Sharing my love and passions, gluten free cooking..essential oils..baking ...cleaning...sewing and loving my family
"A relationship is like a rose, How long it lasts, no one knows; Love can erase an awful past, Love can be yours, you'll see at last; To feel that love, it makes you sigh, To have it leave, you'd rather die; You hope you've found that special rose, 'Cause you love and care for the one you chose."

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
These are great, you can NOT tell they are gluten free!!
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 c. + 2 Tbsp. all purpose GF flour
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. GF rolled oats
3/4 c. chocolate chips
In a hand mixer, mix butter and sugar until just combined. Add egg and almond extract and mix again. Separately, mix flour, xanthan gum, salt and baking soda. Then mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Chill dough in freezer while oven preheats to 350 degrees. Spoon dough onto cookie sheet (should make approximately 1.5 dozen cookies) and bake for 12 - 15 minutes. Pies: are my gf pie crust and filled with cookie dough from above. Really fun and something different for lunch boxes or a tea party.
