I couldn't wait to get started trying out some of the samples that I received when we were at the Gluten-free Cooking Expo Vendor Fair.  The first one on the docket -- Doodles Gluten-free Nut Butter Cookie Mix.  Doodles Cookies have a whole line of cookie mixes that not only are gluten-free, but also organic.  You can check out their other offerings at

I used sunflower-seed butter as the nut butter, soy-free Earth Balance for the softened margarine, and 1/4 cup applesauce mixed with 1/4 teaspoon baking powder to take the place of the egg called for on the package.

Since we're huge fans of chocolate, I added 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter.  I have to tell you, these cookies were really good!   They had a nice texture and flavor.  Although I think that scratch baking is always the best option, having a mix on hand can be so much more convenient.  (Think about having to whip up a batch of cookies for an unexpected get-together.)  If you have a good mix on hand, and a few common ingredients, you can have tasty cookies in a jiff.

I'm excited to try out some of the other products the generous GF vendors shared with our Welcoming Kitchen!  Stay tuned for more reviews ...

Happy Cooking!
