Gluten Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This mama has been busy experimenting with GF recipes. One thing on my list to perfect are chocolate chip cookies. I made a batch last week and they were so gritty, my son had one and asked me if he could please just the regular cookies. Poor guy, I don't blame him. 
Then a few days later, I tried another recipe and they were so hard and dense. 
This time, I decided to try my regular recipe, but make it with my favorite gluten free flour mix and some xanthan gum. Well my friends, I did it! I found the perfect recipe for gluten free cookies. They are soft, chewy and no grittiness!  
My son and daughter both loved these and agreed that they taste just like the regular cookies. 

This recipe makes 12 big cookies.
