Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

One thing I've learned about gluten-free cookie is that some of the food can be, well, downright weird tasting or just plain weird. Growing up in the Midwest and on the farm, we're used to old-fashioned, down-home cooking and baking. Since going gluten-free, I've learned to experiment. Much to the dismay some of my children someday! Cookies were something that they truly missed. These are simple, no fancy ingredients or things I can't pronounce or that aren't easily obtain at my local grocery store. They look like a chocolate chip and taste pretty darn close to a regular cookie.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups Namaste All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars and add in eggs and then vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and slowly add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls onto baking sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes on baking sheets and then remove to finish cooling.
