Enjoy Life’s Cookies for Everyone

One of my fave allergy-friendly companies, Enjoy Life (I can’t seem to get enough of the boom CHOCO boom™ crispy rice bar) has come out with a cookbook of 150 cookie recipes: Enjoy Life’s Cookies for Everyone!:150 Delicious Gluten-Free Treats That Are Safe for Most Anyone with Food Allergies, Intolerances, or Sensitivities by Leslie Hammond and Betsy Laakso.

From my scanning of the recipes, it looks like these easy bake cookies will be perfect for your little (or, ahem, bigger) cookie monsters. Please note: I haven’t yet tried a recipe yet but will soon and do part two of this post. Alias of GoDairyFree.com has tried them out and it sounds like she loved, loved, loved.

The majority of the recipes are based on three allergen-friendly companies’ products and hinge upon these companies’ allergen statements and practices. The three companies are Enjoy Life, Bob’s Red Mill and Spectrum organic shortenings. Additionally, most recipes rely upon white sugar or superfine white sugar; however, there is a section for “healthier treats”.

Recipes are good for overseas market as all measurements are in both grams and cup measurements, Fahrenheit and Celsius (even gas marks for UK). Smart!

PLEASE NOTE: A rep from Enjoy Life recommends we use the volume measurements rather than weight as they had the better results this way.

I’m so excited to try them out. More soon.
