Freezer Chocolate Chip Cookies (GF)



FREEZER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
These are lovely straight out of the freezer; however, they may be kept in the refrigerator if you find the chocolate chips freeze too hard.   There is huge traffic to my blog and no one has said anything about the breakthrough bake mix. Waah!  Poor me is how I felt this morning.  Maybe it was just a big old anti-climax after all the false starts? Maybe everyone expected something more fancy or more special-sounding.  Believe me, the bake is lovely and it works!  It is low in carbs, low in fiber and gluten-free.

UPDATE:  This recipe needs to be finalized - there are other fully-tested chocolate chip cookies on this blog.  Sorry about that.  I don't have the time for quite a while to get back into the kitchen to develop recipes or test them. This one will have to wait for a more opportune time.  However, for the brave of heart, I think this recipe should work as written.

Liquid sucralose to equal 1 cup (250 mL)
  SPLENDA® Granular
3/4 cup butter, melted (175 mL)
1/2  cup granulated erythritol (125 mL)
1 egg
2 3/4 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix, (675 mL)
  page___
1 tsp baking soda (5 mL)
1/4  tsp salt (1 mL)
13/4  cups sugar free chocolate chips (425 mL)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (60 mL)
  
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).  In food processor or in bowl with electric mixer, combine SPLENDA® Granular, butter, erythritol and egg; process.  In medium bowl, combine Gluten-free Bake Mix, page___, baking soda and salt.  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients; process.  Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls (20 mL) onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.  Allow to cool completely on cookie sheet before sliding a thin spatula under the cookies to transfer to a sealed container for the freezer or refrigerator.

Variation:  Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies:  Use 2 eggs, 3/4 cup (175 mL) butter, 2 cups (500 mL) sugar free chocolate chips and 1 cup (250 mL) chopped walnuts.  Keep in the refrigerator.  This recipe makes a substantial, thick, chunky cookie; very good.   Yield: 34 cookies (2.4 g carbs).

Chocolate Chip Jumble Cookies:  For a lovely Christmas cookie, add some dried cranberries and shredded coconut to taste and reduce the chocolate chips or walnuts.
