Nothing cheers me up like cookies, and nothing makes me want to cry like the thought of never having them again. So today I decided to convert my old favorite cookie recipe to GF.
1 and 1/4 cup GF all purpose baking mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup soften butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup regular organic sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 package GF chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a small bowl mix together with a wire whisk the Xanthan Gum, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
Pour flour into large bowl and stir a few times with a wooden spoon (so you don't get a giant dust cloud happening when you turn on the mixer) then turn the mixer back on and beat at low speed until just blended.
Stir in chocolate pieces.
(here comes the "lazy" part in my lazy cookies, since I don't have the time/will power to roll the dough into tiny balls- when I want cookies, I want them now!)
Liberally grease a STONE baking sheet and then pour the cookie dough on the sheet. Smooth out the dough until it looks like it's all even with no spot thicker than the other. Don't worry if the dough is not touching all sides of the pan.
Now place in the preheated oven (MUST be preheated to correct temp!) and bake exactly 10 minutes for gooey cookies or 12 for crisp cookies. Remove immediately from the oven and let cookies cool ON the stone ware. The heat in the pan continues to cook the cookies underneath for about 5 minutes giving them an amazing crust.
Once cooled, use a pizza cutter to cut into cute little bars and ENJOY!! :)
