Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

This past Sunday, I was really craving them. So I set out to make a gluten free Lasse cookie recipe. The end result was pretty close to the real thing if Steve & Cara are to be believed.

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 1/4 cups white rice flour

1 cup potato starch

3/4 cup tapioca flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp salt

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup salted sweet cream butter, melted

2 large eggs

24 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

The dough will be a little greasy since the non-wheat flours don’t soak up  butter as well as wheat flour does. Now add in the baking chips. It’ll seem like there are way too many chips, but just go with it.
