Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies #SundaySupper
I miss my friend T.R. He would be so proud of me for making these Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies in his honor for this Sunday Supper event because they are sooooooo outside my baking comfort zone.
T.R. had a blog he loved; Gluten Free Crumbley and we met through Sunday Supper’s Sunday night twitter chats. T.R. and I would banter back and forth, barely staying on topic…if at all, and he always ‘got’ my warped sense of humor.
I was thrilled that we were able to meet in real life at a Food Wine Conference. His kindness and warmth always shined through with everything he did and he was one of the most positive people I knew.
When my company, Happylicious by Betsy was getting started. I brought batches of my eggless•edible chocolate chip cookie dough to the Food Wine Conference and had everyone sample it. Everyone loved the dough and I learned that I needed to expand my flavors. I decided to make edible gluten free cookie dough and you better believe that T.R. was my first phone call.
I do not live a gluten free lifestyle and needed to learn what ingredients were ok to use and which ones had to be avoided and why. T.R., true to form, helped me figure things out. He will always be part of the Happylicious success story because, without his help, I know I would not have been driven to make gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie dough balls.
T.R. was a huge fan of Happylicious by Betsy’s gluten free cookie dough balls. It brought me such joy knowing that my balls brought him happiness even as he battled cancer.
How great was T.R.’s sense of humor? Well, let’s put it to you this way, T.R. was one of the first people to order a Happylicious by Betsy t-shirt. The back of the shirt says, TASTE MY BALLS!
After each conference ended, T.R. and I were always part of the group that went out to dinner. We went to a restaurant where dancing on the tables is acceptable. He and I were up there boogeying away, laughing and joking. This year, T.R. was too ill to make the trip to the conference so we brought the dancing and love to him.
Shortly after the conference ended, T.R. passed away from duodenal cancer. It’s hard to describe the sadness I feel at the loss of my friend. T.R. was 29 years old. Yup, cancer really does suck!
The theme for this week’s Sunday Supper event is all about gluten free holiday recipes which is why I made Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have to admit, that all I wanted to do was call T.R. and talk to him about it. I had questions and didn’t have my friend to turn to for answers.
For example, I noticed that the consistency of Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are a tad grittier than those I make with all purpose flour. Why? I have no idea because T.R. was my guru. However, I am very thankful that my dinner guests loved them just the way they are which is really great news for all of us.
