Tumblr Turbinado Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are all the heck over my Tumblr dash.  I mean A LOT of pics!

Even though it is nearly 9pm, I had to make some.  I was very curious about a particular picture that calls itself "The Ultimate Guide to Chocolate Chip Cookies".  I am always up for a way to improve texture to GF, vegan cookies.  It's like an edible science experiment... without the dull, balding teacher.

This recipe uses baking soda AND baking powder.  I also used some Turbinado sugar as well as granulated.  I don't do brown sugar and usually substitute with the addition of maple syrup. I really love the larger size of this Turbinado sugar and the sweet crunch it provides.

I usually try to get a lot of cookies out of a recipe but this time I went for BIG cookies instead.

Another difference is these are baked at 350 instead of my usual 375.  Different is good.

Tumblr pics coming to life in my kitchen...

Preheat oven to 350.

4 oz margarine, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Turbinado sugar
1 cup GF baking mix
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Dash of salt
2/3 cup chocolate chips

Cream margarine and sugars until light.  Add your dry ingredients and mix until blended.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Place by 1-1/2 tablespoon balls onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 11 minutes.  Cool on pan for 3 minutes before removing to cool completely.

I like that they are crispy on the edges but still soft in the middle.  They didn't over spread which can be an eggless problem sometimes.  Overall, I'm pretty pleased!  I may try other versions too and bake my way thru the Ultimate Guide.

PS) the raw dough is pretty lovely with the large sugar granules.
