Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes you just want a chocolate chip cookie. A simple classic cookie; not too crisp, not too cakey. I've had quite a few disappointing gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, but these might be the best I've ever had.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 stick unsalted margarine or butter (softened)
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2g tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 c. oat flour
1/3 c. tapioca starch
1/4 c. potato starch
1/2-3/4 pkg. high-quality chocolate chips (I like guittard dark chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bow with electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Mix in brown and granulated sugars, salt, and vanilla until fluffy. Mix in egg, baking soda, and xanthan gum. Add flour. Mix on low until incorporated. Mix in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
