Chocolate Chip Cookies – Oh My Goodness are these good!

Hi Friends,If it’s one thing I have realized being gluten free is that gluten free cookie dough and cake batter does not taste good raw.  Come on, you know you eat cookie dough.  So this is how I’ve determined that cookies and cakes will taste good – if the dough or batter tastes good to begin with.  And here it is – the OMGoodness this is the BEST cookie dough ever!  It’s by my favorite gal – Jules Gluten Free.  It’s called Jules Gluten Free Cookie Mix.  It’s a blend of her special gluten free ingredients as a cookie dough base.  Then you add whatever goodies, like chocolate chips, that you want.  A-MA-ZING!  I took these little yummies to the office today and I got so many compliments.  You’ve gotta try these.

Chocolate Chip Cookies – Oh My!

For my addition, I added Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Chips.

Fast, Easy, Delicious Pancakes

I must say pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods. Aside from Créme Brulé French Toast (but that’s a different post). But today I experienced by far one of the BEST GF pancakes mixes I’ve ever tasted. It was Pamela’s Wheat-Free & Gluten Free Baking & Pancake Mix. The only ingredients required are eggs, water and oil. Pretty easy, breezy if you ask me. And voilà, pancakes on your plate.

The texture was the same as non-gf pancakes and the taste – well if you ask me the taste is as good as if not better than non-gf pancakes. They had a sweet taste with a hint of nutty flavor to them. So good. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

Gluten Free Mini Donuts – easy and tasty

So if you haven’t figured out, I’m not a great photographer, but I give it my all.  But what I am good at is having fun while cooking and baking.  Love it!  So a few months ago I was at Kohl’s and they were selling those “Babycakes” machines.  So I had to get the donut one.  Yes, I really did.  So I followed the recipe in the booklet for the Sour Cream Donuts, and made some minor tweeks for a really tasty morning treat that is super easy too.

Greek Yogurt Donuts

Ingredients:
1 1/3 cups Jules All Purpose Flour Mix
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup of Greek Yogurt (I used Fage 0% Fat – Plain)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
1. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl
2. In a separate bowl whisk together reamining ingredients.  Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients.  Using a mixer on medium speed, blend until smooth.  Batter will be thick.
3. Fill each cooking reservoir with about 2 tablespoons of batter.  I used an icing bag and filled it with the batter to help fill each of the resevoirs since the batter was so thick. 
4. Bak about 5-7 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into donut comes out clean.
5. Glaze or coat with powered sugar, cinnamon-sugar or chocolate/vanilla icing (see below)
Makes about 14 donuts

Vanilla or Chocolate Glaze for Donuts:
Ingredients:
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar, sifted*
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons hot water

Directions:
1. Combine melted butter with powdered sugar, stirring until well blended.  Stir in Vanilla.  Blend in 1 tablespoon of hot water and stir until smooth.
2. Add a little of the remaining hot water, if needed, to make a frosting consistency.
Makes about 2/3 cup

*To make chocolate glaze – take out 2 tablespoons of the powdered sugar and add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powdered instead.  Follow same directions.
