Farm-style GF oatmeal cookies
I loved making the farm-style oatmeal cookies in my Betty Crocker Cookie cookbook, so I adapted the recipe so the whole family could enjoy them.
375 deg. oven
Mix the following well
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup shortening (I used palm oil shortening)
1/2 cup milk (I used rice milk)
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups oatmeal (I used Bob's Redmill certified GF)
1 3/4 cups flour (I used white rice flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. Xanthan gum
3/4 tsp. salt
Drop by 1 inch balls on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten the balls and bake 8-10 min. and then remove immediately to a wire rack.
Okay...you got me on the use of sugar. I try not to ingest fructose but for cookies I give in...so sue me or thank me for this scrumptious adapted recipe...oh yeah...LOVE YA BETTY CROCKER!!!!!
I rode my bike 25 miles so far this week. One day 10 miles, another day 2, another 3, and another 10 mile trip...feelin' good!
Have a fun Friday and weekend...HUGS
