Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookies
A quick plug is in order here. My mother sent me a box of Betty Crocker gluten-free chocolate chip cookie mix to try in Swaziland, and this weekend, I busted it out in honor of a Christmas in June party I attended. The dough ended up very crumbly, and I was a little doubtful as I shaped it into small balls with my hands. I wasn't sure how convincing their cookie act would be as I watched them begin to rise and expand in the oven. But, about 9 minutes later, they came out of the oven looking - and smelling - perfect. Perfect. As in, chocolate chip cookies exactly the way I remember them from my gluten days. Slightly browned on the edges, deliciously buttery, warm and chewy on the inside. This is the only gluten-free mix I've tried from Betty Crocker, and based on how fantastic these were (and how quickly they were gobbled up at the party I took them to),I would highly recommend them!
