INA GARTEN'S GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES
So many people are on this gluten-free kick and are always asking for gluten-free recipes. Gluten-free recipes are easily adapted from your own regular recipes. However since so many ask for more information I am posting this from Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa.
So many people ask me for gluten-free recipes that I decided to investigate. Happily, Thomas Keller, the amazing chef/owner of The French Laundry and other fabulous restaurants, had so many requests for dishes without gluten that he decided to develop a non-gluten flour with ingredients like rice flour, tapioca flour, and cornstarch. It’s called Cup 4 Cup (http://www.cup4cup.com/), because you can substitute one cup for every cup of all-purpose flour in the recipe you’re using. I put C4C to the test and found it to be extraordinary in everything I tried. This is my recipe for Gluten-Free Chocolate Chunk Cookies (http://barefootcontessa.com/recipes.aspx?RecipeID=967&S=0)--adapted from my original Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe in "Barefoot Contessa Parties!" (http://barefootcontessa.com/shop/buy_now.aspx?CookbookID=5) Believe it or not, the cookies with Cup 4 Cup are just as delicious. Your gluten-free friends will thank you, your other friends won’t know the difference, and your secret will be safe with me!
