I make this recipe all the time and it's fabulous! My non GF friends and GF ones ask me to make them some cookies all the time. My small modifications are 3 cups of chips and to refrigerator the dough before using. Refrigeration makes the cookies thicker and they look more like store bought ones. It eliminates thins edge cookies. The extra chips just make the cookies taste better! Afterall CC cookies are just a delivery system for chocolate anyway. Lol.

Finally a really good gluten free chocolate chip cookie! I made them twice in one week, it had been so long since I'd had a good chocolate chip cookie, and I had tried several other recipes. Now I am not embarrassed to take share my cookies with others--I don't even have to apologize to anyone about the gritty, starchy taste. THANK YOU!! Why has every other recipe I have tried made it seem so hard?

Thank you so much, Land O Lakes. These taste just like the wheat ones I miss. I used Namaste flour. Amazing!

Hi Patricia - we haven't tested this recipe with other blends, so it is hard to say. Just to be on the safe side, we would say to add the extra gum. Happy baking!

If using a GF baking or all purpose flour that already has gum in it is it necessary to add whats called for in the recipe?

Delicious! Made at high altitude(Denver, CO) and didn't even have to change the recipe! Cookies came out perfect :) I used a Gluten-Free Baking Flour for the flour blend(and it already has xanthan gum in it, so I didn't need to add any extra.) Thanks!

The flavor and texture was good however, it had "gritty" feel to it. I used the suggested flour by Land of Lakes. Anyone else?

I just took these out of the oven, and am thrilled with the results. Instead of using the chocolate chips I made them into macadamia white chocolate chip cookies that I have not had in years, slightly crisp on the outside and a tad chewy in the center, to me a perfect cookie. I gave one to my husband ( who does not have to be gluten free) and his eyes lit up and he said wow these are really good, and then he requested me to make some more to bring to work and share. I will be serving them for thanksgiving as well. Thank you so much I have finally found my go to gluten free cookie recipe. This ones a keeper.

Wow! So easy to make, and they turned out perfect just as written. But... because I am always working on new ideas, I had to turn this one into an additional recipe, which I call "Mocha Crinkles". My husband brought home some mini chocolate chips - the tiniest I have ever seen. I knew that if I used them in place of the more chunky chips, I would be disappointed. So the next batch I made by reserving 2 T. butter and 1/2 C of the mini chips, and adding 2T. instant coffee crystals. I melted these ingredients together in the microwave. Then, after making the batter from the original recipe, I mixed the warm butter/ chocolate/ coffee mixture into the batter until it was fully incorporated. And there you have it.... Mocha Crinkles! Yum!!

Hi Lisa, sorry to hear you had issues with this recipe. Many factors can affect how your cookies turn out, including elevation. Other factors can include how soft your butter was while baking, if your pan was hot when placing the dough on it, and the ratio of butter to flour. The gluten-free flour blend can also cause this if it isn't measured quite correctly. If you try again, check to make sure these factors are addressed, and let us know how it turns out for you. Happy baking!

Is there a modification for high elevation for this recipe? Every time I try it the cookies turn out very flat.
