I have been neglecting you, month of May. For this I apologise.I am SO HAPPY. I have found a recipe for perfect, and I mean perfect, Chocolate Chip Cookies. Now... I mean perfect as in, perfect for me. If you are one of those people that I know that can't have dairy, ie butter, than this is not the perfect recipe for you. If you are, like me, in need of Gluten Free foods, than this is for you!
Seriously, though, they are awesome. They even look perfect.
How Pretty Are They????
Anyways, the recipe is as follows:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/3 cup Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour (Yes, it does exist.... I found it at a health food store.)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (I used crushed almonds, but you can put in your favourite nuts. How did I crush the almonds? Well, I took whole raw almonds, put them into a doubled-up plastic sandwich baggie, then schmucked them with a hammer. It worked pretty good!)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egss & vanilla until light & fluffy. Combine flour, baking soda & salt. Add to creamed mixture, beating on low until blended.
Scoop up tablespoonfuls of dough, and plop them on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes on sheets, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. If you don't have a cookie cooling rack, then.. I can't help you.
They are REALLY good. Tyler says they are the best cookies I've ever made him, and I've made some pretty darn good ones.
