Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I originally found this recipe to make as a Christmas gift for one of my friends since she tends to avoid wheat gluten.

Its always been hit and miss for me when it comes to gluten-free cookies, but I think these were really delicious and worth it!

I found the original recipe here.  The only changes that were made to it, were I used dark chocolate chips instead of milk, and when they were made my friend used three large eggs instead of two jumbo.

Gluten-free double chocolate chip cookies
Ingredients
  • 2 cups (280 grams) all-purpose gluten-free flour (I use Better Batter)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if using Better Batter)
  • ⅔ cup (80 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ cups (300 grams) granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 extra-large eggs at room temperature, lightly beaten
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, place flour, xanthan gum, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and sugar, and whisk to combine well. Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the dry ingredients and set the bowl aside.
  3. Add the butter, vanilla and eggs to the dry ingredients, mixing after each ingredient until the dough comes together. Add the chips and reserved dry ingredients, and mix until the chips are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  4. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on nonstick rimmed baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes until firm.
  5. Place in the center of the preheated oven and bake until just set, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet until almost entirely cool and solid. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet to cool completely.
Notes
To make cookies-in-a-jar, into a 1 liter (or 1 quart) mason jar, layer in first the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt, then the cocoa powder, followed by the sugar and, finally, the chips. After each layer, tap the jar on the counter to help the ingredients settle into an even, compact layer. On a hang tag, write out the instructions for the recipient to make the cookies
