Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

20130804-182844.jpg

I got this recipe off of the back of the Enjoy Life Brand chocolate chips! If you have been following this blog, you know that I love the products from Enjoy Life and recommend them for those who have food allergy issues.

I am not dairy free anymore so I changed the recipe slightly, here is my version below:

Ingredients:

2/3 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1/3 cup water

2 -1/4 cup all purpose GF flour (I used an almond blend from Gluten Free Mama)
1 tsp xanthan gum
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

1 bag of Enjoy Chocolate Chips!

Directions:

1. Preheat to 375 degrees.

2. Cream butter and add sugars, egg, vanilla and water.

3. Mix together flour and all other dry ingredients in a separate bowl.

4. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet and beat until combined.

5. Add chocolate chips!

I use a stainless steel scoop and dropped 9 cookies evenly spaced (2-3 inches apart) and I use parchment paper so I have less clean up.

Bake for about 8 mins and remove to cool on a cooling rack.

Final step- EAT THEM ALL!

7. Cover with lid and place in the oven on middle rack.

8. Cook for 4 hours, fork meat to test tenderness. If fork entered meat easily, go to next step. If NOT – cook another hour and test again.

9. Add carrots and potatoes and cook for another 1-2 hours. Check after 1 hour and test “fork tenderness”.

10. When tender remove from oven and serve!

This is an old school pot roast so feel free to remove the potatoes and whip with some cream, white cheddar and garlic as well!
