  • Set oven and prepare baking sheets. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Make batter. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the butter with the sugars, sour cream, vanilla and salt. Once it's completely smooth, add the egg and stir to combine thoroughly.
    In a larger mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour, buckwheat flour, xanthan gum, and baking soda. Mix just until everything is incorporated evenly and there are no dry spots.
    Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Shape. Use two teaspoons or a 1 inch cookie scoop to shape the batter into balls. Place them on the parchment-lined baking sheets as you go, at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake. Bake the cookies in the preheated 350°F oven for about 8 minutes. They should be soft when they are removed from the oven, and will firm a bit as they cool.
  • Cool. Let them cool on the baking sheets for at least 15 minutes.


I like these cookies to be on the small side, but of course you can make your cookies any size you'd like to.
