Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
Please come say “hi” over in my online community, Silvana’s Kitchen. I’d love to hear how you’re doing. Thank you, as always, for reading and sharing!
For ingredient substitutions, please see the detailed chart at Gluten-Free 101.
Let’s get baking,
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons Silvana’s Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup non-hydrogenated shortening, at room temperature
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup dairy-free semisweet chocolate chips or chocolate chunks, chopped
1. Preheat the over to 375º and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking power, baking soda and salt.
2. In a large bowl and using a fork, beat together the shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually mix in the flour mixture; stir in the chopped chocolate.
3. Using a 1½-inch scoop or a rounded tablespoon, drop the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Baking until golden at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer to a brown paper bag-lined surface or a wire rack to cool.
