This is a terrific recipe! I made these with Tapicoa flour, since I can't have potato. I put in extra flour until the dough was thick enough.

I also used Crisco. The first batch turned out great. The next batch tasted good, but they were very flat.

I'm not a careful measure-er, and I suspect the amount of shortening or butter is to blame. Those of you with flat cookies might try using less butter.

Slick pans also make cookies flatter. Even if the cookie sheet isn't non-stick, it may still have a very slick surface. I'm going to try making a batch on wax paper to see how that works.

Don't use wax paper because the wax melts off of it and ruins both your cookies and your cookie sheet. Use parchment paper instead, it's coated in silicone which does not melt.


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

Thanks for the tip. I won't use wax paper. However, is parchment paper a "non-stick" type surface? I'm trying to keep the cookies from spreading.

Yes. I've always used it for baking cookies with excellent results. It's also really handy because you can "stage" your batches and not have to wait for your cookies to come out and cool before setting up another pan.

What egg sub did you use? I tried te geltin one this time, and I think thats why mine are a bit gummy.

Gelatin doesn't work well in cookies. I know your wife will cringe at the thought, but try some ground flax meal (about 1 Tbs.) mixed in 3 Tbs. water, mixed in with the sugar. Then also use the egg replacer. This will make them stick together and puff that little bit. I also usually use 1/3 C of almond butter, but I think you try to stay nut free.

Egg replacer? You mean that Ener-G stuff? Never bought it...

You can use Ener-G or another replacement that has baking powder in it. The point is that for cookies you need both qualities of eggs - the stick-together factor and the puffing-up factor.

AH, I often use, 1 1/2 T. water, 1 1/2 T. oil, 1 tsp. baking powder per egg. The geletion was an expiremtn. Thats what I did with the last batch I mande (used GFP mix that time) and they came out much better, just a bit dry.

I tried this recipe last night and mine came out flat also! I was very disappointed, but we ate the dough. That's the best part.

If you can do it, try using shortening, and reduce the amount to 1/2 cup. I've made this recipe 4 times now, and this last batch was the best yet. In addition to reducing the shortening, I also tweaked the sugars--I use 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 4 tbsp. of sugar. I use Ener-g Potato Starch and more chocolate chips than the recipe calls for. I bake for exactly 8 minutes. Delicious :D

Dude, mine came out completely flat too!! It was like the potato starch disappeared and the butter and sugar just carmelized!

I'm wondering if there's a difference between gas and electric stoves...

Oh no! I feel kind of bad telling everyone how much I like these--I've made them 4 times now, and have had no problems. I have a gas oven, if that makes any difference.

Well I USED Patti's tweaking of the Toll House recipe and ADDED a few tweaks of my own. I have an electric oven. I added one extra level Tbl of the potato starch and an extra tiny pinch of the baking soda. I also baked mine for 9 minutes, but that is in MY oven. I would try 8 mins first and then decide. I also found that I could only use one cookie sheet at a time centered in the oven. When I did two, some of the outer cookies carmelized and flattened. I also use parchment paper, which I reuse for the next batch. I use a melon baller for uniform cookies. These turned out FANTASTIC and looked an tasted like regular Choc. Chip cookies. They even raised. One of my gluten eaters said they looked and tasted like the regular ones and sure did beat my other 2 batches LOL. Hope this helps anyone with an electric oven. Also don't forget to use Patti's advice to let cool on the cookie sheat before moving to a cooling rack. I just slide the parchment paper and cookies off and start the next batch. Oh, I forgot to mention, that I let the cookie sheet cool before I put more on as that way they don't start to melt. I use two cookie sheets and one has time to cool before I use it.

Tropical Source gluten and dairy free chips are the best.

They are semi-sweet, and sweetened with cane juice.

They care about the cocoa farmers they work with, and are dedicated to fair labor practices.

They make lovely chocolate bars too, and are found at your local co-op or health food store.

Are these soy free. It seems chips have soy lecithin in them. I've found enjoy life chips recently and they don't have soy lecithin in them.

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
