Gluten Free and Dairy Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are seriously the best Fall cookies EVER!  And they are gluten free and dairy free! Here are some tips to making the best cookies!

  1. Cream the butter or Crisco and sugar together with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  2. Use vanilla bean paste.
  3. Use some jello pudding dry mix in your gluten free baking to cut out any weird tastes from the gluten free flours.
  4. We love this gluten free flour mix.
  5. I love to use these parchment cookie sheet liners for easy clean up.
