Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie MixMADE BY COOKING FOR ISAIAH IN LEVITTOWN, NEW YORK
Fresh from the oven, warm-and-gooey chocolate chip cookies are one of the top three satisfying criteria for happiness. So this chip-laden, paleo-certified mix convinces us that we could live a gluten-free life.
Mom and food media dynamo Silvana Nardone concocted it after a decade of practice cooking and baking for her severely gluten-intolerant son, Isaiah. A tall order, perhaps, for a girl born into an Italian-American, Brooklyn bakery-owning family, but one that she fulfilled with love that you can really taste.
In what feels like nine minutes of witchcraft, the minimal contents of this pouch (gluten-free flour, allergen-free chocolate chips, 100% pure Vermont maple syrup and baking soda) combined with your own butter and egg transform into such a delectable state that it requires superhuman willpower to let them cool for the two minutes Silvana recommends.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Keeping a stash of gluten-free cookies in the freezer is a wise move these days. You never know when a friend might be trying out the no-gluten thing. And when they’re cold, they’re even easier to spread butter pecan ice cream on them. We speak from experience.
