gluten free toll house (chocolate chip) cookies

I have been craving chocolate chip cookies.  The funny thing about that, is when I crave something it usually only takes three weeks for me to get around to making them.  My Beloved has asked for gluten free again so I decided to modify my go to recipe.  My go to recipe for chocolate chip cookies is the cookie recipe on the back of the Nestle chocolate chip bag:  Toll House cookies.  Not that we should really eat those chocolate chips because they are not guaranteed to be gluten free, but it is the go to recipe.

So I fussed with the recipe.  These are the cookies that I was thinking about.  The "mistake" batch are the one that my family is requesting to be made again.  I have actually had multiple requests from my Beloved and the Tall Short Person.  The Tall Short Person says the Pixie really likes these.  He does ninja dances when she eats these in her tummy.  Both versions are very good but I will post the "mistake" batch tomorrow.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 cup plus 2 tablespoon almond flour

1 cup plus 2 tablespoon sorghum flour

1 cup plus 2 tablespoon teff flour

1 cup plus 2 tablespoon arrowroot flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 to 1 cup chocolate chips (Enjoy Life are gluten free, this is dependent on your taste.  My family likes the 2/3 cups)

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together.  Add the vanilla and eggs.  Mix well.  Add the flours, baking soda, and salt.  Mix until incorporated.  Mix in the chocolate chips.  At this point, if you can wait, refrigerate overnight or up to 36 hours.  The flavors will meld better that way.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare cookie sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.  Drop the dough by teaspoon on to the prepared cookie sheet.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.

These are a gluten free, whole grain cookie that does not taste good for you in any way, shape, or form.  But between the sorghum, almond, teff, and egg, the protein content is high and the whole grains give much fiber.

Eat cookies for breakfast (hopeful look).
