The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever!!!

Chocolate Chip cookies are practically sacred in our family. Our Great Aunt E set the standard by which at least 4 generations of cookie bakers were to be judged. Great Aunt E was my Gramma Sam’s sister.

Going to visit Aunt E and Unk was always a treat, their house was always decorated in a warm and inviting country style and there were always bags of chocolate chip cookies stashed in the freezer. Some to eat while we were there visiting and always some to take home.butter

Although I was never able to replicate Aunt E’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, I have created the next best thing.butter n coconut oil

(I say next best thing but that is a lie. These are Gluten free and although they are pretty awesome if I do say so myself, they are not the cookies I grew up with. Have I told you Gluten Free sucks?!?!?!?  If I haven’t let me tell you now:


Yes I feel better being gluten free, whatever. I want real pizza and the cookies I grew up with!!!!!! Grrrrr!!!!!) Alright, I am done whiningadd brown sugar


I have spent the last 4 years trying to find the best combination of Gluten Free flours and I think I have finally found it! You’ve gotta try these:
