Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 sticks butter; at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ½ cup GF flour mix
  • 1 tsp. xantham gum
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Combine the gluten free baking mix, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt together in a large bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Beat with a whisk until there are no lumps of butter remaining and the consistency is smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla and eggs and whisk until completely incorporated. Add the dry mix and gently fold until almost completely incorporated but there is still a little dry powder  remaining. Add the chocolate chips and mix just until combined and no dry ingredients remain visible. Evenly scoop cookie batter onto prepared sheet trays lined with parchment paper, and bake at 350 degrees until set and evenly golden brown, about 15 minutes.
