The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, has the title of this post created a puddle of drool on your keyboard or iPad? Yes, they are that yummy! So, I got this recipe from hubby’s Grandma B. She is a beautiful woman who honestly makes the BEST chocolate chip cookies in the world. She shared this recipe with my at my bridal shower. Yes, everyone had to bring a recipe so I could add it to my collection. Anyway, hubby remembers these cookies always readily available at Grandma B’s house whenever he would go for a visit. And, since we started dating (many, many years ago!) and he started bringing me around, I also remember her always having these cookies in the freezer. And, after we were married, I knew that if I needed to bribe hubby … this cookie was the cookie to do it. In fact, it was so good that I would honestly have a hard time getting any dough to make it to the cookie sheet. Anyway, after I went GF this recipe got pushed to the  back of the drawer. I was sad (and honestly, a little angry at the thought of missing this cookie!). These cookies were so good that I didn’t think I could ever recreate them to be GF, dairy free and soy free. I just couldn’t bring myself to try and make them GF for fear of really, really messing it up. Well, it wasn’t until recently that I stumbled upon the old recipe that I decided to give it a whirl.  And, I must say that I nailed it. They are sooooo good that I still have a problem getting the dough to hit the cookie sheet! Even hubby (who has not converted to GF) was so excited the first time that I made these GF. I got him to taste them and he was so happy I had made these cookies for him … literally … it had been years since I had…. and then I informed him “THEY’RE GLUTEN FREE”!  He was so shocked and said … “Wow … they taste incredible!” Seriously, my kids can’t stop at one and neither can I! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family has! Thank you Grandma B for sharing this recipe with me (and with a few major and minor tweaks … it’s GF!) Enjoy!

DSC_0323Next, in a separate bowl, toss 1 tsp corn starch with the chocolate chips. Fold chocolate chips into the dough using a spatula. Once the chocolate chips have been folded in, roll dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Remember to not make your balls too big as the cookies do spread while baking. Lightly press down the cookie dough balls with the palm of your hand.

DSC_0325Bake for about 10 minutes at 350F. Do not over bake! Remove from the oven and let cool on the cookie sheet about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once they are cooled, store them in an airtight container on the counter for a few days (if they last that long!) or freeze. Enjoy!
