Gluten-Free Chocolate-Chip Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Laura Meehan

Yummy, nobody-knows-they're-gluten-free cookies! Always a hit! Can use 2 1/4 cups of any other gluten-free flour instead of the cornstarch, tapioca flour, and rice flour if desired.

Awesome cookies!! I used arrowroot instead of cornstarch and brown rice syrup instead of both sugars, so I cut down shortening and margarine to 3 tablespoons each. You're right, nobody can tell they're gluten free - dangerous, becacuse they get eaten up by non celiacs if you're not quick enough :D Made for PAC fall 2009. Thanks for posting these treats!
