Good Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix Or Recipe?

Recommended Posts

Bob's Red Mill mix is gross because all I can taste is ground beans. What's a good mix or recipe? Should I have bought the Pamela's mix?

I use the recipe from eatingglutenfree.com Called: soft batch(chocolate chip). The sugar cookie recipe is good too. Both take pudding mix.

Alton Brown took on gluten-free Choc.Chip Cookies a while ago. We love these:

gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Chewy Gluten Free Recipe courtesy Alton Brown, 2007

Show: Good Eats

Episode: Sub Standards

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, xanthan 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.

I made the recipe from the book gluten free baking classics, and thought it was the best chocolate chip cookie i'd ever had. You do have to make sure to use extra-fine rice flour.


Cara - 42, mom to dd 15, ds 12, ds 4

Off gluten and dairy (and tapioca ;-( ) since 11/07

A.L.C.A.T. test showed over 50 sensitive foods

Regular allergy testing reacted to every inhalant and all but 6 foods.

Slowly adding in foods, started w 19 and now have 25

I've used the gluten-free recipe from the Land O Lakes butter website (google Land O Lakes chocolate chip cookie recipe). Both my young kids love it! Of course, I have to use an egg, butter and rice substitute due to additional food allergies. The bright side of this is that they can eat the raw cookie dough-- which tastes great, too. However, I'm sure it's extra yummy with all the real goodies. Their recipe has a great flour mix--a combo of rice (I use sorguhm instead), tapioca, potato starch and xantham gum. I've done a lot of recipe searches and this seems to be the best one I've found.

The recipe on the back of the Pamelas Ultimate bag are the easiest and best, IMO. I get foolproof results with it, but I always refrigerate the dough over night before baking. My NGF parents had some at our place last night, and my Dad said they were the best cookies he had ever had.

Hi, I agree, I hate the taste of bean flour!

After searching for almost 3 years for a great chocolate chip cookie recipe, I finally found one :D Just use Bette H gluten-free featherlight flour mix [i make it up myself] and then follow the tollhouse cookie recipe...they are just as good if not better than Real chocolate chip cookies. Everyone loves them and has no idea they are gluten-free.
