Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Help

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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?

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

I've never used sourgum flour before. Is it hard to find?

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.

    • I am on constant stuff for my joints, I take Joint support by jarrow for years now, to the point I just take them in my handful of pills twice a day. I also been using collagen supplement powder in my smoothies twice a day. I think my magnesium also helps. I will admit after a recent knee injury I had to take some extra turmeric daily to get the swelling down. Seems to have healed from grapefruit sized to normal and movable in 3 days.
      Some foods, partially if I consume excessive sodium without something to flush me seems to cause a edema issue and joint swelling.
      PS when it gets really cold I have to put on gloves around my house or my fingers all go trigger locky style when it gets too cold. (no heater so during the winter my inside sometimes hits 35-40F ish.)
    • Hey guys...on like week 3 or 4 now I guess.   Hand redness has gotten much worse and so has hand pain. No swelling, just constant redness and pain in finger joints. Knees have very little pain now, and only kick in after LONG periods of inactivity (up to a few hours). The finals arent really helping either in this case. It kinda hurts to even hold a coffee or tea now. And type too. is this still typical this many weeks out of a gluten reaction?    obviouslly a slightly stressed post, but was jw... 
    • Lactose intolerance occurs when you lack the enzyme (called lactase) necessary to properly break down the milk sugar lactose.  That undigested milk sugar cannot enter the body. But it then feeds gut bacteria producing gas, bloating, discomfort/pain.   There are no extra intestinal symptoms (this is an important point). However, gut dysbiosis can ultimately be the result of lactose  intolerance (or any sugar intolerance).  Two things have been demonstrated to increase zonulin production (which opens the tight junctions, resulting in leaky gut): Gluten and Bacteria. SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), which can occur because of lactose intolerance, is essentially a bacterial infection of the small intestines and results in increased intestinal permeability (AKA leaky gut). SIBO can also damage the villi, making your ability to break down foods more compromised, feeding the SIBO/leaky gut cycle.  With leaky gut you now have large proteins entering the bloodstream illicitting an immune response.  This is the cause of the extra intestinal symptoms and other protein intolerances.    Its also worth noting that there is a fairly high prevalence of SIBO in those with celiac disease. See this very informative lecture given by Dr. Fasano on the topic of intestinal permeability: Zonulin, intestinal permeability and immune mediated disorders: facts and fantasies https://cellsciencesystems.com/education/webinars/zonulin-intestinal-permeability-and-immune-mediated-disorders-facts-and-fantasies/  
    • They didnt have powder or liquid so i bought 1000mg of B-12 and 500mg of Magnesium, hope it works! I also have a blood panel scheduled. Thanks everyone! 
    • BrittanyM et al, I just wanted to post this thread that might answer some of your questions about Casein/Dairy JMG had a similar question. It has two livestrong links in it that explains well about the different kinds of Casein proteins. I did not know there "types" of the casein protein but like you I knew I was reacting to dairy. https://www.livestrong.com/article/495564-what-is-sodium-caseinate/ https://www.livestrong.com/article/396733-types-of-casein-protein/ according to livestrong you are out of luck if can't live without cheese if indeed casein is your problem and not lactose. from livestrong " There is no way to make cheese free of casein proteins. Do not eat cheese if you’ve been diagnosed with a milk allergy." but there are lactose free cheeses and they will be labeled so like the gluten free things are. I think the study Knitty Kitty linked studied Cow's Milk . .. it might be you don't react the same to goat's milk or goat cheese since these casein's are different from CM's caseins' according to livestrong. who knew right? I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
