Oh man, is there anything better than a chocolate chip cookie? You know the kind, the slightly chewy, not-too-sweet, soft and gooey cookies. It took me a long time, a lot of trial and error to perfect this chocolate chip cookie recipe. You'll notice that it's missing some staples of normal cookies - there's no baking soda and there's no milk.

I personally don't like the taste of baking soda in gluten-free baked goods. It tastes too obvious to me. Plus, baking soda makes cookies spread, and without the elastic gluten protein keeping things tight, gluten-free cookies tend to run away if given the chance. If you did want to keep the baking soda in, just add a tablespoon along with the flour.

And if you want to jazz up your cookies with walnuts, candy-coated chocolates or anything you'd like, just add them at the stage when you add the chocolate chips. Another thing about this recipe, I've included instructions for chilling the dough. It really is essential if you want cookies that are thick and have some texture to them. Without chilling the dough, the cookies spread, too. Basically, if you've not noticed, spreading is a real problem with gluten-free cookies!

Resist the urge to gobble up the uncooked cookie dough as this recipe does contain eggs, but how delicious does the cookie dough look?!

Oh and these cookies (like all my recipes on Anyonita Nibbles Gluten-Free) is also a big hit with people who don't have to follow a gluten-free diet. I know it's a cookie and what child doesn't love a cookie? But my gluten-eating three year old daughter approves of these cookies!
