So you just received your Granitestone bakeware set and you want to bake something. One of the easiest things to bake are cookies. Today I want to show you how to make my favorite gluten free cookies.
I have been baking for years! My favorite times to bake are when I can offer the cookies to my roommates or friends. I loved bringing them a plate of cookies to pick from and seeing the smile on their faces.
Up until recently, I had always thought gluten free baked goods were crumbly and lacked the taste of glutenous cookies. After about a year and a half of baking for my gluten free girlfriend (my GF GF), I think I've mastered the recipe for these wonderful cookies.
A couple notes on the cookies. First of all, if you want to make these glutenous cookies, you can easily just substitute the GF flour with All-Purpose flour. Secondly, we used salted butter because it gives the cookies an incredible taste that combines with the raisins to give an irresistible flavor. Therefore there is no need to add salt to the recipe.
1/2 cup salted butter (softened)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup gluten free flour blend
1 1/4 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of raisins (chocolate chips work as well)
1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
2. With hand mixer, beat softened butter with sugars until whipped. Add egg, vanilla, cinnamon, and baking soda until well combined.
3. With a spatula, fold in flour first, then oatmeal, and finally the raisins until combined.
4. Roll the dough into golf ball sized balls and place evenly on the baking sheet.
5. Bake for 9-13 minutes. I personally wait to see the edges have a solid golden brown color, and at that point I know they are done.
