i need a good recipe for gluten free chocolate chip cookies.? Answered

my daughter has a gluten allergy and i haven't found a good tasting replacement for chocolate chip cookies.


We struggled with chocolate chip cookies for years. Use a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe but instead of regular flour use 1/3 Corn Starch, 1/3 Potato Starch and 1/3 Tapioca Flour. Then add a Tsp of xanthum gum. Add liquids slowly so the mix doesn't get soupy. If it starts to look like pancake mix stop adding liquid.

A problem we ran into with coco chip cookies was recipes that tasted good would run all over. Oddly enough, parchment paper on the cookie sheet makes nice round cookies.

This is the ultimate Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookie courtesy of Alton Brown. I made it as part of a cookie buffet for my bridal shower (one of my bridesmaids has Celiac's), and you pretty much can't tell the difference between this cookie and a regular chocolate chip cookie. The secret lies in the 4 different constituents (tapioca and brown rice flours, corn starch, xanthum gum) that Alton uses to replace wheat flour, and they work wonderfully well. The only adjustment I made to the recipe was to add a full 2 tbls of vanilla instead of the 1 1/2 tbls the recipe called for.

Your daughter will be very happy if you make these for her!!
