First Post, First Recipe, and First Cookie

Well, Christmas is just weeks away, and what a better to start my blog than with cookies.  When I was in high school, I took a cooking class.  In this cooking class, I decided to do an extra credit and found a recipe where I made cookies out of cake mix.  And that is what inspired me to make this vegan, gluten free cookie recipe.

If you do not want to make your cookies vegan and gluten free, then follow this recipe that I used as my guide.

Ingredients:

3 cups or 1 bag of gluten free vanilla cake mix (like Bob’s Mills)*

2 Tbsp of egg replacement + 6 Tbsp of water; mix together with a fork or whisk
