I'm finally on holidays for two whole weeks! It's grand to have all that time to myself to do whatever I want.
I only wish the weather over here would cooperate a little better. Wouldn't you know the minute school ended we had a deep freeze here in Ireland. All the roads are frozen with ice.
Since we can't go anywhere for a while my brother Dessie suggested I get out a few bowls and a mixer and make some bickies. He's forever trying to feed his sweet tooth, you know. By the way, you know what bickies are, don't you? Well, here in Ireland it's a nickname for biscuit, which is the same thing as a cookie in America.
Do you want to make cookies for a child who has food allergies? Dessie and I decided to roll up our sleeves and make a handy cookie recipe for all the kids in our Sous Club. This recipe is free from the top eight most common allergens, gluten, and corn, too!
1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (melted)
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (make sure your brand is made in a dedicated nut free facility)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons warm water
1/2 cup palm oil
1/2 cup refined sugar
1/4 cup applesauce (one individual sized plastic container is about 1/4 cup) About Apple SauceIf your apple sauce contains citric acid then that means it could be a corn based derivative.
1 tsp vanilla extract (to be corn-free it has to be homemade. Otherwise, just use vanilla beans or just skip the vanilla)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups of gluten-free flour mix (We used Better Batter brand)
1/2 cup more refined sugar to roll the cookies in before putting them on the sheet
Preheat your oven at 350° F.
Mix the palm oil, brown sugar, refined sugar, and two tablespoons of warm water. When it looks nice and creamy add the sunflower seed butter. Mix some more. Then scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix again. Now add the applesauce, vanilla, sea salt, and baking soda. Mix again, and then scrape down the sides of the bowl. Finally, add the gluten free flour and mix until a nice dough forms.
Roll the dough into little balls. They should each be the same size. We like to use a teaspoon to scoop the dough out of the bowl. We don't level the dough but leave it kind of heaping on the spoon. So technically, our cookies each use about 1 1/2 teaspoons of dough. Just roll the dough into balls and then roll them over the plate full of sugar. Place about a dozen cookies per sheet. We use silicon baking sheets at our house, but plain old parchment paper will do too.
About ChocolatePsst! read the labels on your brand of chocolate! The most popular brands will have soy lethicin in them!
This keeps the cookies from sticking to the sheet.
After you put your balls on the sheet take your thumb and make a dent in the middle of each cookie.
Now put the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes.
Right before they are done, put your chocolate chips into the microwave. Heat them for about a minute on high. Then stir until the chips are melted and smooth in the bowl.
When your cookies are done, get a spoon and drip the melted chocolate onto the dent in the middle of your cookies. Now you have to wait a while until the cookie cools off and the chocolate sets. You can put them in the fridge or freezer if you are in a hurry.
That's all you need to do. Enjoy the cookies, boys and girls!
