Ghirardelli Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2014

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Ghirardelli Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are delightful. Well, I’ve finally succeeded in baking my first gluten free cookie! I’ve made so many gluten free casseroles, pastas, main dishes, and soup recipes, but I’ve been a chicken when it comes to baking gluten free.

I’ve done pancakes, breads, and a few cobbler recipes, but this is my first try at cookies. Both John and I loved these delicious, crispy chocolate chip cookies. We used Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips, and Pamela’s Gluten Free Pancake and Baking Mix instead of the unbleached all-purpose flour I usually use. The results were fantastic. (Any gluten free all purpose flour will work here).

I wasn’t originally planning on making gluten free cookies this Christmas. But John and I had lunch with a friend and co-worker a couple of months ago. He wanted to talk to me a little about my blog because he knew I had posted quite a few gluten free recipes. He, and several family members, have issues with gluten intolerance, and he wanted to know what products I used in baking and cooking.

Generally, I use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all-purpose flour to replace regular all-purpose flour when making sauces and dredging meats for main dishes, side dishes and casseroles. I use Pamela’s Gluten Free Pancake and Baking Mix in place of flour for pancakes, breads, cakes, and now cookies. I love this baking mix. It is an incredibly wonderful alternative for those who have Celiac Disease or difficulties with gluten to any degree.

Ghirardelli Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies turned out great. Quite frankly, most palates would never even notice this recipe was made with gluten free flour. It’s really excellent. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that I used Ghirardelli chocolate chips instead of a cheap brand. Ghirardelli Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy and gooey on the inside. I made half of the cookies with the tops studded with extra chocolate chips and the others without. We actually found that the cookies baked better and did not flatten out quite as much when we didn’t add extra chocolate chips on top of the cookies.

If you’re looking for a lovely Christmas cookie to make for your gluten intolerant friends, I highly recommend Ghirardelli Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. Your friends and family will be so appreciative that you considered their needs in this way. And, to our friend, and John’s co-worker, Chris, this cookie recipe is for you!

An update: This was one of everyone’s favorite cookies in our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. Even those who are not gluten intolerant loved this recipe!
