Today I bring you what I was hoping to be a near replica of my beloved “Pecan Sandies” that I loved back in the day. The cookies turned out more cake-like then they did like shortbread, but that may have been my decision to use Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix instead of my GF Flour Mix (Carol’s sorghum mix). See, the recipe doesn’t call for any baking powder or soda, and Pamela’s has both. The cookies are still very tasty, just a different texture that I think I was hoping they would have. As a matter of fact, both Hannah & Jon loved these! The recipe for these comes from a friend, Lori, of Fake Food Free. Lori doesn’t bake gluten-free yet, but is interested in giving it a try. I can’t wait to see how her treats turn out.
Here are the changes that I made to the recipe:
- I used 1/4 cup of granulated sugar (I didn’t have any demerara).
- I used Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix in place of the whole wheat flour. Next time I am using Carol’s sorghum mix.
That is it. Very simple to mix & make. A perfect treat with coffee or tea.
Hope you all enjoyed week 1 of Cookie-A-Day! Next week will have 5 days of cookies! I am going to be making some old favorites next week, so make sure to keep coming back! Also, if you have any requests, post them in the comments & I will see what I can do to make them. Any old favorites you want converted to gluten-free? Email or leave a comment. I am happy to give it a go!
