Spice (and Scissors) in the Kitchen: Gluten and Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

A good friend of mine found out a few months ago that she has a gluten intolerance. May not be such a big deal, but like me, she is a lacto-vegetarian... makes gluten-free baking a challenge. This chocolate chip cookie recipe to the rescue! Eggs are easily replaced with 1/4 cup of yogurt + 1 TB of cornstarch or vegan egg replacer. Make vegan by using vegan margarine (make sure it is gluten free!). I used Arrowhead Mills gluten free baking mix.

I packaged up the cookies in a Ball mason jar with a circle of vintage fabric closed in the the lid. And don't forget the vintage ribbon around the top! Cute, simple and easy craft.

As a side note, these cookies actually were not only really good, but also helped me to finally get off my behind and start this blog. I had been wanting to do it for the longest time, but could not decide on a name. My friend Deva at Sabjimata asked me for pics of the cookies and the recipe for her blog. I couldn't let all the traffic go to waste!  I had to give a url to link up to! :) 2 days of brainstorming, and Voila! Scissorsandspice.com. Thanks Deva (and congrats on Bindumati!).
