Best Gluten Free Simple Cookies EVER!!!!

It's been almost a full year since I had to go gluten free (per my doc), and it's been difficult finding "goodies" that I like that aren't dry and kinda gross. The few I have found cost a whole lot more than I'd generally like to spend just to enjoy a cookie or a cupcake. :(

Yesterday, I decided to experiment with a Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix to make some cookies. I didn't use the chocolate cake mix because I'm also allergic to caffeine/chocolate, but I bet they would also work!

You'll laugh at how easy these are to make, yet how delicious they turn out!!

I made two versions, but once you get the hang of it you could basically make any kind of cookie you desire. :) This doesn't make a whole lot of cookies if you make them large like I do, but they are worth every single bite!

Gluten Free Super Moist Pistachio Cookies
1 Box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix*
1 Box Pistachio Jello Pudding Mix*
1/2 c. oil
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together until they form a wet yet clumpy batter. Place heaping tablespoons or rounded balls of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, a few inches apart since they spread a little. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the bottoms have just started to brown but they are still slightly moist on top. Let cool on cookie rack.

You can still enjoy while they are warm, or just eat them cool. Either way, they are light and crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside! :)

Gluten Free Super Moist Cheesecake and Reese's Pieces Cookies
1 Box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix*
1 Box Cream Cheese Jello Pudding*
1/2 c. oil
2 eggs
1/2 c. Reese's Pieces

Follow same baking instructions as above!

*Since I have a gluten allergy, I have to use these specific brands. However, if you do not have a gluten allergy, you should be able to substitute a regular cake mix and a store brand pudding if you'd like!

Enjoy!! Feel free to post comments of other mixtures you try, or how they turn out for you! I think I personally will need to invest in some Betty Crocker and Jello stock lol!! ;) My next batch will probably be Coconut Cream Pie Cookies... mmmmmm....

  1. Sounds great!

    I have a recipe for gluten free peanut butter cookies- it is so easy and everyone likes them! I thought I would share with you, because its tough to find G-free desserts.

    1 cup peanut butter- I use chunky
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    Mix all of it up and drop onto cookie sheet in small balls- you can smash with a fork if you want. Bake at 350 for 10 mins or so...
