Chocolate Chip Cookies

This will make 6 dozen.  I like to cook up part, put some in the fridge for my husband (he LOVES cookie dough!), and freeze some to have on hand.

1 1/2 cups butter flavored shortening
2 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
2 T. vanilla
2 eggs
4 T. milk (can use rice, almond, or soy)

3 1/2-4 cups W/GF Flour Mix
2 1/8 t. xanthan gum
1 1/2 t. baking soda
3 cups chocolate chips

Combine shortening, brown sugar, vanilla and milk.  Beat at medium speed until creamy, and add eggs in one at a time.  Blend together well.  Sift in flour, xanthan gum, soda, and salt.  Add chocolate chips.  Bake at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes depending on size of cookie.  Let the cookies cool for several minutes before removing them from the pan. 

I like to scoop my dough with a 1" ice cream scoop to make sure the cookies are all the same size. (That's my perfectionism taking over.) I also recommend a baking stone.  I use the Pampered Chef Stoneware Rectangle Stone.

*Note*  The cookies will taste much better if your husband cleans up after you!
