For a gift for a friend’s birthday, I halved the original recipe for Ranger Cookies.
Modified from KAF http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/PrintRecipeOld?RID=R725&radio=1
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed plus 4 tablespoons water
1/4 cup shortening (organic palmfruit)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
scant 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup teff flour
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 cup puffed brown rice cereal
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, set up flax mixture. Using an electric mixer, beat sugar, shortening, flax, and applesauce until fluffy. In another large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Add wet to dry; fold in the big chunks. Scoop onto a baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the centres spring back when touched and cookies have browned on the bottom. They will be soft due to the applesauce. Makes 27 using a 2-tablespoon scoop.
I have one more recipe I’d like to share, but since it’s part of dinner tonight, it’ll have to wait.
