These dainty gluten-free chocolate chip rice cookies are just perfect for evening tea. They taste heavenly when served warm and fresh out of the oven. Allow them to cool and they taste even better!! Yes, these little stars are baked out of rice flour and hence make them completely gluten-free. If the chocolate chips used are dairy free, then this will make these cookies vegan too. However, I did not get dairy free chocolate chips and hence used the normal ones.
