Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve you’ve been living on a gluten free diet for awhile, you probably either settled on buying the gluten free cookies sold in stores or have your favorite gluten free recipe for chocolate chip cookies already.  With that said, I’m always on the lookout for a better recipe.

While researching and trying various recipes, I came across one in particular that has received great reviews from the Celiac community and was actually featured in the New York Times!  Give it a try and let us know how they turn out in the comments!

  7. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, and scoop or roll balls of cookie dough about the size of golfballs.
  8. Sprinkle lightly with coarse grained salt (be sure to wipe the pan between batches, or you will end up with extra salty cookies).

  10. Cool a minute on the cookie sheets, then remove to a cooling rack.
