Sassy Sweets: Gluten and Dairy-Free Honey Cookies

Print Friendly and PDF
Happy Spring everyone!  I know it's been a while but we have some really awesome recipes to share over the next few weeks that I've been cooking and baking up in our kitchen.  Not to mention a recap of the best every 30th birthday one could have (in Paris, bien sur).

One of my favorite US cities is Chicago.  We always stay at the Palmer House and it is such a gorgeous place.  They have so many cool and interesting twists for a foodie like me, it's unreal.  The last time I was there, I was gifted some delicious honey from their rooftop bees.  I've kept it hidden in our cabinet because well, I wanted to make something absolutely perfect, showcasing the delicious and rich flavors they are able to coax out of some pretty ambitious city bees!

When I found these cookies from Bob Red Mill, I couldn't pass up the chance to put everything together, especially for Sister K who is still gluten and dairy free (although, she cheated in Paris but I don't think that counts, right?!). These cookies were almost a complete fail because as usual, I could hardly be bothered to read the recipe and I had about 3 dishes going on at one time.  These cookies SPREAD OUT!  So unlike my usual cram as many cookies onto a cookie sheet method, these have to be done in 6-cookie increments.

Plus, we only have one slipmat and had no parchment paper so there were about a solid hour of just baking 7.5 minute cookies.  And patient I am not.  I completely sampled a good number of them while doing so.  It's not overly complex, just a super simple yet delicious cookie that is dairy AND gluten free.  It's perfect for sister K, the spring, and would make a great ice cream sandwich!
Gluten and Dairy-Free Honey Cookies (adapted from Bob's Red Mill)
Serves:  15 (30 cookies)
1/2 cup canola oil
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup honey (really good honey)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour (I use 1:1 gluten free flour from Bob's but if you're not gluten free, you can use all-purpose)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup turbinado sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or slipmats.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine olive oil, sugar, and honey until fully combined and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined and sugar is dissolved.  Don't rush this!  It will take about 5 minutes.  Add flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix until just combined.

Chill for at least 30 minutes up to overnight, covered in the refrigerator

Place turbinado sugar in a small shallow dish.  Shape 1 tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball.  Roll it in the sugar.  Repeat until all balls have been rolled in sugar.  Place 2 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.  Bake for 7-8 minutes, until the cookies are golden in color.  Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.  These are best fresh or within 24 hours, even when stored as they lose their crispiness.

*NOTE:  The original recipe did not call for chilling but the dough was so wet that I couldn't form balls without getting it all over my hands.  Chilling it in the refrigerator firmed it right up!
