In a heavy-duty mixer:
2 sticks butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
Mix until combined.
Once that is combined add:
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 3/4 cup gf oats
1 cup rice flour
1 1/4 cup all purpose gf flour
Then add the good stuff:
1 bag chocolate chips and 1 chopped chocolate bar
1/2 bag chocolate chips and 1/2 bag butterscotch chips
1 bag white chocolate chips and dried cherries
Now comes the gf trick.
Put the dough in the freezer for about 10 to 15 minutes until it is cold.
Then roll a large teaspoon full of dough into a ball a little smaller than a ping-pong ball.
Place on greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cookies do NOT look done when you take them out. But they are.
And they are GOOD.
This is a variation on the cookies my mom always made for us. I had to adjust the flour and oatmeal a bit…but other than that it is the same. They are delicious.
* To make these cookies gluten-y replace rice and gf flour with 2 cups of wheat flour. Reduce oatmeal to to 2 1/2 cups. Do not freeze, and make cookies a little larger than a golf ball instead of smaller than a ping-pong ball.
