Hello! Just popping in for a quick recipe today, it’s gorgeous out there, and we want to get outside!
One thing that I find a bit annoying is that with so many food restrictions, you really can’t use mixes if you want to bake something. Not that I want to use mixes all the time, especially not the ones with lots of chemicals, but back when I was just gluten free, there were a few mixes that I really liked. Namaste and Pamela’s make some really tasty cake mixes for example. But once I cut out eggs and dairy, that really cut down on using prepackaged products. And sometimes I am in a hurry, and just want to simplify things.
Well, I found a sugar cookie mix that works very well – 123 Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix. I just followed the instructions on the box, used a flax seed egg, and topped the cookies with a drizzle of melted chocolate. So easy!
Quick Sugar Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle
- 1 box 123 Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix
- 1 cup vegan buttery spread softened
- 2 Tablespoons ground golden flax seed + 4-5 Tablespoons water mixed
- 1 cup dairy free chocolate chips
Cream the buttery spread until fluffy. Add a 1/2 cup of the cookie mix and blend.
Add the flax egg, beat until incorporated. Add the rest of the cookie mix and beat until well combined.
Divide dough in half, and make into two discs. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 375. If you are going to do cutout cookies, flour your rolling pin and surface. I just made balls of dough and flattened them slightly, then placed them on parchment lined cookie sheets.
Bake for 7-10 minutes, until golden brown on edges. Keep an eye on them, don’t overbake or they will be too crisp.
Let cool on sheets for a few minutes, then transfer to wire racks.
For Chocolate Drizzle:
Place chocolate chips in bowl and microwave for one minute, then stir. If not fully melted, microwave in 10 second intervals until completely melted. Spoon into a ziploc bag and trim the end off, then squeeze and drizzle the chocolate over fully cooled cookies.
Place in the refrigerator to let the chocolate harden, then enjoy!
