No Bake Chocolate Drop Cookies

Free of: Gluten Free, Corn, Dairy, Soy, Nut*, Egg
 I love these cookies because they are easy to make and easy to convert into an allergy free cookie.  I think everyone probably has had one of these cookies and most of the recipes  for these cookies are basically the same.

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup of rice milk
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
3 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup nuts (optional)*
1/2 cup coconut (optional)
1 tsp vanilla

Boil together sugar, shortening, milk substitute, cocoa, and salt on medium heat until the sugar has melted.  Remove from the stove and add vanilla and the remaining ingredients.  Mix well and drop heaping tablespoons onto a waxed paper sheet.  Let chill in the refrigerator until firm.

I use McCain's oatmeal because they are gluten free.  I do know there is some dispute as to whether oatmeal grown in the same fields or processed side by side with wheat is tainted or not here in the US.  I will leave that to your best judgement.
