  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put about a cup of powdered sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Cream the vegan buttery spread, vanilla extract, applesauce, salt, and granulated sugar.
  3. Reduce the mixer speed to low, and add the gluten free flour a half cup at a time, untill it is all incorporated. The dough will be very thick.
  4. Turn the mixer off and stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Roll the dough into one inch balls and place on the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 18-23 minutes, until the balls are golden brown on the bottom.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for about 15-20 minutes before rolling.
  8. While the cookies are warm, roll them in the powdered sugar. Let the cookies cool fully, then roll in the powdered sugar again to get a nice white coating.
  9. Store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

*I have made these with different gluten free flour blends. Sometimes, different brands act differently - they may be too dry or crumbly once you mix this dough. IF that is the case, add a little more vegan buttery spread until the dough comes together and you can form the dough into balls. (For example, when I use Glutino Flour, I have to add one extra tablespoon of buttery spread).
