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.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
