The Fall Cookies That Fooled All

Friday, October 8, 2010

Nothing ooozes fall to me more than chocolate chip cookies. Yes, I know, pumpkin lattes, muffins, cakes, and bread are a more typical choice, but let's not leave out the perfection of the simplicity of chocolate chip cookies.
These, my friend, are not just any chocolate cookie. Why keep things simple?! These are gluten free maple,peanut butter, pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies. Lengthy in name, big in taste and delicious, but very simple to make!

 Gluten Free Maple Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pamela's Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
1 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Yield: approximately 20 cookies
Cream butter and sugar, add egg and vanilla and beat together. Add Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and chocolate chips (and nuts) mix thoroughly. Place tablespoon sized scoops of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten. Bake in preheated 350° oven for approximately 15 minutes. Let cookies cool slightly and use a spatula to remove from cookie sheet.
Variation: Try white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, or butterscotch chips. Try pecans or macadamia nuts.
Fast & Easy: Use a small ice cream scooper or a tablespoon to form dough balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet, flatten and put in a freezer. When frozen, remove from the cookie sheet and store in a freezer bag. For hot, fresh cookies, remove from freezer, place dough on a greased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350° oven for 15 minutes

This is the basic recipe for Pamela's (the best gluten free baking mix) chocolate chip cookies. I added
a tablespoon of maple syrup, as much pumpkin spice as I thought necessary, and a 1/4-1/2 cup of Jif All Natural peanut butter (Sunbutter is also a great option.) 

These delicious cookies were served to the masses and all LOVED them. Most didn't even have a clue they were gluten free! Oh the trickery that happens around Halloween. . . . .  

Now, go make these cookies, grab a glass of milk (rice, soy, or whatever suits you) and continue enjoying fall.
Yes, I had these for breakfast.
