The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten free chocolate chip cookies that turn out just like real ones? 
Yes, please.

Soft and chewy, check.
Look pretty, check.
Still soft and chewy the next day, check.
Work every time, check.

Since I started eating gluten free I've been trying gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipes and failing. I tried making up gluten free versions of regular chocolate chip cookies and failed. I tried making up my own gluten free recipes and failed.

But this time I got it right. 

Oh, how amazing it feels to make a good batch of chocolate chip cookies again!
