cookies for ondine

If you aren't gluten-intolerant, these are a good chocolate chip cookie. Nothing terribly unusual about them. However, if you are gluten-intolerant, or can't eat wheat, these are great. The consistency is excellent, they really stick together, and they taste fabulous.

1 1/2 C White Rice Flour
1/2 C Sweet Rice Flour
1/4 C Potato Starch flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp gf baking powder
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1 C butter
1 tsp vanilla
12 oz chocolate chips
1 C chopped nuts, opt.

Combine dry ingredients in small bowl. Cream sugars and butter till well blended. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture and combine. Stir in chips, nuts.

Drop by rounded tsp on an ungreased sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375 and cool on a wire rack.

If you aren't gluten-intolerant, I suspect one could make these with regular flour and omit the xanthan gum. This recipe made over 5 dozen cookies. I have never had such a good GF chocolate chip cookie. I could hardly tell they weren't made with wheat flour.

I put in about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans with the chips. They were a nice addition.
