Jan’s Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies with Applesauce
These cookies will not go flat, shrink or get hard like most GF cookies.
2 Cups Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix (see recipe in flour mixes)
2 teaspoons Gluten Free baking powder (Clabber Girl)
1 1/4 Cups Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
5 Tablespoons softened Salted Butter
1/3 Cup additive free Applesauce
2 Tablespoons Pure Vanilla
8 oz. Cream cheese ( I use Philadelphia original)
2 Cup GF Chocolate chips or white chocolate chips
In mixing bowl whisk together pie crust flour mix, baking powder, brown sugar, and baking soda. Using mixer or food processor, then add eggs, softened butter, vanilla, applesauce, and cream cheese, blend until all incorporated and smooth. Remove beaters and fold in chocolate chips. Place dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes until dough is stiff. When ready to bake preheat oven to 350*F. Place dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet by a tablespoon each, place in oven and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until cookies start to brown. When done let cookies set for about 10 minutes then place them on cooling racks. Depending on how large you make your cookies, this should make about 3 dozen.
