I’ve yet to find a store-bought gluten free cookie that does it for me,
and that’s not me being overly judgmental or a gluten-free food blogger elitist, I swear.
A gluten-free food blogger realist, maybe. But I’m not overly concerned with labels.
What I AM overly concerned with is; my grocer’s lack of sinful snacking options, fall approaching with a quickness, and how many minion memes I am STILL seeing on Facebook!
Let’s talk about this for a moment, internet. Isn’t it time we put this trend to rest? I say”trend” because my mother is likely reading and she doesn’t like curse words. Now I’m not downing the adorable nature of these flicks. They’re undeniably cute. All I’m saying is that Facebook is already full of ads I don’t want to look at, and I refuse to accept the other 75% of my news feed to be minion related!
Rant almost over.
Just for giggles, go look up “minion memes” and then tell me if I’m wrong. Yesterday I saw one that so simply (and tactfully) said “boobies”…
I think we’ve officially hit the bottom of the idea pool. Literal. Rock. Bottom.
Especially gluten-free ones.
Back to the task at hand. Want to know the two best things about this recipe? As long as I stop talking about minions, right? Swirly cookies look difficult but are honestly fairly simple. And because of the nature of gf baking, this recipe calls for
a lot some butter that makes it less sticky and easier to roll into, well a roll.Think about those uncooked, cinnamon roll dough tubes you can buy. It’s just a sheet of dough and a layer of goodness neatly rolled and pre-sliced.
Secondly, thanks to butter, these cookies are so rich and delicious that they can stand alone. No icing necessary.
Yes! Trust me, citizens of the internet, frosting can get lost. We don’t need frosting because frosting is another step and ten minutes of “cooking” that stands in the way of these cookies going into our mouths.
Open a can of frosting if you absolutely must, but then this recipe wont be quite as healthy and you may not be able to eat two with zero guilt. That’s all I’m saying.
If you use just your regular, average, run of the mill sugar the result is an almost caramel chewiness when this cookie is complete. When using Truvia, there is still that delicious, buttery sweet cookie taste. Just less of the caramel like chew. Either way I love these cookies. Skip the real sugar if you want to indulge more frequently or use the real sugar and attempt to eat just one. The choice is yours!
