Chocolate Chip Maple Raisin Cookies

Yummy yum yum!  I love baking with this mix!! I like to be creative when adding in my "add ins", my "extras".

This time I added Tahitian Vanilla extract, maple syrup, bittersweet chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, xanthan gum and raisins.

The mix is King Arthur.

First I prepare what the mix calls for: water, butter, eggs, the mix and vanilla extract.

Then I wii out my special tahitian vanilla pure extract.  It gives it a little kick.

Then I take out of the fridge the unsalted butter, 1 stick.  I soften it in the microwave and begin to follow instructions for this mix.  This mix comes plain.  No chips, so be prepared to add in your own special stuff.  

Before I added the extras I added in 1 tbsp. maple syrup, 1/4 tsp xanthan gum, 1tsp tahitian vanilla extract and I mixed well with an electric mixer.

Then I added in 2/3 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips
Almost 1 cup of mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 box of raisins

Masterpiece!! They came out sooo good!  And as an added topping for Halloween? or any holiday? Add Betty Crocker Whipped or Buttercream (gluten-free) icing on top of the cookie and top with a second cookie making cookie sandwich! For Halloween?  Beat in 1-2 tsp. black food coloring or orange food coloring.

P.S.!! Microwave the cookies for about 12 seconds before serving (without the icing).

Enjoy!! xoxo Julie
Have a spooktacular Halloween!!
