Crunchy Gluten Free Choc Chip Biscuits

We’ve been munching our way through numerous batches of gluten free Choc Chip biscuits and finally my young taste testers have given this recipe the go-ahead. It’s been a challenging task eating biscuit after biscuit, but they managed. The recipe makes thin and crunchy biscuits that taste fantastic. We’ve tried white and milk chocolate chips (too sweet for me, but kids disagree) and settled for the dark chocolate version. Best eaten warm from the oven when chocolate is gooey, but they will last for days in an airtight container. It’s worth visiting a health food shop or specialist supermarket for the brown rice flour and an Asian grocer to buy the other fine rice flours, as the combination will give a better result than substituting with shop bought GF flour blends.

140 grams butter, softened
½ cup white sugar
½ cup soft brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
170 grams dark chocolate chips
½ cup brown rice flour
½ cup fine white rice flour
⅓ cup glutinous rice flour (sticky rice flour) *see notes
⅓ cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon baking soda
Pinch salt

Preheat oven 180℃.
Cream butter and sugars using a mixer, or by hand. Add egg and vanilla, continue beating until well combined.
In a separate bowl sift tapioca and rice flours, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda and salt, stir to combine.
Add to the butter mix along with chocolate chips and combine with a wooden spoon. Use hands to bring dough together into a ball, if needed.
Place the dough
on a piece of plastic wrap and smooth into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls (makes 
approx. 2 dozen) and place on oven trays covered with baking paper.  Flatten slightly, allowing room for spreading.
Bake 15 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack.  

*Glutinous Rice Flour. This is finely milled sticky rice flour, it does not contain gluten. In Australia many Asian grocers or supermarkets carry Erawan brand glutinous rice flour.  It is also available in health food shops and online. Erawan also produces tapioca flour and fine white rice flour.
