The Best Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar *no white sugar
1 egg, large
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
1/4 tsp + a dash more Xanthan Gum
1 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (1-1/2 cup chips for chocolate lovers)
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts * I used pecans
Preheat oven to 350°. Soften butter, add sugar, egg and vanilla, then beat together. Add Xanthan gum to Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and whisk together, then add to wet ingredients, chocolate chips (and nuts) mix thoroughly. Place tablespoon sized scoops of dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until edges start to brown. Let cookies cool slightly and use a spatula to remove from cookie sheet.
Variation: Try white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, or butterscotch chips. Try pecans or macadamia nuts.
Enjoy with coffee or milk!
