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.

http://pamelasproducts.com/allergy-information-2/

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.

    • Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals
    • Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head!  The glasses may not be clean!!  I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free)  another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is!  Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS)  i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!!  The humour and information has made me feel so much better  thanks all  xxx
    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph 
    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
