Echo’s Friend’s Cookies

20130329-190809.jpg

Yesterday Echo went back to Doggy Day Care and had a blast again at Camp Run-A-Mutt South Bay! While I was there I got to talking with the awesome manager Julie about the adoption event coming up. She mentioned that they have vendors at these events and asked if I baked dog treats. Later when I was with Lindsey we cooked up an idea. 20130329-191507.jpg

While she was there today Lindsey and I ran all over so I could get all my Easter groceries. We also bought all the supplies for making awesome, mostly organic, non-GMO dog treats! Here’s what we made:

Snickerdoodle Cookies, Gluten-free (and regular)

I think I have mentioned this before but my mother has gone gluten-free and I am thinking about it, so today I am taking a standard snicker doodle recipe and making it gluten free! You can always make it with regular flour though!

• Add sugar and butter to your mixing bowl, mix well.

20130210-150242.jpg

• Add 2 eggs, mix well. (I added 3 because I made 1 1/2 x the recipe)

20130210-150527.jpg

20130210-150533.jpg

• Add baking soda, salt, cream of tarter, cinnamon, and GF flour, mix very very very well!
( Start very slow or flour will go everywhere, oh I have done this, it’s no fun)

• Next in a separate bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.

20130210-185226.jpg

• Roll your dough into consistent sized balls for whatever size cookie you wish, then roll in cinnamon sugar mixture.

• Place on parchment lined baking sheets. (You can even sprinkle on a little more cinnamon before baking if you so desire)

20130210-185350.jpg

20130210-185358.jpg

20130210-185405.jpg

• Chill your dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or the freezer for 5 before baking. (if you don’t do this your cookies will become very flat, like my first batch)

• Bake at 350° for 8 to 12 minutes depending on the size of your cookies.

Enjoy!

Calories per cookie, (if your dough only makes 24 cookies – 180 per cookie)
This is great compared to most Chocolate chip cookies!

Chunky chewy cookies

20120817-204529.jpg

I was totally craving cookies this week and I had finally bought more chocolate chips, so here they are! I even made a double batch so I could freeze part of it.

20120817-204626.jpg

This is my same base recipe I always use, just with different mix ins.

1- Cream butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.

20120817-204458.jpg

2- Add eggs, vanilla, baking soda, and salt

20120817-204855.jpg

4- Add mix ins – chocolate chips, etc.
Today I added: semi-sweet chips, milk chocolate chips, cocoanut, and Heath pieces.

5 – Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets

6 – Bake (I baked mine for a couple extra minutes to get crispy edges.)
