The first ever gluten-free cookies I made were those shortbread chocolate chips cookies. I chose them, because my little one just loves chocolate chips cookies and I decided it would be a safe bet to make something he just adores so that not to notice the different flour I was going to use.
I was surprised how good they turned out to be. That day I didn’t have gluten-free white flour, so instead I used a cornmeal flour and yet the cookies were super delicious, just a little bit crumbly (because of the flour used).
Next time I used a gluten-free white flour and the result was that I got cookies like the ones we were used to have before – exactly as delicious as we remembered them, still crunchy from the nuts ad chocolate chips, but now they were in line with my son’s dietary requirements.
I am presenting the recipe below for the shortbread chocolate chips cookies my family loves. The recipe is very easy to make, the cookies are always as beautiful and as yummy as you want them to be, and the nuts and chocolate chips add a nice flavours that go together so well.
Hope you like them as well.
Gluten-free Shortbread Chocolate Chips Cookies
250gr gluten-free flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
230gr soft butter
100gr caster or fruit sugar
100gr plain chocolate chips
100gr chopped nuts
In a bowl, sieve the flour with the baking powder and salt
Add the butter, sugar, nuts and chocolate chips and mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Use your hands, it might be easier. You should get nice smooth not-very hard batter
I personally added 2-3tbsp cocoa powder as well the first time I made them to make the cookies look more like triple-chocolate cookies (which are my little ones all-time most loved), but I don’t have to do that anymore, because the cookies are so damn good anyway.
Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper and using a spoon make walnut-sized balls, place them in the baking tray and flatten them, leaving space between each of them
Bake in the oven at 160-180°C for 20 minutes until golden. Leave to cool
