So we hosted some family for dinner. Being a celiac family, while the rest of our family is not can sometimes make meal gatherings difficult and stressful.
When our relative brought us this Oatmeal Gourmet Gluten Free Cookie mix by XO Baking Co. as a hostess gift; I have to admit, it sat in our pantry for quite a while.
I wasn’t expecting the picture and “unforgettably delicious” claim to be true. But on a day when I wanted a “quick” baking treat, I thought I’d try it.
At first, I was a bit disappointed that it is a cookie mix only. From the box I adored the cranberries and hearty appearance of the cooked cookie.
Any add ons from the oatmeal cookie mix are optional and not included.
You will need 1 large egg and 1/2 cup of softened butter.
I added 3/4 cup butterscotch chips, 1/2 cup shredded coconut and 3/4 raisins.
It mixed together really well. Almost reminded me how Gluten cookie dough would stick and mix so easily together.
I used a rounded table spoon to measure out the drop dough on the cookie sheet.
I found they needed 16 – 18 minutes – not the estimated 10-12 minutes to reach a lightly golden state with an oven at 350
I have to say my family was pleasantly surprised with how wonderful these gluten free cookies tasted!!
Chewy and delicious!
When you want to bake some cookies, but want something quick and convenient -this would be a great gluten free cookie mix box to keep in your pantry for such a time!
