Gluten Free Almond Sugar Cookies

This gluten free cookie recipe is an updated riff on the macaroon -- cookie-style. Lush deep flavor suggests a ultra rich buttery cookie (despite no butter) yet it still feels light in the mouth and the belly. They're sweet and chewy when warm out of the oven and crisp up nicely after cooling. I recommend enjoying them both ways! It's a crazy simple 3-ingredient recipe, and there are sure to be countless variations, but we enjoy this one so much, we've yet to experiment further.
Stay tuned though...

Gluten Free Almond Sugar Cookies

Ingredients
1 (8oz.) can almond paste
1/2 cup organic sugar (a
 scant 1/2 cup, possibly only 1/3 cup)
1 farm fresh/organic egg

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350.
Using a small food processor* (like a mini chopper/processor) add each ingredient individually and process between each ingredient. Process until smooth. Spoon rounded teaspoons of batter onto greased cookie sheet. Dip a fork into a bowl of water and flatten each cookie with the back of the fork. Re-dip fork in water after flattening each cookie. Cook 8-10 minutes -- until brown around the edges. 
* If using a regular size food processor, consider doubling the recipe.

Gluten Free Brownie Cookies

In a hurry? Need a sweet quick-fix fast? See Mavenjoy's pick for store-bought cookies and brownies and scones, oh my!

Had a craving for cookies and found a box of King Arthur gluten free brownies on hand. Remembered hearing that halving the ingredients added to boxed brownie mix conveniently produces cookie dough. And so it does BUT **Update** we tweaked the simple halving-hack to create a truly decadent cookie! This brownie mix is delicious for brownies too -- almost like a super rich fudge pie, but cookies are just fun and just one or two of these (gluten free!) cookies satisfies for a lighter sweet fix too. Depending on altitudes and ovens, experiment with your cooking time to hit your just-right texture.
Mavenjoy Tip: For a super treat, crumble these bad boys into this chocolate coffee ice cream recipe!

Gluten Free Brownie Cookies **Updated**

Ingredients
1 box King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Brownie Mix
1/3 cup gluten free flour, we like King Arthur's best 
1/3 cup melted grass-fed butter, or an oil like grapeseed
1 tablespoon water
2 farm fresh/organic eggs
3/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup or more walnuts, chopped (optional)

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheet.
Combine brownie mix and flour. Whisk together oil, water and eggs. Add egg mixture to brownie-flour mix and stir. Stir in nuts and chips. Dough will be stiff like cookie dough.
Drop batter by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes for gooey, chewy cookies or longer for crisp cookies. Chewy cookies will crisp up some after cooling too. Remove from pan immediately and either let cool on a rack or do the "gluten-free flip", i.e. turn upside down on plate to cool.
