I Want To Marry You Cookies – Gluten Free
recipe makes about 5 dozen small 2-3" cookies or 3 dozen 3-4" cookies

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 ¾ cups brown rice flour
½ cup tapioca starch
¼ cup potato starch
1 teaspoon xantham gum
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (make sure they are certified GF if baking for persons with allergies)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (check to make sure they are certified GF)

In a large size saucepan, (I use a 4 quart pot) melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, remove from the heat and add the sugars. Stir until the sugars are well-incorporated and mostly smooth. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

While the mixture is chilling, mix together the dry ingredients and set aside. Remove the pot from the refrigerator and stir in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients in three stages and stir to combine. Add the chocolate chips and stir well to make sure they are evenly distributed. Chill the mixture for at least one hour, or until the dough is thoroughly chilled.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Scoop the dough unto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. (Placing the dough back in the refrigerator in between batches.) Bake for 10-12 minutes, larger cookies will require an extra minute or two in the oven. Let cool for 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack.
