Perfect Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I apologize in advance for the lack of photos of these wonderful cookies, but my camera is on the fritz at the moment.

My daughter and I made these to take with us to a holiday party, knowing that they would probably be the only cookies that we could eat there. I also made some brownie cheesecake  bites (also gluten-free) that I will post separately.

Perfect Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 stick of butter softened

1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed into measuring cup tightly, it should retain the shape of cup when placed in bowl)

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 1/2 cups gluten-free baking mix (one with leavening added. I used Pamela’s Baking Mix)

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter and sugar together until well blended. Add egg and vanilla beat until light and fluffy. Add baking mix and chocolate chips and stir by hand until all mix is well incorporated.

Scoop 1 tbsp mounds of dough onto Silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. I get 12 cookies on standard 1/2 sheet pan. Press cookies slightly flat with fingers. They will spread slightly when baking.

Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until starting to brown on edges.

Cool on pans slightly (2 minutes or so) then remove from pan with spatula to cooling rack.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Y’all Come Back Now.

update: Our cookies were a hit with all the kids. As an extra bonus we met another gluten-free family who was glad to be able to eat something other than just what they brought too. Yay!!
