Chocolate Chip Cookies - Gluten Free and DFI friendly

Since I found out about having DFI, I have been wondering how will this work with baking.   I love to bake and my husband loves it when I bake.   I have a favorite baking cookbook, The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook.  Seeing as their recipes are not gluten free or totally DFI friendly, I decided to experiment and see what I can do.   I started with something simple and well known in flavor to all .... Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I made a batch and have to say they taste pretty good.    A few things I learned, they take a little longer to cook and they don't look as brown as the nestle version.

So here is the recipe with my adaptations.

Magnolia Chocolate Chip Cookies - made Gluten Free and DFI Friendly

1 1/2 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mixed (I used Bob's)
1/4 tsp Xanthum Gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 sticks of unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Raw sugar (replaces the light brown sugar since this is not a DFI friendly sugar)
1 large egg room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I plan to be a little more generous)

Preheat the oven at 350
In a bowl combine the flour, xanthum gum, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
In a mixture cream the butter and sugar together.  Takes about 5 minutes.  Add the egg and vanilla and mix well on a higher speed (adds more air into liquid).  Add the dry mixture and mix well.  Add the chocolate chips.    Drop the batter on a parchment paper lined pan.  Bake for 10 to 15 minutes depending on your over.

Enjoy with milk.
