Xanthan gum is necessary in gluten free baking to act as a kind of binder--without it, a lot of things like cakes, breads, and cookies would crumble and have a brick-like texture.
I use Gluten Free Pantry brand--I have found it at Whole Foods. Also widely available at healthfood stores and Whole Food/Wild Oats is Bob's Red Mill xanthan gum.
It is expensive, but since you only use a small amount, the package tends to last a long time
