This is the big treat for the 3 dads we have at our house today: my husband, his dad, and my dad. We love you guys! Thanks for all you do! We are a pretty lucky family!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup organic palm oil shortening
1 1/4 cup brown sugar or sucanate
1 Tbsp GF vanilla
2 1/4 cups bean flour blend
1 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup GFCF chocolate chips
1 cup chopped toasted walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix bean flour blend, xanthan, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl and whisk well.
Cream together palm oil and brown sugar in another bowl. Add eggs one at a time, blending well after each addition. Add vanilla; beat until smooth.
Add dry ingredients to mixing bowl; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool on pan for a couple of minutes before removing cookies from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 30 cookies.
If you would like to make giant cookies like in the photo, put dough in a 1/4 cup measure. Level dough. Put on pan and slightly flatten. I put 4 on a baking sheet and bake for 15 min on convection.
