Simply Organic Gluten Free & Organic Spice Cookie Mix

Simply Organic characterizes their Spice Cookie Mix as,Sugar and spice and everything nice  . . . Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves combine to create a taste sensation that’s deliciously irresistible. Be prepared to bake a second batch — your first batch won’t be around for long.”

They are not kidding! I made my first batch tonight, and as I write this a couple of hours later, they’re gone and my testers and I loved them. These yummy cookies made the house smell like fall. They are a little heavy on the cloves, but it works in this mix. That nutmeg and clove smell makes me long for a cool breeze, boots and scarves and those amazing smells and tastes of the season.

The soft texture is enhanced by the vibrant flavors of these incredible cookies. I cooked for the minimum 8 minutes for a super soft result – not crispy, though that could be achieved with another couple of minutes in the oven, if you prefer. After tasting them, I began to think of all the places I am going to be taking these over the next few months and I went straight to the store locator to see where I could buy them. It looks like I’ll be ordering them online since the stores nearby don’t carry them, but I’ll definitely have to have a few boxes on hand.

The mix makes about 2 dozen cookies, and the box has several variations on it. Make it the regular way by adding 1 egg, 2 tsp of water, and 2 TBSP of butter. You can also use the information provided to make a vegan variation, a spice cake, or a spice cookie pie crust (Ooh. That one sounds great!) These are so easy to make, that as soon as your little one can stir, they can make them. No mixer and no complicated ingredients or instructions. Tip: I always bake gluten free cookies on parchment paper to avoid sticking for a perfect result each time.

Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Fair Trade Certified Cane Sugar, Organic Fair Trade Certified Sucana (Organic Dehydrated Cane Juice), Baking Soda, Xanthan Gum, Organic Cinnamon, Monocalcium Phosphate, Organic Corn Starch, Organic Ginger, Sea Salt, Organic Nutmeg, Organic Cloves.

Besides being great tasting and convenient, this mix is certified gluten free, certified organic, vegan, and certified fair trade. 1% of Simply Organic sales go toward organic agriculture and education.

They have a pretty extensive line of gluten free mixes that I’ll be working my way through and that are listed below.

    Made the easy spice cake version, adding dried cranberries as suggested on product website. It was moist and dark, and with cream cheese frosting, made a great single-layer birthday cake. Birthday girl loved it. I suspect it would have kept well in the refrig. but we gave most of it to her to take home.
