How To Make Soft Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies – Step by Step

  1. Preheat the Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter over low heat and bring to room temperature
  3. Whisk Flour, Baking Soda, and Salt in a medium mixing bowl
  4. Mix melted, cooled butter and sugar in a separate large bowl until smooth.
  5. Add whisked eggs and vanilla extract to the butter mixture.
  6. Add dry ingredients (flour mixture) to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  7. Let raw cookie dough rest for 10 minutes. The dough will be sticky and soft.
  8. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Use an oiled spring-loaded cookie scoop to portion the dough balls about 2 inches apart. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 11-13 minutes.
  9. Do not overbake, as the cookies will continue to set as they cool. Transfer to a cooling rack after 5 minutes.
  10. Once the baked cookies are completely cool, store them in an airtight container on the counter. Cookies taste best freshly baked.
  11. The recipe makes 24 small cookies or 12 large cookies.


Tips

  • For best results remove cookies between 11-13 minutes. They will still be very light in color and golden on the bottom. These are soft cookies and will dry out if you overbake them.
  • If it’s extremely warm, you can keep the cookie dough balls in the refrigerator to chill while the first batch bakes.

Storage

Store in an airtight container on the counter. Cookies are best eaten within one day for maximum freshness.

Additions and Substitutions

You can substitute white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips, or even vegan chocolate chips in this recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions for Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Can I freeze chocolate chip cookie dough?

You can freeze gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough balls. Place them on a sheet pan and flash-freeze for one hour before transferring the dough balls to a plastic bag or airtight freezer-safe container. You can freeze cookie dough balls for up to three months. I recommend labeling and dating the frozen cookies. When ready to bake, place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and turn your oven to 350 degrees. Place the sheet pan in the oven with frozen dough balls spaced 2 inches apart. It might take a few extra minutes for cookies to bake. You can individually wrap frozen cookies. This way, you can always have a warm cookie!
