This is a recipe I got from a dear friend of mine. My family doesn’t follow a gluten-free lifestyle but my youngest son thought they were delicious. They are more decadent than you would think.
Tips for Making Gluten-Free Cookies
- Check all of your ingredients to make sure they are gluten-free.
- I learned through a friend that not all vanilla is created equal. While most vanilla extracts are gluten free, some are not. Rodelle has a gluten free vanilla that I used in this recipe.
- Not all chocolate chips are gluten-free. Nestle makes gluten free chocolate chips and those are what I used.
- Incorporate the ingredeints well. By mixing well you eliminte the worry of a gritty texture.
- Scoop a smaller cookie. Gluten-free cookies tend to be crumbly. These have a great texture.
- If you cook gluten-free regularly you probably already know these tips. I’m still learning about gluten-free baking.
Don’t they look delicious? Trust me when I say there’s rich chocolate goodness in every bite. If you’re wondering how to store these cookies, I put them in a plastic container on my counter. They lasted a few days but I think they would be fine longer.
I also shipped some to my son at college for a friend who is gluten-free. They held up and arrived intact.
If you’re not concerned with a gluten intolerance, you could also try my homemade brownie cookies, which are equally delicious.
It’s always a thoughtful gesture to include a gluten-free option when hosting a cookie exchange or holiday party. These cookies are no more difficult to make than any other recipe.
In fact, they are easier since there are less ingredients to measure out.
