King Arthur Gluten-Free Cookie Mix – Chocolate Chip Cookies

So far I am loving the new King Arthur gluten-free mixes, and this cookie mix is no exception!

This is a classic brown sugar cookie mix with no wheat, no milk, no eggs, no nuts and no soy. And, in case I haven’t mentioned this before the King Arthur gluten-free products are made in a dedicated allergen-free facility. Yeah!

The flour base for this mix is tapioca and rice. It does contain cornstarch.

The only ingredients you need to add are butter, one egg, and water. To make this allergen-free, substitutions were required. I used Earth Balance natural shortening in place of the butter. I find that shortening bars work well for cookie mixes. I used flax seed goop in place of the egg (1/4 cup equals one egg).

Perhaps because this was a brown sugar base or perhaps because the picture on the box enticed me to do so, I decided to add Sunspire chocolate chips. The result was the closest I have seen to a classic tollhouse cookie using gluten-free and allergen-free ingredients. This is definitely on my list of favorites!

Despite the blurry picture of my end result, these cookies were a big hit!

I think this mix would also make a great cookie-like crust for a pie or tart.

Has anyone else tried this? What do you think?

Disclosure: I received a free product sample from King Arthur Flour. I was not obligated to review the product or to write a positive review.

I absolutely love King Arthurs cookie mix! I make mine with Earth Balance non dairy buttery spread.

Bottom line, they are to die for.
