My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am so excited about these chocolate chip cookies!  They are slightly chewy on the inside with a perfectly crisp outside. The taste and texture of these cookies couldn't be any more perfect. No one can believe that they are "Jazzy safe". If you like chocolate chip cookies, they should go to the top of your must try list.

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 sticks dairy free margarine
1 tbsp corn syrup
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup safe chocolate chips

Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the sugar and margarine. Add the corn syrup and vanilla then beat again. Add the flour mixture then beat until thoroughly combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Roll a tablespoonful into a ball them flatten slightly, 2" apart, on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
*  Makes about 36 cookies.
