Recipe: Gluten Free Cherry Chip Cookies


Cherry Chip Cookies! 🙂

For my friend on the Zaar. You know who you are. 🙂 This is based on the Tollhouse Cookie recipe.

1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup sorghum flour, plus 2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teasponn baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/8 cup granulated sugar
3/8 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. cherry flavoring
1 tsp. almond extract
10 drops red food coloring
1 egg
1/2 cup cherry chips
1/2 cup pecans

1. Preheat your oven to 375 F.

2. Combine butter, sugars, cherry, almond and food coloring in the workbowl of a heavy duty mixer. Add egg and mix until uniform.

3. Add flours, baking soda, salt and xanthan gum. Mix on low to integrate flour (tapioca is light and will fly out of the bowl if you don’t do this gently).

4. Add cherry chips and nuts (optional), stir to combine.

5. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Let rest for about 10 minutes and then move to a cooling rack.
