10th Annual Cookie Weekend….with a twist

Cookie Collection

We embarked upon the 10th annual cookie bake off with the intention of dialing it back to limit our fatigue………

Well, we had a successful cookie weekend, but as for cutting back on the number of cookies, we were not as successful.  It was a fabulously fun and tiring weekend.  It has become one of those traditions that the bakers and the nibblers all look forward to!

Gluten and Dairy Free Cookie

I did experiment with a gluten and dairy free recipe that turned out pretty darn awesome.  It still may need some tweaking because it was a little dry.  Oh, but did it hit the spot!  I took my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and substituted gluten free flour for the all purpose flour and coconut oil for the butter. The chocolate chips were soy, dairy, and gluten free.  I accidentally put an extra 1/4 teaspoon of salt (Himalayan) in the batter, but I think I liked it that way.  If I make it again, the salt will be dropped back to recipe levels, just to experiment.

Our pitiful and comical relief came from the pups.  One was still recovering from surgery and had to be put in a crate to keep him from going bonkers over the kitchen action.  Once he fell asleep, he was totally out of it.  His brother enjoyed poaching chew toys when the patient was sleeping or out on a bathroom break.  Quite the pair!

  1. Hi bakey Katie 😀 How exciting !! Your cookies look delicious, tasty, mouth watering and scrumptious 😀 No cookie for me then ? I’ll take a dog chew instead !! 😉
    A very Merry Christmas to you and your family my friend. Ralph xox 😀

  2. Your cookies look wonderful! I made a bunch, too, but it seems my kids always devour the chocolate kiss ones and not so much the rest. Maybe next year I’ll just have to quintuple the batch!

    Have a great Christmas!
