Gluten Free Caramel and Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you love good, soft cookies and all things caramel, these are just the thing for you to make for yourself (or to share, if you're feeling generous.)

These cookies are all that you could ask for of a chocolate chip cookie, and more. The caramel just adds so much to them. No one would ever guess that they are gluten free, nor would they care if they did know. These are that great.

If you are looking for something fun and new to make this holiday season, then you should try these cookies out. Everyone will be sure to be pleased with them!

Gluten Free Caramel and Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  3. Meanwhile, combine rice flour, cornstarch, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium size bowl. Whisk to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat together the softened butter and sugars.
