Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Help
0

24 posts in this topic

So far my attempts at baking gluten free cookies have not been huge sucesses. My last batch was was edible, but very dry and a previous attempt was a crumbly inedible mess. It doesn't help that I am VERY particular about my cookies I like chewy moist cookies. which makes it a little more difficult. Can anybody give me a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that taste like the recipe from the tollhouse chocolate chip bag?

Have you tried the Tollhouse recipe with gluten-free flour? I found the best gluten-free cookie recipe was my old one, using gluten-free flour.

If you like chewy add some almond flour, it always gives a bit of chew. I prefer superfine white sorghum flour to rice because rice feels gritty. The best flour mix I've found is King Arthur gluten-free flour. I will use half KA and half sorghum/potato. Or now that I've started using almond flour I will use all almond or 1/3 almond, 1/3 KA, 1/3 sorghum/potato.

You may add an extra egg or reduce the fat a bit in your recipe, simple changes like that, but the basic recipe can probably stay the same.

Also, try using baking soda for rise instead of baking powder.

I don't use xanthan or other gums in my cookies. They rise just fine without it.

This is the best recipe ever - gluten free or not and I have made MANY recipes. These cookies are chewy and fabulous. The raw dough is delicious. (I hate to admit that because there are raw eggs in it...) The recipe yields me twice as much as it says but I make mine the regular size, not gigantic. You cannot tell these are gluten free whatsoever. I get many, many requests for them from non celiacs as well.

Yes! And that is just part of the goodness. I'm picky about baking and these are a winner for me. I've done many test recipes but this is the one I always make when I'm not testing because they really are that good.

I've developed a love for sorghum in place of rice flours. It has a nice "wheat" taste, I think. I've started using almond flour lately and really enjoy the two together. I'm not surprised to see them in combination in a recipe you think is so good.

This is the recipe I invented. They hold together well even if you don't use xanthan gum and they stay soft and chewy.

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup soy flour

1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoons hot water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Mix together the flours, butter, sugar, baking soda, vanilla, salt, water, chocolate chips and 1 egg. The dough should be non-sticky and form a tight, firm ball. If the dough is a little crumbly add the extra egg white. Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased pans.

Bake for about 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

Me, too. Sorghum is one of my favourites - I use it a lot in blends and so on. Almond is another favourite. Heck - I have lots of favourites, don't I? But seriously sorghum is wonderful. Glad you like it, too. :)

I use the recipe from Elana's Pantry - I love it. I do make a couple substitutions ... coconut oil (liquified) for the grapeseed and honey for the agave.

I also use the one from Elana's Pantry using canola for the grapeseed and also the honey for agave. I served them for my daughter's birthday party and even the gluten eaters went back for seconds and thirds.

Here are all my secrets for chocolate chip cookies.

I use the Tollhouse recipe, but always use Butter flavored Crisco instead of butter/margarine.

I add about 1/4 cup extra flour so they don't spread too much.

For my flour I use about 1/2 Sorghum and 1/2 Featherlight mix (white rice, tapioca, corn starch).

I also throw in 2 heaping tablespoons of ground flaxseed.

I also through in a tablespoon of dry milk powder and maybe 1/4 tsp of unflavored gelatin.

I use extra chocolate chips, and roughly this ratio: 1/2 milk choc, 1/4 semi-sweet, 1/4 white choc

I refrigerate the dough.

I bake them on a preheated baking stone.

I use a round tablespoon size scoop (Pampered Chef) sprayed with Pam to make them all the same size.

I only bake them 8-10 minutes. Take them out when they still look a little doughy. They will continue to bake on the stone even out of the oven. Let them cool completely and then remove with a flat stainless steel spatula.

Sounds like a lot of trouble? Maybe, but now I can do it in my sleep. Believe me, these do not last long around our house, and I take to any kind of potluck/social gathering and they don't last there, either.

Oh yeah, last thing is that I freeze the extra dough. Move from freezer to fridge for about an hour when you want to bake a fresh batch. Can refreeze what's left.

Another tip I've found baking gluten-free, especially with nut flours - always bake on parchment paper and let the cookies thoroughly cool before moving them (I just slide the paper off the sheet onto the counter).

Nut flour cookies are a crumbly mess when hot but firm up beautifully when cool.

Good point. I use silpat, too. Another good tip is to stack 2 cookie sheets on top of one another if your oven has hot spots or a tendency to burn. The extra layer prevents burning.

Awesome! I like the flavour and texture of sorghum. Have you tried millet, chestnut or teff?

We have been very happy with the Pamela's baking mix following the recie on the bag.

But OMG I order from LizLovely online and her really expensive cookies (gluten free variety and all vegan) are totally awesome! She just came out with a gluten free option for the Lovely Ohs. (Like a chocolate covered oreo.)

I just ordered! There is a promotional code for 15%off new product orders ~ OMGMARCH2012 valid right now.

Or use the loyalty discount LIZROCKS for 5% discount.

Honestly don't flag me, because I don't profit from the suggestion. I just love the product! www.lizlovely.com

Bob's Red Mill seems to be the most-seen brand around me; however, I buy Authentic Foods superfine white sorghum. From reading, the fine grind makes a big difference in some recipes. You can order both online.

I just made some cookies from scratch, used the Tollhouse recipe and the gluten free flour mixture I bought from a local Amish Store. Taste great but the cookies do not "rise" at all and simply melt flat while in the oven. Any ideas on what I could add to give it some form?

Was there any xanthan gum in the flour mix or recipe?

Some people use xanthan gum for rise but I add more leavening and readuce fats. The toll house recipe uses 2 sticks of butter and I find butter is one of the spreadiest fats to use gluten-free - I would definitely reduce it by 1/4 to 1/3. I'd probably use half shortening, half butter, also. I'd add more baking soda, too, or add some baking powder. You have 2 eggs in there, and that is probably sufficient moisture to make up for the difference in the butter.

Also, if you are using a nut or coconut flour mix you need to completely revamp the recipe or try one developed specifically for those flours.

I was a chocolate chip cookie lover before going gluten free. My favorite recipe is from Land-o-Lakes. Go online and look for Chewy Chocolate chip cookies(gluten-free). To me they are as close to my pre-gluten free cookies as they can be.

    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure how much fat I'm having, I will check. That could be contributing. Yup I do know about the link between Type 1 and celiac. But when it was first discovered my blood sugar was high, my insulin was tested and it was high...actually it was double the normal amount. C-peptide was tested too and I don't remember exactly but I think it was slightly high? If I had Type 1 or LADA, wouldn't my insulin be lower? It is strange though how I have none of the risk factors for insulin resistance and/or type 2... And in fact I had been on a super healthy whole food, "anti-candida" diet for several years before my blood sugar suddenly went really wacko!

    • Chipolte New Marinade
      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
