I know we are always complaining that we wish the world had more good people! Well I have to say that I am surrounded by quite a few of them and consider myself very lucky.
One of these good people recently played a very important part and helped me succeed in something I was totally new at! Although I made sure it was well known how helpful they had been I still thought I owed that person a little treat as an extended thank you.
Now this person in particular can only eat gluten free treats and its not by choice. So I decided that I would bake their favourite cookies “Gluten Free Style”!
So below is the recipe I used for these Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies…..
- 14 tsp of butter (1 stick and 6 tsp)
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
Cream the butter with the sugar and then add the eggs and vanilla and the I added all of the below.
- 1 1/2 cups of gluten free prepared flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 cups of quaker oats
- 1 cup of raisins
So as you can see all I did is follow a regular oatmeal raisin cookie recipe and replaced regular flour with gluten free flour.
Spoon the mixture by the spoon or tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet and back for 10 minutes. Let rest on sheet for a minute or so and then place on wire rack until they have completely cooled down.
So next time someone helps you out with something, no matter how little it is, why not go the extra mile to say thank you and make them feel real special <3
