Alton Brown

Recommended Posts

Tonights episode of Alton Brown was called Sub Standards and featured substitution recipes and ideas if you didn't have bread flour or buttermilk what you could use instead but....

he also covered if you had health reasons for not using foods, what you could do instead. So he talked all about gluten and what it is and then he re-did a past show's chewy cookie recipe and made it gluten-free!

As far as I know this was a new episode, but if it is old news sorry for a post about this. But Alton Brown's recipe for Chocolate Chip gluten-free cookies is as follows (I haven't tried it yet, since I just saw the episode 2 hours ago, but I always love his stuff, so these couldn't be bad :) )

Alton Brown's gluten-free Cookies

8 ounces unsalted butter

11 ounces brown rice flour, approximately 2 cups

1 1/4 ounces cornstarch, approximately 1/4 cup

1/2-ounce tapioca flour, approximately 2 tablespoons

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 ounces sugar, approximately 1/4 cup

10 ounces light brown sugar, approximately 1 1/4 cups

1 whole egg

1 egg yolk

2 tablespoons whole milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat. Once melted, pour into the bowl of a stand mixer.

In a medium bowl, sift together the rice flour, cornstarch, tapioca flour, xantham gum, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

Add both of the sugars to the bowl with the butter and using the paddle attachment, cream together on medium speed for 1 minute. Add the whole egg, egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Chill the dough in the refrigerator until firm, approximately 1 hour. Shape the dough into 2-ounce balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet. Bake for 14 minutes, rotating the pans after 7 minutes for even baking. Remove from the oven and cool the cookies on the pans for 2 minutes. Move the cookies to a wire rack and cool completely. Store cooked cookies in an airtight container.

Enjoy!

Thank you so much for posting this! I LOVE Good Eats!

Very interesting that he uses egg AND egg YOLK! I bet he has some kind of sophisticated explanation about fat globules and protein, or something like that! I think I'll try that combination in my next cookie recipe!

I am a huge AB fan, and yesterday was a really rough day for me... I have been feeling really miserable and unable to get any doctors to call me back about pain management that I was seriously considering eating a pizza. (I know, I know, it was not sane or rational, but I was really hurting and at the time it just felt like if I am going to be in pain anyway, may as well enjoy part of it.)

Seeing Alton whipping up a batch of gluten free cookies, it warmed my heart and kept me to my cucumber salad for dinner. I am really excited to try them out!

My husband called me into the room to see what Alton was doing.

I was thrilled to see media buzz about gluten-free cooking! We love goods eats! We watch it a few times a week.

I spend so much time in the trenches trying to take good care of my celiac kids. (As all of you do.)

Our cookie recipe is very good, but I will happily try Alton's.

I appreciate the media buzz. I appreciate the awareness that is created by the buzz.

Thank you Alton!

My wife just burst into my office. She made me switch away from the Daily Show to a cooking show, but it was neat to see gluten-free on the TV!
