Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies - Delicious!

I really am loving my Gluten  Free on a Shoestring cook book for baking.  Everything is turning out pretty well  and I strongly recommend you buy a copy.

This recipe is for GF Chocolate Chip Cookies:
8 T butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 extra-large eggs
1 T pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose gluten-free flour
1 1/4 t. xantham gum (if your all-purpose flour didn't have it)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 t. baking soda
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

I made a half recipe to see how it worked.

Butter alternative and sugar, blend until fluffy

Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla

Add the flour, xantham, salt, & baking soda

Dark chocolate chips (non-dairy) tossed with a Tablespoon of the dry ingredients

Mix in the chocolate chips

Drop dough 2 " apart on cookie sheets, refrigerate for 15 minutes

Baked for 9 minutes.  Watch for the edges to brown slightly, not the tops.

Another load on the cookie sheet, but I didn't refrigerate these ones

These also cooked up nicely.  They are quite soft when you remove them from the oven, but ten minutes on the cooling rack hardens them up to an appropriate cookie textures.

They are really tasty and my GF/DF daughter just loves them, too.
