Homemade Cookies for One
Gluten Free, Irresistible

This recipe for gluten free chocolate chip cookies motivated me to bake twice in one day. See why in Smart Cookies #28. The recipe only yields about half a dozen lip-smacking, delicious cookies. The good news, depending on where you stand, is that they have no wheat flour and, therefore, no gluten.

If you just want a few homemade cookies in the least possible amount of time, you may think of rolling out a tube of refrigerated cookie dough, slice it, and bake. I can’t imagine, however, where the fun would be with this task. You sacrifice creativity, fun, and maybe quality for convenience.

Did I mention that you can certainly double or triple this recipe if desired? So problems are solved if there is any.

Both rice flour and glutinous or sweet rice flour are available in any Asian supermarket. Glutinous rice flour is also known as sweet rice flour.
