I have started to redefine my blog by sharing about what I am exploring with my cooking or recipe.  These Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cookies were an exploration into seeing what textural difference would occur from making them the regular way and making them gluten free.  Unfortunately, I took the pictures only of the regular cookies because I had not yet translated my new blog idea into reality.  I can share that the primary textural difference with a gluten free cookie is its consistency is a little more crumbly.

In a future series, I am going to make gluten free cookies and vary a few common gluten free ingredients to see how it affects the end product.  In this gluten version, I wanted to get a nice big cookie.  Not big in size but big in density.  I like a cookie that you can really bite into.  I actual freeze my cookies to eat them, not to preserve them.  Do any of you freeze your cookies too?  The two tricks to making a dense cookie is to chill the dough and use an ice cream scooper to form a nice solid ball before baking.  The cookie balls are formed first.  Then, I put them in the fridge for a good 30 minutes.

A couple of other unique modifications or additions in this Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cookies recipe is I substituted plain Greek fat free yogurt, and I used Grandma’s famous strawberry jelly.  It is famous in our family.  To this day, grandma is still making this jelly and you can find jars of it in most of her children’s houses and in my kid’s places as well.
