Gluten free toll house cookie recipe – dairy free, soft, moist, delicious!

I’ve had a lot of requests for mainstream recipes that can be swapped 1 for 1 with my ‘Erika’s All Purpose Gluten Free Flour’ Mixture… with many of those requests being for a traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.

Since we had 2 birthday parties to attend this week, I decided to try making my kids a special dessert. Calories in one large apple I ended up making Dairy & Gluten Free Nestle Toll House Cookies.

Calories in red apple They came out great on the first try with no modifications and perhaps a little better the second time around when I added a little Baking Powder to the mix.

I know these have ‘real’ sugar in them (*gasp!*), but if you want a taste like the original Nestle Recipe – which also maintains a soft & moist consistency, then this recipe will get the job done! If you’re not sensitive to dairy, feel free to use real butter – I’m sure the taste would only improve.

I hope you enjoy them as much as my handsome little crew did.

Here’s a link to the original recipe on the Nestle website and here’s my Gluten Free modified version:

• Whisk together Erika’s Gluten Free Flour Mix, Baking Soda, Baking Powder and Salt in small bowl.

• Beat Butter, Sugar, Brown Sugar and Vanilla in a stand mixer or in large bowl until creamy.

• If you are making the Vegan version of these, I highly suggest you chill the cookie dough at this point for at least 30 minutes – the results are much better!

• Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets (I use parchment paper).

• Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

• Can be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 week or in freezer for up to 8 weeks.
