  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons of Silvana's All-Purpose Flour (or a gluten-free flour mix from the grocery store)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-vegetable shortening, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks, chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the over to 375 degrees.

    Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Gradually mix the flour mixture; stir in the chopped chocolate.

    Using a 1 1/2-inch (3.5-cm) scoop or a rounded tablespoon, drop the dough 2 inches (5-cm) apart onto the prepared baking sheets.

    Baking until golden at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes.
