So I made up a gluten-free and dairy- free cookie (at least from the recipes I have ever seen I have made up a recipe) and I am pretty proud of it as it has won over every person who has tried it. No one could tell it was dairy and gluten-free. Now don’t get scared of the spice in the cookies, it is just noticeable enough for you to say… “what is in that cookie?” So here it is my debut of my…
Chocolate Chip Spice Cookie
1/2 cup Shortening
3/4 cups light brown sugar
1/4 cup Truvia/Stevia sweetener (or any of your choice)
2 tbsp. almond milk
2 tbsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tbsp. baking soda
3/4 tbsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
3/4 bag dairy free chocolate chips
I used my food processor to mix all the ingredients with the bread blade and used a small bowel to mix the dry ingredients before adding them (see below). But mix with what you have 🙂
Preheat oven to 375* and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In your food processor (or you can combine in a bowel and use a hand or other mixer) combine shortening, brown sugar, truvia, almond milk, and vanilla.
Blend until well mixed scraping sides if needed.
Add egg and cream into mixture.
Add in the pumpkin pie spice and combine scraping sides.
In a small bowel combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
Add this dry mixture slowly into the food processor ( I add it in three sections) until combined.
Scrap sides before adding the dry mixture each time.
Once dry mixture is combined add in the chocolate chips
Using a small ice cream scoop drop round scoops onto the baking sheets with a little space to spread out in between.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until they are slightly brown. Don’t overbake. Allow to cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
I keep my cookies in one of two cookie jars. This rooster one (below) or my chicken one…
It reminds hubby of his grandmother always having cookies in her cookie jar when he was growing up 🙂 Look inside…Enjoy with someone you love 🙂
They look yummy.

I LOVE your cookie jar!
Thanks a nice neighbor gave them to me and I was so happy… they are just cute 🙂
Sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing.
I hope you try them… I made them gluten and dairy free but you don’t have to. The measurements are the same for dairy and flour products 🙂 I was happy to share my recipe 🙂
Hej from Sweden!

I love these little cookies… they are a good give away treat also. The rooster cookie jar and chicken one are so much fun to have 🙂
