Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies (chocolate chip)

I’ve been working on a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe for a while, and finally I think I’ve perfected it.  No weird ingredients, gum-free, and economical if you are grinding your own flours.  These cookies are crisp on the outside, and chewy on the inside.  It’s the perfect combo.  This recipe is bean-free so go ahead, eat the cookie dough.  It really is good with no weird aftertaste.  *We cook/bake with eggs from our own hens so I don’t stress about eating raw eggs, but if you are buying eggs from the store, you may not want to eat any raw cookie dough, it’s your call.

Helpful Tip: If you only want to make a few cookies at a time, bake what you want then flash freeze cookie dough balls on a cookie sheet.  Once frozen remove dough balls from the cookie sheet and store in a zip top bag.  When you are ready for cookies, pull a few out of the bag, place on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350.  You’ll have to watch it as all freezers and ovens are different.  *If your cookie dough is frozen at 10 degrees it will take longer to bake than at 25 degrees.
