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.
CREAM TOGETHER FOR 5 MINUTES:
1 1/2 cups butter flavored shortening
2 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
2 T. vanilla
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!
