1cup unsalted butter, softenedFor dairy-free use Smart Balance butter, or vegan butter.
¾cupbrown sugar, packed
1teaspoonpure vanilla extract
1largeegg For egg-free/vegan use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Egg Replacer.
½teaspoongluten-free baking powder
2 ½cupsall-purpose gluten-free flour with xanthan gumI like Pillsbury gluten-free flour. Not all gluten-free flours are created equal. You may experience different baking results depending on the gluten-free flour blend you choose.
2cupschocolate chipsFor dairy-free/vegan use Nestle Simply Delicious or Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips.
In a large bowl beat the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.
Add the egg (or egg replacer), molasses, and pure vanilla extract to the butter mixture and mix until fully combined.
Add the gluten-free flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to the butter mixture and mix until fully combined.
Either stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon or use your mixer on low to mix the chocolate chips into the cookie batter.
Drop by rounded tablespoon or use a greased cookie scoop. (I used a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop). Place the cookies 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until they start to turn golden brown (the centers of the cookies will be soft). Please watch your oven because all ovens are different.
Cool and store leftovers in an air-tight container. Enjoy!

I always use a cookie scoop. I use a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop because I like a bigger cookie. It was a game-changer for me!
I also like to use Reynolds Kitchens Cookie Baking Sheets. It has a smart grid that makes it super easy to line up your cookies on your baking sheet. I but it at Walmart.
For the dairy-free option, I used Smart Balance butter and Nestle Simply Delicious Morsels. I also like Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips.
For the vegan (egg-free) option use Earth Balance butter, Nestle Simply Delicious Morsels, or Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips (or your favorite vegan butter and chocolate chips) and Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Egg Replacer.
Store leftovers in an air-tight container.
The cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.
