Christmas Cookie Swap... Thrifty @ Chic Mom

I love cookies! Well, I actually love to MAKE cookies more than I like to EAT them. But, since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease....I haven't had a real cookie! It's been 3 weeks of pure cravings for something doughy and yummy! So, I made these GLUTEN-FREE Chocolate Chip Cookies. Are you excited? I just used some GF All-Purpose flour, to a CCC recipe, I'll be buying that more often, just not to share with anyone. The 1lb bag is $6! Anyway, go to Thrifty & Chic Mom to post your own cookies.

Here's the recipe:


• 3/4 cup sugar
• 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
• 1 cup butter, softened
• 2 large eggs,beaten
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour or gluten-free all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl by hand. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. The dough will be very stiff. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans if desired. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. The centers will be soft. Let cool completely then remove from cookie sheet.

They sound good!

Funny story, but my frenemy was diagnosed last year, right before my cookie swap. She made her cookies anyway, with the gluten, but couldn't taste them. They actually won for best tasting cookie. I made sure there was plenty gluten-free stuff for her to eat. :)
