I received the BEST compliment the other day. A friend of mine is a baker, like for a living. Anyway, she came over and tried one of my gluten-free chocolate chip cookies and to my surprise told me that they were great! Now, I know that some of you are thinking that she only said that to shield my feelings because you know that my cooking skills are, well, not the best. BUT I assure you that she actually meant it! Yay! I have my mother-in-law to thank (and maybe Nestle Tollhouse a bit, lol!) for showing me how to bake some pretty tasty cookies. The other secret is amazing gluten-free flour! I use Namaste. I buy mine at Costco, but you can also purchase it here: Namaste Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend.
This recipe is basically the Nestle recipe with some alterations to make sure that it’s gluten-free!
2 Cups Gluten Free Flour (Namaste)
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 Cup Coconut sugar (Again from Costco)
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Sticks of Butter (non-salted)
1 tsp salt
2 Cups of Chocolate Chips
Heat the oven to 375 F. Put the unwrapped butter in an oven safe dish and place in the oven while it is preheating. Allow the butter to melt partially.
Combine the Gluten free Flour, Salt, and Baking Soda in a bowl and mix together. Place aside.
Combine Coconut sugar, Brown sugar, Eggs, Vanilla and partially melted Butter in a bowl and mix. The consistency should be wet yet fluffy.
Start mixing the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. I do this in about three equal portions allowing the dry ingredients to completely mix into the wet before adding more.
After the wet and dry ingredients are completely mixed together, add the chocolate chips and fold them in. You can use your hands, I use my kitchen aid.
Once the dough is done, (after taking a bite, I’m sure) place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. It will be tempting to skip this part, but DON’T!!! The gluten-free flour needs to be chilled a little and stiffened to bake properly.
After the 30 minutes is up, simply scoop Tablespoon size balls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
