Tips for cookies

Any item that needs baking and calls for butter seems to do well with palm oil shortening.  It worked well in 1-2-3 Gluten Free Sugar Cookie mix.  I could have sworn there was butter in there, but obviously there wasn't.  They are great tasting cookies, with a perfectly crumbly-in-the-mouth-not-in-the-hand texture.

The kids and my mom made both plain sugar cookies and cookies that tasted EXACTLY LIKE Pecan Sandies from that mix.  To make them like Pecan Sandies - just chop up pecans in the blender and add to the dough.  Gee, that was simple. 

Tomorrow or the next day I will be making gf/cf Chex Mix and gf/cf macadamia nut cookies.

  1. Oh, and the cookies were also made with egg replacer (I think that was OrgraN egg replacer). Did not change the texture at all.
