Have you seen the big chocolate crinkle cookies at your gluten free bakery?
Gluten free crinkle cookies are always so tempting with their sugary glaze. These gluten free cookies are soft, delicious, and they are bursting with chocolaty mint flavor.
I have wanted to make a gluten free chocolate crinkle cookie for a long time. We made these gluten free brookies last week, but now we are ready for crinkle cookies!
There is something about forming dough balls and rolling them in powdered sugar that makes these cookies more hands-on and fun. My big hesitation is I was afraid I wouldn't have the self-control to eat just one. Do you have cookie recipes that you try not to make because you would eat them all?
If you are a cookie-a-holic like me, then you may need to make a few different cookie recipes so you have a lot of cookies on hand :-). Try these Anyway You Like Them Pantry Cookies and these Gluten Free Funfetti Sugar Cookies.
You will find these cookies will inspire your kids to find new ways to sneak them. If you want to try another fun crinkle cookie, give these Gluten Free Honey Crinkle Cookies a try too!
You may laugh, but when your kids try to distract you so they can steal another cookie, you will know exactly what I mean :-).
Add your dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
I have tested three gluten free flour blends in this recipe. I liked King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. This doesn't mean other blends won't work, I just haven't tested any others. Try to avoid flour blends that are high in starch.
As always, if your blend does not contain Xanthan Gum, you will need to add 1 teaspoon.
What cocoa powders are gluten free?
Mix up the wet and dry ingredients. I love using Rodelle Vanilla Extract. This vanilla is made from high-quality Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. The flavor really comes through in this cookie recipe.
Once you get your dough together, use a spoon to scoop out some dough. Roll the dough into balls and then roll in powdered sugar.
Is powdered sugar gluten free?
Powdered sugar is gluten free, but it is always important to read the label just to make sure.
Press the dough balls flat to about 1/2 inch and then bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
