I'm kind of a traditionalist when it comes to cookies and chocolate chip are my hands-down favorite. It's a simple cookie, but it's a classic for a reason. When I make boxes of cookies at the holidays for my loved ones, chocolate chip cookies are always included. What's not to love? A good one, in my book, is buttery and soft with a hint of salt and a crispness to its edges. Needless to say, I was skeptical when the first batch of these came out of the oven made using our new Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. There was no way they would be as good as wheat-based cookies. I was wrong. They were absolutely wonderful. I bet you could place a batch of these next to a conventional batch and people would be none-the-wiser.
Don't believe me? Sally from Yakima, WA, recently told us, "I am a happy woman!!! I made chocolate chip cookies using your gluten free 1-to-1 baking mix and they were fantastic! They tasted every bit like a toll house choc chip cookie, if not better. I actually had to hide the cookies from my 16 year old son or they would have been gone in a flash. I woke up to lights on in the middle of the night in our kitchen and storage room. I found my son rooting through things, when I asked him what he was doing he said 'trying to find the choc chip cookies!'"
Make a batch of these for your loved ones and show them just how good gluten free can be.
