GF Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

My dad has had a gluten allergy for the last 18 years so basically all growing up, my mom was always making gluten free meals and gluten free desserts. She would never make a non gluten free meal or dessert for the rest of us. Everything was always just only gluten free so that she wouldn't have to cook twice. Early into it I started totally resenting gluten free anything and would purposefully avoid gluten free food just because it made me upset. Even things that were naturally gluten free, like a rice casserole or Rice Kirspy Treats. But ya, it's the Gluten free flour blends that have grossed me out the most. This is why I just Love regular bready pizzas and macaroni and cheese with regular floury noodles. No way did we ever get homemade bread. That would just make my dad too jealous. So ya, frustrating times!! Anyway, every now and then Im nice and I'll whip something up for my dad thats GF. I wanted to make Bisquick chocolate chip cookies because we had regular Bisquick in our pantry but we had GF Bisquick as well so I decided to make both especially since Biquick recipes don't take very long. The Top Photo Is Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free) and the bottom photo is Bisquick CHocolate Chip Cookies (Regular-not gluten free) The Gluten Free cookies turned out a lot puffier (obviously.) I was surprised at the taste of the cookies. Thought that using Bisquick would make for a somewhat less tasty chocolate chip cookie, but I was totally wrong. These cookies are VERY good. The texture is slightly chewier than your average cookie, and I absolutely Love that! I will definitely be making them again. 

Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup crisco
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

  1. I had no idea you could make cookies with Bisquick! I've never had to think about gluten free stuff until lately, when one of my close friends learned she is allergic. I know she has a rough time with it, but I bet it was extra rough growing up like that - from what I understand, gluten-free stuff wasn't so easy to come by even just a few years ago.
