  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose Gluten free flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 1.5 cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375° and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl beat together the softened butter, white sugar and brown sugar until well combined. Add in the egg, and mix well, then add in the vanilla.
  • Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add this to the wet mixture and mix until all combined. Now add in the hot water. Once the batter is mixed, fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the though out on the cookie sheet. I used a cookie scoop with about 1.5 tablespoons of dough. Place dough balls 2" apart on the cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool on baking sheet for two minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack.


Use any chocolate chips you like. I used milk chocolate. 
Sprinkle with sea salt for a sweet and salty cookie!
