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.

Me too :) I used Carol Fenster's New Sorghum Blend in my latest banana nut bread and it was a HUGE hit.

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?

I haven't bothered with chocolate chip cookies from scratch. I use the Betty Crocker gluten-free mix! :lol:

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

Yes, where I live it is easy to find (Alberta).

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.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
