Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies -Gluten Free

I love mint.  Really anything mint, but chocolate and mint are really good together!  I recently found some creme de menthe chunks(Andres brand) that were gluten free and knew I had to get some and use them in cookies!

Here is that recipe!  Enjoy!


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup demerara sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups creme de menthe baking pieces(I used chunks)
2-2/3 cups all purpose flour(I used Bob's Red Mill all purpose gluten free flour)
3/4 tsp guar gum

Blend together the butter, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and eggs until well mixed.
Stir in the creme de menthe pieces.
Stir in the flour slowly.

Ready to go chillin'

Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray cookie sheets with olive oil.
Form into one ounce balls.
Flatten slightly.

Flat and ready for the oven.

Place on baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Let cool on pans for around 2 minutes before removing to cooling racks.

Oh so yummy!

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.  I got 50 out of this batch.  Oh and this is a unique gluten free cookie.  It actually spread when baking!!!!

  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe! We are GF too at our house. Does it not need xanthan?

    Stopping by from the Crew!

    1. I use guar gum instead of xanthan gum. It's cheaper and works just as well, plus not as synthetic.
