Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies - Gluten Free

Submitted by: SCHELRY

Introduction

I have modified this recipe from the original found at www.landolakes.com, to make it also casein-free. if you don't have to worry about dairy or casein in your diet, you can go ahead and use 3/4 cup real butter. I also reduced the amount of chocolate chips from 2 cups to 1 1/4 cups because that's all I had on hand when I made them.

Also, I successfully used Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour instead of making the separate GF Blend as recommended by Land O Lakes (see "cooking instructions" below for their GF blend recipe).

Nutrition Facts Discrepancies: My recipe program calculates the nutrition as 257 calories per cookie. the landolakes website lists calories at 130 g per cookie (See all their nutrition facts under "cooking instructions" below). And of course SparkPeople calculates the calories as 262.2 per cookie. So, take the nutrition facts with a grain of salt, or calculate it yourself to get a number you are comfortable with.

Ingredients

    2 cups GF Flour mix (All Purpose Baking)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon xanthan gum
    cup Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread, softened
    cup brown sugar, firmly packed
    cup sugar
    2 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 1/4 cups chocolate chips, GF.

Directions

Heat oven to 375F. Combine flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, salt and xanthan gum in medium bowl. Set aside.

Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding flour mixture, until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. (DO NOT OVERBAKE.) Let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets.

Gluten-Free Flour Blend: To make Flour Blend, combine 2 cups rice flour, 2/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Store in container with tight-fitting lid; stir before using.

Recipe Tip
*Creaming the sugar and GF butter together is an important step. If you don't get this right these will come out cakey rather than chewy!!!

  • Not bad for gluten free. Almost like eating the real thing. I had a little trouble with the cookies sticking to the cookie sheet, but I solved that with a little cooking spray. - 11/7/09

    I thought these were pretty good, too, and of course my dear bf took a bite and exclaimed "you're hired!". That said, I personally would like them a little chewier than they came out. Still perfecting!
