Matcha Blueberry Cookies #GlutenFree #ProductReview

My best pick for this month's gluten-free goodies from Glutino includes cake mix, cookie  mix, cupcake mix, brownie mix, chocolate cream cookies (which is not in the photo since the kids have opened it up as soon as  it arrived), chocolate wafers,  pretzels, and chips.  I will be busy baking this month since I got  most of their  baking mixes.   Baking is not my cup of tea but I like how simple the recipes are in the back of these boxes.  It is  easier for a non-enthusiast baker like me to  make them.

 Since it is holiday season, I decided to  bake the cookies first.  Here's the recipe:
  • 1 box Gluttonous gluten-free sugar cookie mix
  • 6 tbsp of softened butter
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 tbsp matcha blueberry  powder
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkle
  • 1 tsp of pandan flavor, you can use vanilla
  • Optional : several drops of food coloring (I did not use  any because the pandan flavor has a green color already)
  • Optional : 2 tbsp sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon kept separately for coating the cookies.  (I replaced this with sprinkles)

 For those of you who do not know what pandan flavoring is, Pandan (Pandanus amaryllifolius) is  an Asian herb in the Pandanus (screwpine) genus, which is commonly known as pandan leaves and is used widely in Southeast Asian cooking as a flavoring.  We used to  put this in the rice when we cook it as it gives that  very  appetizing aroma to the rice, kind of like the smell of a jasmine rice.  
But anyway, here is how these cookies were made:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl or mixer,  beat the butter until fluffy, scrape the bowl.

  • Add  the  sugar cookie mix.  Mix to combine the two.
  • Add eggs and the pandan (or vanilla and food coloring if you desired) Mix thoroughly.  Roll into 1 inch balls.  I used my cookie scooper.

  •  Add sprinkles on top.  I tried to roll it into the sprinkle but it is too much so I decided to just   sprinkle some on top.  
  • Set 1 inch apart  on a lightly greased  or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.  

 I also sprinkled some powdered sugar.  My boys have sweet tooth so  they thought these cookies aren't sweet enough.  Needless to say, they ate it all.  Thanks again Glutino!  I will be baking the cupcakes next, maybe this weekend with the help of the kiddos.

My son would LOVE these cookies just because they are green! We are not a gluten free family, but I have a lot of friends who have to be.

I enjoyed Matcha for a while but quickly became bored of it. I think if I made something like this I'd be feeling totally different. I'm going to give them a try ,they look amazing! - Jeanine

I've been researching a gluten-free diet for my son (with apraxia) and me (with pcos). Sugar cuties will make the change all better!

These would be an awesome treat for my son who is gluten free. I in fact love the taste of gluten free foods and I haven't used matcha yet so I will have to make these for the holidays. Thanks for sharing.
