Anyone Know Of Any Good Cookies?

The title pretty much says it all! I'm looking for a GOOD store bought cookie. A sandwich cookie would be nice. I made a batch of Betty Crocker gluten free chocolate chip cookies and they were pretty good but I am not a huge fan of chocolate.

Nut free too please. :)

Most store bought cookies are pretty crumbly/cakey. If I want cake I can buy or make it. Mi-Del makes some good gluten free Ginger Snaps and Cinnamon Snaps that are almost indistinguishable from the gluteniszed ones. Their Arrowroot cookies are very tasty, if a bit mellow. Their chocolate chip cookies are pretty boring, but then you don't like chocolate. (I would otherwise have suggested making Nestles Toll House cookies with Bob's Red Mill GP gluten free mix - very good and crispier than most gluteny ones.)

I have tried a bunch of gluten-free sandwich cookies and universally hate them. They are always absolutely sickly sweet. Sweeter than pure sugar. I don't know how they do that, but I don't want to, either. As a former Oreo addict I would sure like to learn about something as good. Oreos are sweet, but balanced. There's no reason someone could not make a gluten-free cookie which would be indistinguishable from a real Oreo.

And be careful about Newman's. I bought a package of Paul Newman's (or is it Newman's Own? I can't remember) "Wheat Free" "Dairy Free" sandwich cookies without reading the ingredients and it set me on the path to severe intestinal inflammation and very serious SIBO. Turns out they are made with barley flour - very definitely NOT gluten free. I chastised them for misleading labeling - after all, the only people who really care if something is wheat free are Celiacs or gluten intolerant people, right? They just quoted some lawyer words at me and implied that I should go away. And here I thought they were so responsible. I no longer eat any Paul Newman's products.

Pamela's website is WONDERFUL! They have an allergy chart that lists all of their products and possible allergens on one page.

I have written down a list of all the ones I can have and keep it in my purse so next time I'm in "the big city" I can buy some of the ones my local store doesn't carry. (Of course I will read the label first in case any changes have been made.)

Gluten-Free, If you are going to avoid iodine for the dh rash then most if not all of the cookies listed above are going to be on the no-no list. Dairy is iodine, as is carageenan, eggs b/c of the yolk & I could go on. But since hubs & I are doing it I will tell you what we found. Enjoy Life cookies. they are GREAT! No sandwich cookies but really GOOD cookies. They are free of:

gluten, wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish, shellfish, casein, potato, sesame & sulfites. We love all of their crunchy ones & they make a soft one that is double chocolate brownie or something like that & it is much like a brownie. Hubs puts warm cherry pie filling on top of it & it's YUM! Certified gluten-free.

Also, we found Lucy's chocolate chip cookies. No peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, gluten. Certified gluten-free. Now, they DO have gluten-free oats in them. Neither of us has reacted. You can taste the oats a bit which is really fine to us as we miss oatmeal cookies.

We just happened to have some of the Enjoy Life soft baked snickerdoodle cookies tonight. My mother in law brought them for the kids over the holidays; we'd never had them before. Yum! I thought they were really good.

Yeah they are aren't they? We were really surprised that none of their cookies taste "weird" especially since they don't have any of that stuff in them! They taste like regular old gluten cookies!

Here's a link to the company website:

And we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their chocolate bars & chocolate chips!

And here's a link for the Lucy's cookie site --- it's Dr. Lucy's on the site but the cookies we have leave off the "Dr."

What I like is Glutino sandwitch cookies. My son likes Udis and Pamilas which you can get at Walmart usually. Sometimes Krogers have them as well.

Thanks everyone! I'm headed to a bigger town this weekend for a trip to Whole Foods. Hopefully they will have some of these cookies there.

I know you want store bought, however, these are worth making!!!

These are better than any store bought cookie I have had! We all like different things, but I must say...I am in LOVE with Hodgson Mills Gluten Free Cookie mix., You can make a few different cookies from it. My daughter made these for me to try them out for Santa.. We used Enjoy Life chips and I was a very happy lady! I have used a few cookie mixes in 2 1/2 years, I'm super sensitive and these were wonderful! My gluten eating people liked them :) We have tried different mixes, this is by far the best i have had!

If you want store bought, Udis is good and I agree with the Ginger Snaps.

Enjoy :)

It's been a good long time since I had them, but I remember LOVING the Whole Foods gluten free kitchen

or whatever it's called, it's the store brand of gluten free stuff in the freezer. They make the BEST cookies.

I used to buy the chocolate chip ones, I loved them. Granted, it's probably been four years, because I've

had problems with sugar a long time. I also very much liked the Glutino sandwich cookies, and the wafer

cookies- like KitKats!

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to buy some cookies tomorrow. :)

Thanks for the recipes too. I have a really hard time baking anything because I live in a very high altitude at 8500 feet nothing comes out right and gets stale very quickly. I know that there are things that you can add for high altitude baking like corn starch but I just can not figure out how it all works.

If you get to a Whole Foods, I second Bunnie's suggestion of Gluten Free Bakeshop cookies. The Ginger Molassas ones are amazing.

    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • Thank you for your advices, Kareng and Ennis_TX. Hope you guys are still doing well with celiac. I will ask my doctor about the preparation for the Celiac screening and lymph node checking. By the way, do these test cost much? To Ennis_TX: Did you do any test or check for your lymph nodes, when you noticed them swelling. And did you have many of them? did you member their size? Were they hurt you. Sorry for asking to much. My doctor just told me do ultra sound. I dont know should I ask her to do another tests to make sure the reason of swelling lymph nodes
    • IF your still getting cramps look into supplementing with Magnesium, either Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors best in the glycinate powder. Depending on other symptoms and the way your body works depends on which form is best. Calm is best if you have hard stools, do not go daily with a BM you start it off small 1/4tsp and work it up to the full dose over a week or two. If you get loose stools cut back as you dose this to tolerance. Doctors best is easier on the stomach and will not cause D or loose stools like Calm but can cause you to really relax too much and cause very vivid dreams (this is a good sign that it is working) You will notice the cramps lessen with both of these. The cramps in combination with the numbness is a sign of magnesium deficiency which is caused by your damaged intestines normally and can be made worse by PPIs and a few other issues.
