COOKIES!! (Top 8 Free)

I made these today, and they are actually quite delicious!!  Fresh-baked cookies were always a weakness for me, and it's been hard going without.  I found a recipe that was wheat-free, but it called for an egg, which I am currently going without (for a reminder, the top 8 allergens are dairy, soy, wheat, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, and shellfish), so I had to find a substitute.  They turned out deliciously chewy. Enjoy!

Enjoy Life makes allergy safe chocolate chips, and they're AMAZING!!  I put them in these cookies the next time I made them and they were so delicious.
  • 1/2 cup dairy free margarine (I use Earth Balance dairy and soy free margarine)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, loosely packed 
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (this replaces the egg)
  • 2 cups rice flour 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
Cream the margarine and sugars together. Add the applesauce and cream the mixture until fluffy. Add dry ingredients. Beat the combination well. 

Bake at 350 F for 12 - 15 minutes.

The original recipe called for nuts and raisins, but I can't have nuts and I don't like raisins, lol.  They're a great base cookie, and you can mix in whatever fits your diet; chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, etc.  

(They don't look very pretty; I just plopped spoonfuls on the cookie sheet.  But they taste good!)
