After being Gluten free for about a year I have managed to, in my opinion, perfect a few recipes. These yummy cookies are perfect for a naughty treat and the best thing about them is that they are so easy 

Step One

Mix the Granulated Sugar and Light Brown Sugar in a bowl with the Butter. I find that cutting the Butter into small pieces makes it much easier and quicker to mix. I use an electric whisk to speed this step up.
At this point I would also pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees // 160 for a Fan oven.

Step Two
Next, beat the 2 Eggs in a mixing jug and gradually add them to the Sugar & Butter, whilst continuing to blend with the electric whisk. At the point you should also add the Vanilla Extract.

Step Three

Now for the Chocolate!!.. Break the chocolate into small-ish chunks and add it to the beaten mixture. Also add the Gluten Free Flour Blend//or alternatively use 'normal' Wheat Flour if you prefer.
Mix these ingredients together using a wooden spoon. Be sure to stir in any lumps of flour you see.

Step Four

Once the mixture is fully stirred, you will need to prepare a baking tray. To do this, I just use a flat baking tray and cover it in grease-proof paper (to save on the washing up).
Make the cookies about the size of a Satsuma Orange (couldn't think of anything else a similar size).. and gently squash them down.

Now, after years of Cookie baking, me and my little brother think we have finally come up with an oven time that gives that elusive crunchy edge and soft centre...

12 Mins!.. Check them after 6 mins and then leave them another 6 :)
