In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
cup butter (two sticks)
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (Cooks vanilla powder is great)
1-½ cup brown rice flour
½ cup potato flour (NOT potato starch flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 pkg. milk or semisweet chocolate chips
Cream butter (can use dairy-free margarine or Crisco if necessary), sugars, eggs and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients, then chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto un-greased cookie sheet. Flatten very slightly with fork. Bake between 350-375 degrees for 12 minutes or so (temperature and time vary by individual oven -- if yours bakes hot, use the lower temperature). Remove from oven when lightly browned (they over-brown very quickly). Remove to cooling rack after a few minutes.
Also good with chopped nuts and/or shredded coconut.
