  1. Can something be substituted for the soy flour. I can't have soy.


  1. Not bad for a gluten free cookie. If you think of it as a dessert, rather than the traditional chocolate chip cookie, you will not be disappointed. I didn't have the dairy free margarine, so I subbed a little less than 1/4 c. canola oil and added a tsp. of butter extract flavoring. I also added 1/2 tsp. of cream of tartar to help lighten the consistency of the dough. Cooking time at 350* was 15 minutes on my oven. Thanks for a good recipe!
  2. This was REALLY good! I modified it, and used white chocolate chunks, but otherwise I used the same recipe, and it was tasty! Making them with the tablespoon and then squishing them makes really small cookies; so if you want more than 2 1/2 dozen small cookies, I suggest doubling the recipe, cause they don't rise really at all.
  3. These are wonderful! I used semi sweet chocolate and they mixed up so quick and easy! A bit of a chewy cookie and hard to believe they're gluten free! Baked at 350* for 15 minutes as was suggested by previous reviewer and they came out great! Thank you for sharing! :)
