Gluten Free Pizookie
2 1/4 cups (315 g) all purpose gluten free flour (I used Better Batter)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your blend already contains it)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
16 tablespoons (224 g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
5/8 cup (125 g) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (164 g) packed light brown sugar
2 eggs (100 g, weighed out of shell) at room temperature, beaten
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Vanilla Ice Cream, for serving
Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease 3 6 1/2-inch cast iron skillets or small round cake pans and set them aside.*
In a medium-size bowl, place the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt, and whisk to combine well. Place the chocolate chips in a separate, small bowl and add about 1 tablespoon of the dry ingredients to the bowl. Toss the chips to coat in the dry ingredients. Set both bowls aside.
In a large bowl, place the melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla, whisking to combine well after each addition. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the chips and reserved dry ingredients, and mix until the chips are evenly distributed throughout the dough. Divide the dough among the prepared skillets and smooth into an even layer in each skillet, then press the dough slightly further up the sides of the skillets to create a crust.
Place the skillets in the center of the preheated oven and bake for about 13 minutes, or until golden brown on the edges but still soft in the center. Remove from the oven, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and serve immediately.

- Baked in 3 greased 6-inch cake pans, following the recipe instructions as is otherwise;
- Baked in a greased 9-inch cake pan, baked at 375°F for about 22 minutes; or
- Baked into thick chocolate chip cookies by dividing the dough into 24 pieces of about 2 tablespoons each. Roll the dough into round balls, place the balls about 2-inches apart on a lined baking sheet and bake at 350°F for about 12 minutes or until golden brown on the edges and mostly set in the center.
