Alton Brown - Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Feej3940

Adapted from "Good Eats". We thought we would give it a try. My husband was told to try to reduce his wheat & gluten. They are SO GOOD! You wouldn't even know they were gluten free! This was my first gluten free recipe to try & I'm not nervous anymore!

To a family who is new to cooking without gluten- these cookies were easy to make and really easy to eat! I only had white rice flour on hand and the cookies turned out GREAT. Make sure to keep the dough in the fridge the entire hour before cooking.
