Simple recipes to bake this fall
As the temperature continues to drop and COVID-19 continues to keep us inside more than we would like, sometimes the only thing to do is pull out your favorite apron and get to baking.
Here are two of my favorite Fall-inspired Gluten Free cookie recipes.
First comes first, all thanks to Trader Joe’s: these Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies only require butter, vanilla and your choice of milk. The base of these cookies includes gluten-free almond flour, coconut flour and tapioca starch; plus, they are topped with semi-sweet non-dairy chocolate chips making these cookies not only gluten free but vegan too.
Before baking, in order to create a cozy Fall feeling, you’ll add half a bag of Nestle butterscotch morsels to the mix. This step is not required, but certainly adds that Fall and cozy touch.
After the ingredients are mixed, place around 12 balls of dough on a baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. This pre-mixed dry ingredient package doesn’t disappoint, the recipe is located on the box and is only a speedy 10-minute bake.
Trust me, the mix of chocolate and butterscotch will send your roommates running to the kitchen and will create a sweet fall aroma.
Likewise, nothing screams Fall more than Pumpkin flavored bakery items and I have the perfect Gluten-Free Pumpkin cookies for you.
This Pumpkin cookie recipe is from “Amy In The Kitchen,” which is an online website filled with made-from-scratch recipes.
This recipe specifically requires canned pumpkin puree and Bob’s Red Mill pre-made gluten-free flour blend. Although this recipe doesn’t come pre-packaged like the recipe above, these cookies are still extremely easy to make.
All you have to do is first mix the wet ingredients — sugars, pumpkin, eggs and vanilla — in one bowl, and then whisk the dry ingredients — flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice — into another. Then, you combine the wet and dry ingredients together and place 1 tablespoon sized dough balls along a baking sheet. Baked at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes, your cookies will be done and smelling fantastic.
As an extra touch, you can also make a light cream cheese frosting that will be drizzled over your cookies once they cool.
The entire recipe for these delicious cookies can be found online at “Amy In The Kitchen”.
