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.
