Hey all! I am at college and don't have much time for baking. Luckily, my cafeteria will reemburse me for food I bring in - so now I get to try some cookies! I am also allergic to soy... so in your opinion, what is the best gluten free cookie and why? Explainations like "it was not dry" or "the flavor was nice" are specially helpful..

I really liked Enjoy Life Snickerdoodles. They are very cinnamon-y and chewy. :)

Unfortunately, I've not found a cookie yet that I've really liked... store bought or homemade. I guess I just have too good a memory of good old chocolate chip/toll house cookies and every one I've tried has either a gritty/crumbly texture or is too chewy/doughy.

Sorry... baked desserts just aren't in my diet anymore... and I used to love to bake!

My daughter likes Enjoy Life Snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, apple and lemon. She did like the brownie but went off of them. She also likes the Andean Dream chocolate chip, but not the other flavors.

I am also a snickerdoodle fan (dh hates them) and I also enjoyed TJ's gingersnaps and mini meringues.

Pamela's Pecan Shortbread and Shortbread Swirl Cookies are awesome! :)

They have a delicate flavor, and are not dust-dry like a lot of gluten free baked goods tend to be.

I've used the Pecan Shortbread Cookies crunched up as the basis for a crust for cheesecake....yum!!

Yeah, I wish I could have tried those, but Pamela uses potato starch :(

Love Pamela's. Right texture and great taste. Also NaNa's makes some incredible cookies. They are very moist good flavor. Only drawback is a little texture issue. I can't exactly explain it. I know I said they are moist, and they are, but the texture feels a little dry. Maybe it has to do with the flour they use. Definitely worth a try.

Thanks everyone! Keep the cookies coming!

So far I am a fan of Nana's and I haven't tried all the Pamelas yet.. or TJ's... Anyone ever done Whole Foods cookies too?

I thought Whole Foods cookies were fantastic (the ones from the Gluten Free Bakeshop) but I can't eat tapioca or soy and just about all of their things contain one or the other or both. They tasted to me like "regular" bakery cookies--the molassas one comes to mind.

OK, my son is the Celiac and I'm the baked goods lover (and not a Celiac). Here are my favorites (yes, I LOVE gluten-free cookies!):

Premade:

Pamela's Chocolate Chunk (actually I like most Pamela's, and the ones I don't like are because I don't like that type of cookie, having nothing to do with it being gluten free) We buy these by the case from Amazon and they never last long enought!

Glutino Wafer Cookies

Whole Foods Frozen Molasses (and my son loves the raisin nutmeal ones)

Apple's Bakery Molasses Gems

Mix:

Gluten Free Sensations

Whole Foods 365 Days gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know you asked about cookies, but also French Bakery has great frozen brownies.

Enjoy your cookies!

Yeah, my family used to fight over the chocolate chip ones, all but the nutmeal raisin ones have soy though.

The Trader Joe's ginger snaps are really delicious, but they have soy lecithin in them.

For boxed cookies, I love the Glutino chocolate covvered wafers and the chocolate filled bites. No idea as to soy status, i don't have any in the house to check. The Pamela's mini choc chip cookies in a bag are pretty tasty. And the Kinikinnick Smore'ables REALLY taste like graham crackers.

Thank you for all the suggestions!! I've never heard of Apple Bakery... and do you mean French MEADOW Bakery?

I must agree that I love the frozen cookies from Whole foods. I'm actually getting ready to eat my last peanut butter one and start thawing out my chocolate chip cookies. I live about an hour from the closest Whole foods though, so I always stock up...... Think I need a new freezer!

Sorry, yes, it probably is French Meadow. I was going from memory.

You can order online from Apple's Bakery.

Anyone else have favorites?

Glutino is by far the best in my opinion. they have the wafer cookies and some oreo copies the. i dont know the soy status on any of their products though. sorry!

pamela's are also very good. the chocolate chip and dark chocolate and butter cookies are my favorites. they are all a little on the dry side as far as cookies go but for me the flavor was good enough i didnt mind a little dry feeling :lol:

i like kinnikinnik graham crackers. good texture and very yummy. they make a good cheesecake crust too! and their k-toos are good but those are a strange cookie. they dont really taste like anything. just sweet enough to curb a sweet craving. kinnikinnik oreo copies are probably my favorite gluten free packaged cookies. if those are soy free they are by far my first recommendation!
