Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
Both the shaped dough and the cookies freeze beautifully. I almost always have a batch of cookies and a batch of cookie dough disks in my freezer.
You can bake them from frozen, but if you do, I recommend pressing the raw cookie dough disks flatter, as they will spread less if baked from frozen. You should also increase the baking time by a minute or two.
These gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are made with all the good stuff: butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. However, you may be able to make them using a sugar substitute. You can substitute coconut sugar for brown sugar.
If your gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are flat, it could be because the butter was melted or just too greasy when you made the cookie dough, or it could be because your cookie dough was too warm. Remember that your cookie dough must be at least cold before baking, or the fat will melt too quickly, resulting in flat cookies.

- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, then add the butter, eggs, and vanilla and mix well. To make this step quicker, you can use a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
- Divide the cookie dough into 21 portions and roll each into a 1 1/2-inch-diameter ball. (and about 50 grams each).

- As you roll the dough, if desired, add a few more chocolate chips to each ball and roll them into the dough.
- Refrigerate the shaped cookie dough for at least 12 hours before baking to ensure the thickest cookies with the best flavor and color.
