Gluten-free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

How many chocolate chip recipes can you try? Apparently, quite a lot. I am always asked for chocolate chip cookies by my kids, especially when my daughter comes back from college. And I get tired of using the same trite recipes. So Instagram, once again, came to my rescue. The awarded Pastry Chef Karim Bourgi @karim.bourgi provided a wonderful and easy recipe on one of his posts. It’s rich in chocolate and nuts – even if I omitted the hazelnuts and doubled the chocolate. It’s also very quick to make. Today, working from home during a blizzard, I was able to prepare and bake 24 cookies in 45 minutes. The original recipe required refrigerating the dough for 3 hours, but I skipped the step and the cookies were absolutely wonderful. Interesting fact: I baked two batches on silicone mats and one on parchment paper. The silicone mats produced flatter cookie, which I personally liked better.
