This gluten free cookie recipe creates a soft chewy chocolate chip cookie that is better than any cookie with gluten out there.

My daughter wanted some M&M’s in the cookies and as M&M’s are gluten free they worked for this recipe.

This recipe is based off of the classic Toll House cookie recipe, but obviously has been modified for gluten free baking.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and place your cookie sheet in the oven to warm up while you prepare your cookies.

Cream together your margarine, brown sugar and granulated sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla and mix together.

After adding the eggs your mixture will look like this.

In a separate bowl, combine your flour, salt, baking soda and xanthan gum.

Add the flour mixture to your wet ingredients. I find it easier to switch to a wooden spoon at this point to mix it all up as the batter starts to get thick.

Your gluten free cookie dough is just about done. Now it is time to add your chocolate chips.

* At Christmas time I make this with white chocolate chips, pistachios and dried cherries and we call them Christmas Chip cookies.

Add your chocolate into your dough and blend together to they are evenly distributed.

Scoop out your dough using a small scoop or two spoons to make evenly sized cookies.

Bake about 10 minutes and you will have a yummy gluten free chocolate chip cookie.
