Every now and then, I get the whim to do some entertaining. Well, let me back up—We schedule people to come over to force ourselves to clean the house.
But I digress…
I do my best to be the proper hostess and take people’s dietary considerations in my menu planning. My daughter celebrated a birthday where one of her friends wasn’t able to enjoy any of the sweet treats that were available because of gluten intolerance. While I tried to make my best accommodations, his mother politely stated, “Don’t worry. We always bring food he can eat to parties.” But I do feel bad when someone is left out — especially a kid.
The Pillsbury® we know and love now has a gluten-free line of products. I received a sample of their gluten-free dough and gave it a go. (Hey, that rhymes!) I’ll admit, I’ve never baked gluten-free before so this would be a new experience for me.
I decided to make cookies using the Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
The package said it would make approximately 16 cookies, but I was able to squeeze out 20 using my cookie scoop. The dough was just a little more stiff and crumbly than what I’m used to — but that could also be the fact that I used it straight out of the fridge.
It didn’t take long to bake and once they’re out, you MUST wait a few minutes to put it on a cooling rack. Otherwise it’s too soft to handle.
