Gluten Free Goodies

20 Dec

Lots of people are going gluten free, so desserts can be tricky in room where half the people won’t eat goodies with wheat flour. My friend shared this super easy and really yummy cookie recipe with me. And who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter?!  They were such a huge hit at Thanksgiving, I’ll be making them again for Christmas!


Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 salt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

parchment paper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by spoonfuls onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 12 to 14 minutes or until puffed up and slightly browned. Cool on the baking sheet for about 4 or 5 minutes, (They will most likely fall apart if you skip this step) then transfer to wire an allow to cool.

Crunchy, Yummy Perfection!

21 Nov

I have been on the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. As much as I love the traditional Nestle Toll House cookie, my husband is a big fan of the Tate’s Chocolate chip cookie, so I set out to find a recipe to make them myself. I did find a recipe that said it was Tate’s but that’s not how they turned out. I found another one on the Girl Who Bakes blog and that is the one! I am sharing that recipe here and highly suggest you give them a try…absolutely delicious.



1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. (I was out of parchment paper so I lightly buttered the baking sheet.)

Beat the butter in a stand mixer, add sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix until evenly combined.

Add flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to butter mixture until combined. Add chocolate chips and stir with a spoon by hand until evenly distributed.

Drop the cookies using a spoon onto baking sheet and cook for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown, rotate the baking sheet halfway through.

Let the cookies rest for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Pour yourself a glass of cold milk and enjoy!

*I use different kinds of chips-milk chocolate, semisweet, white chocolate and sometimes Heath Bar bits, whatever makes you happy.
