Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies (wheat, dairy, egg, nut free)


After several years of trying different mixes and recipes on line, we finally got to a taste that we like.  Enjoy!  (the all purpose flour recipe below, I think, is from a food allergy magazine or either a gluten free book I have used for years, not sure.)



2/3 c.      shortening

½ c.         light brown sugar

½ c.         granulated sugar

1 tsp.      alcohol free vanilla extract

1 3.9 oz. applesauce (snack cup size)

1 ¾ c.     all purpose flour

½ tsp.     baking soda

½ tsp.     salt

¾ – 1 c. mini dairy free chocolate chips (we use Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Use ungreased cookie sheet.  In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla and applesauce.  In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt with a wire whisk.  Add to shortening mixture and combine until creamy.  Stir in chocolate chips and drop with a rounded teaspoon onto prepared baking sheet.

Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly brown.  Cool slightly on baking sheet and serve.  Makes approximately 24 cookies.
