Freshly baked chocolate chocolate chip cookies for dessert and snacks. What is not to like? Especially if they are gluten free and thus safe for me to eat. Doublely good if they are totally yummy. Triple great if they are a simple mix you can stir together in a few minutes and drop onto cookie sheets in ball shapes that spread into perfect round tasty chocolate treats that look like you bought them at a bakery. And: they freeze well, important if you can’t eat them in a couple of days…. Did I say chocolate? And chocolate chips? I did!
Where can you get these delights? Aldi’s of course, and for $4 for the box which made nearly 30 cookies. Good deal. I bought them about 3 months ago and then made them up for a special birthday party I was going to the other weekend. It was way too hot to spend hours concocting cookies from scratch. But I wanted something totally delish for everyone who was there. And they were. Simply scrumpers! Some folks could hardly believe they were gluten free. People seem to have gotten the idea that all gluten free baked goods are mediocre or worse. I am here to tell you that such is not the case. In fact, some of my scratch gf versions of classic cookies are actually better gluten free! Like Russian teacakes, aka Mexican wedding cookies. They are incredible gf. Don’t get me wrong, there are still a number of cookies I haven’t been able to figure out gf but I will be trying…..
So if you need a chocolate cookie fix, by all means, bake up a batch of these dark flavorful treats. No one will believe they are gf but you!
