Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nate has a co-worker who can't have gluten.  He asked me if I could bake some of my chocolate chip cookies for her but gluten free.  
I'm off from work today and tomorrow trying to burn up vacation hours so I did some baking.

To make my award winning chocolate chip cookies gluten free, all I have to do is replace the flour.  Everything else is gluten free.

The other day at the grocery store we picked up a bag of gluten free flour.  It was the cheapest gluten free flour compared to the others at the store.  This bag was $5.49.  I read good reviews online about it so I figured this would be the one.

I cleaned my counters and pulled out everything I needed.

Here's the flour.

To my surprise, one of my eggs had twin yolks.  This has never happened to me in all my baking.  :)  Twin yolks is good luck right?


Dough.....at this point I took a small clean spoon, scooped dough and tasted.  It was a little gritty to me and I think it's because of the flour.

I baked the cookies for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

They turned out perfect.

I decided to taste one.

I broke it in half and took a bite.  AMAZING!  So good and I decided I would enter these into the town fair that starts tomorrow.

4 cookies ready for fair.

I dropped off cookies and got a free ticket.  I'm thinking of going at some point this weekend to see if I placed.


Thank you to everyone who came to my blog from Reddit.  And thank you to all the congrats.  I did place first for these cookies.  A new post on that coming soon.  :)

I have been getting several requests for the recipe so here it is.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies (Regular or gluten free)
1 cup brown sugar (packed) 1/2 cup white sugar 2 sticks butter (unsalted) 2 eggs (farm fresh or store bought) 2 tbsp water 1 tsp vanilla extract (I use my homemade vanilla) 2 1/2 cups flour (if making gluten free then use gluten free flour. I used pillsbury) 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp salt 2 cups chocolate chips (or a little more)
In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, mix 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar and 2 sticks of butter until combined. Then mix in 1 egg at a time. Then mix in 2 tbsp water and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Set aside.
In a small bowl, add 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp salt. Mix with a fork.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet and mix. Don't dump it all at once. Do it little by little. Once it's done, add your chocolate chips. I tend to put some extra chocolate chips. smile emoticon Mix in the chocolate chips.
To a non-stick or pam sprayed cookie sheet add dollops of cookie dough. Bake on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. (ovens can vary.....just watch them) This should make about 2 dozen depending how you scoop them on pan or if you eat any dough. haha smile emoticon
When you take them out of oven, let them rest on pan for about 3 minutes and then remove them with a spatula to a cooling rack. Once they are cooled you can add to a tupperware container or large ziploc bag.
I store the cookies with a slice of bread to keep them soft. This is a trick not many people know about. :)  
NOTE: Don't store bread with the cookies if you are making gluten free.
