    My gluten free chocolate chunk cookie is a bit of effort, but I wanted a cookie that tasted like a real chocolate chunk cookie. Most gluten free cookies are like styrofoam--I thought those of us who can't eat gluten deserve better than a styrofoam cookie.


    GF Flour Blend For This Recipe
    (makes enough for 2 batches of cookies)

    Sift flours at least three times to ensure it is well blended

    • 205 grams brown rice flour (Authentic Foods or Bob's Red Mill)
    • 105 grams white rice flour (Authentic Foods or Bob's Red Mill)
    • 48 grams sweet rice flour (Mochiko)
    • 48 grams oat flour (Bob's Red Mill)
    • 31 grams tapioca flour (Bob's Red Mill)
    • 5 grams xanthan (Bob's Red Mill)

    ::::::::::///////////::::::::::::::::///////////::::::::::::::::///////////::::::::::


    My GF cookie recipe was adapted from a wheat based recipe from the blog Not Without Salt. Since GF doesn't follow the rules, I made changes to sugar ratios and fats.


    The cookie dough must be rested before baking as gluten free flours take a while to full hydrate. I make my dough the day before and rest overnight in the refrigerator. But I've baked these after a couple hours rest.


    Bake at 360 for about 12 minutes on baking sheet lined with parchment. Rotate sheet after 6 mins.


    GF Chocolate Chip Cookie

    Whisk and set aside:

    • 220 grams GF flour blend
    • 5 grams fine sea salt
    • 4 grams baking soda

    Cream for 4 minutes with paddle attachment on medium low speed:

    • 115 grams unsalted butter, slightly softened (Kerrygold)
    • 50 grams full fat cream cheese, softened (Kraft Philadelphia)
    • 165 grams cane brown sugar (C&H)
    • 45 grams cane turbinado sugar (Wholesome)
    • 45 grams cane granulated sugar (C&H)

    Mix into creamed butter and sugars to fully incorporate:

    • 1 large egg
    • 10 grams vanilla extract or paste (Nielsen Massey paste)

    Mix in GF flour mixture untik just blended
    • Mix in 250 grams chocolate, chopped (Callebaut bittersweet or Trader Joe's 72% Dark Chocolate)
    Chill overnight in refrigerator


    I use a #40 scoop to potion out dough.
