Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

Ok so my Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies were the hit of the year. But several of my neighbors couldn’t eat them because they were not gluten free. So I decided to make up a batch of Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies just for them! These were also a big hit–even with those who don’t need to eat gluten free. I used Krusteaz brand gluten free flour and Bob’s Red Mill Baking 1-1 GF flour to make these cookies. I had absolutely no problems with taste, texture or consistency. In fact, they were every bit as good as the original cookies. We loved them.

Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies are made with two bags of the Walmart brand mint fudge flavored baking chips. This is probably Walmart’s version of Andes creme de menthe baking chips. The cookies also include two cups of finely diced almonds. The mint flavor is just right–not too much that it overpowers the cookie and not too little that you don’t even notice it. The same with the almonds. Everyone detected something but could not tell me what they were tasting! I can’t tell you how many people have RAVED over these cookies!

The only thing I’ll tell you (whether you make these gluten free or NOT), is to make sure you stir, stir, stir the cookie dough once the final ingredients are added. (almonds, GF flour and mint fudge flavored baking chips). Stir beyond the cursory just incorporating the flour, and continue stirring until big lumps begin forming with the dough. This will take 4 to 5 minutes by hand.

Once the dough is stirred correctly then pack the dough into a large cookie scoop before leveling off. That way the cookie ingredients adhere well and won’t crumble out of the cookie scoop. This recipe requires a lot of flour, and this is the only way to get that perfect blend of ingredients with an utterly delightful full-bodied outcome.

This is a fantastic cookie to bake for the holidays and especially if you want to include something for your gluten free friends. Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies is the recipe you need for Christmas Cookie Exchanges, holiday parties or even as a dessert at the Christmas table. Enjoy.

Notes

© Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen
NOTE: My cookies took about 18 minutes to bake completely.
 
NOTE: You will probably need to stir the cookie dough about 5 minutes to get all the flour worked into it.
 
NOTE: Because this recipe uses so much flour, I usually keep stirring after the flour has been worked in so that the dough is no longer crumbly. I continue stirring until the dough starts adhering together in large clumps.
 
NOTE: If the dough crumbles when you place it on the cookie sheet, the dough either isn’t stirred well enough or the dough is not packed into the cookie scoop firmly enough.
