Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ChefArani

This recipe results in delicious chocolate chip cookies that taste quite a bit like classic Tollhouse recipe cookies, but is gluten free. I've tried many recipes for gluten free treats, and so far this is my favorite - my kid brother didn't even know they were gluten free! You can experiment with the flours if you like, let me know of other combo's that work well! OPTIONAL: you can leave out the egg yolks if your sensitive to them and they'll be just as yummy, only flatter. If you do this freeze them for a little longer.

The recipe was scaled by half and I still got over 2 dozen cookies. The rapadura sugar was substitute with 1/4 cup organic brown sugar for half the recipe. I did not have coconut flour but did have unsweetened coconut which was ground to a flour using the Vita-Mix. Putting these cookies in the freezer for awhile is essential. The dough was quite firm after being in the freezer but still spread quite a bit during the baking process. These cookies have a very nice texture. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
