That’s right. In the words of my cousin Malia, “BC is rockin’ it gluten-free.”
Andy, with great joy, dove into the task of making these cookies last night. They were pretty simple.
The results? Overall, pretty good.
Like many (but definitely not all) gluten-free products, these cookies are a bit on the gritty side of life. I know that grittiness really bothers some people, and others not at all. I found that in the crispier parts of the cookies, however, the grittiness was not quite as noticeable.
Andy said that other than that, they tasted just like a wheat-based cookie. He found them to have plenty of chocolate chips, which I actually found surprising because he usually dumps bags of chips in his cookies.
Today, the cookies had a rich, buttery flavor that I did not taste when they were fresh out of the oven. This mix makes a good cookie, and if Betty Crocker can get a finer rice flour, then I think it will be excellent. (And I’m sure a company like Betty Crocker will keep working on it until they think it’s perfect.)
