Bouchon Bakery Gluten-Free Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix
I've consumed far too many cookies in the past couple of days. I knew as I was eating them that I should stop, but I couldn't. They were just too good to put down and here we are two days after I baked about 18 cookies, and they are gone. All of them. Gone.
I'll confess, I had some help from my toddler and Mr. Misterbelly, but I packed away my fair share, washing a few down with a glass of Rioja for good measure. (Don't judge me!)
After trying AdHoc's Gluten-Free Waffle & Pancake Mix, I was really excited to see what other gluten-free delights Thomas Keller had in store and the Bouchon Bakery Gluten-Free Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix available exclusively through Williams-Sonoma did not disappoint.
The cookies are exceedingly simple to make, I even had my little one helping me add ingredients to the mixture, sampling a few of the chocolate chunks as we added those in, for quality assurance of course. I knew from tasting the batter (which carries the risk of salmonella poisoning from raw egg, and so on and so forth), that these were going to be good.
I baked them about 3 minutes longer than the directions called for, and would advise that you set your timer for 18 minutes and then go up in incremenets from there, because even at 23 or so minutes they looked a little under, but once cooled they were perfect. I tried one right out of the oven, burning my tongue in the process, but it was worth it. The flavor is exactly what you would expect from a normal chocolate chip cookie, but in another echelon of goodness. The brown sugar had an almost maple syrup-like flavor, and the mix of dark chocolate chips and chunks was divine.
The cookies held up decently overnight, and would have probably benefited from a few seconds in the microwave, but I was content eating them as they were. The only downside to the cookies (for me) is that they contain milk, not from the butter, but from milk powder, which if you're lactose intolerant as I am, you may want to watch out for.
The mix, made with Cup4Cup flour, is 100% gluten-free and developed by the hero to gluten-free foodies everywhere Chef Lena Kwak. You can read my interview with Chef Lena and check out a review of the AdHoc's Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix here.
