Happy Tuesday, friends!
In honor of tomorrow being our first day of school, I thought I’d share Kensington’s G-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies with you!
Listen, if you have teenagers, then you understand what I’m about to say…if you notice your kid being very much like you, the last thing you do is draw attention to it. Am I right? It’s like repellent for a teenager to think they’re “just like mom/dad” but let me tell you, Kensington Shull is morphing so quickly into ME! When I was 14, I started not just baking, but actively cooking and making my family’s dinners. When I think back, that was the pivotal age where food became a hobby for me and creating my own menus/recipes became one of my favorite pastimes.
Fast forward some 25 years and here we are…my almost 14 year old cannot stay out of the kitchen. This summer, she has taken to making both savory and sweet recipes any chance she gets. Her favorite obsession? Cookies. She has been working on this cookie recipe all summer and the Shull family has happily been her taste-testers. The other day, she made a batch and Ashby’s friends all had them eaten before she could even plate them. They’re so delicious, so easy and, of course, so gluten-free. She used my phone last week to take photos of them so I could share this recipe with you and when I saw the pictures, I told her how great they turned out. Her exact words “Well, I’ve been watching you take pictures of every single thing we eat my whole life, so I knew how to do it”. Oh my mama heart!
Whether you need g-free in your house or not, you need to make these cookies as soon as you can 🙂 .Print
Easy and delicious cookies that just happen to be gluten-free!
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla paste (found near the vanilla extract)
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour (we use Namaste gf flour)
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a baking sheet with a non-stick spray. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, add in your sugars, egg, vanilla paste, and salt. Beat this mixture until creamy. Slowly beat in your flour. Stir in your chocolate chips.
- Drop cookie dough on to prepared baking sheet and bake about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Remove from oven and cool before enjoying
Kensington makes smaller cookies that don’t require a long time in the oven! This dough is very thick since she does not use water, oil or milk in the recipe. It produces a very moist cookie though!
