Recipe Tips & Notes
Chocolate chip cookies are commonly a drop cookie that features chocolate chips or chocolate morsels as its distinguishing ingredient. Chocolate chip cookies originated in the United States around 1938, when Ruth Graves Wakefield chopped up a Nestlé semi-sweet chocolate bar and added the chopped chocolate to a cookie recipe.
How do you make gluten free cookies softer and chewier?
It is recommended to bake gluten free cookie dough at a higher temperature for less amount of time. Find the sweet spot of your oven. Occasionally we will adjust our brown sugar and white sugar ratios, striving to stay close to a 1-1 ratio when increasing.
One of the easier ways to have a soft and chewier gluten free cookies is to not let it cook all the way through & letting them sit on the baking sheet longer before transferring them to a cooling rack.
