own flour blend and you can get the recipe on my website.  If you prefer to not make your own flour, I have found that Kinnikinnick's 1:1 flour blend works well.  If you use Kinnikinnick's then DO NOT add the xantham gum from my recipe as they already have a binder in the flour.  You can buy small boxes in the store, but I found you can order a case online.
I use my scoops to make the cookie making easy.  To scoop out a pan of cookies takes seconds with scoops.  
My husband is a diabetic, therefore I use my small scoop to make little cookies and they are less carbs for him.  It also makes it easy for him to figure out carbs as they are always the same size every time I make them!
If you have trouble finding xantham gum, you can order online.
If you are a celiac please be careful with chocolate chips, many have gluten!  So read your labels.  If you want to be safe and not read labels, you can purchase Enjoy Life brand and they are safe!  They are Gluten Free and they are also free of the top 8 allergens.
