Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

You're going to love these cookies!  You can't even tell they are gluten free.  It makes a HUGE batch.  I like to bake a few trays, and freeze the rest as cookie dough so I can have fresh baked cookies whenever I want.  You can also easily half the recipe.

1 lb butter
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
5 cups featherlight flour
2 teaspoons soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups gluten free oatmeal
2 12 ounce bags chocolate chips

Mix well the butter, eggs, sugar and brown sugar.  Add flour, soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and vanilla.  Mix, then add oatmeal.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Bake at 375º for 8 - 9 minutes.

To freeze, just put them on the cookie sheet as if you're going to bake them.  Put them very close together so you can squeeze a lot on the tray.  Then put them in the freezer for a few hours.  Pull them out and put the frozen cookie dough balls into a freezer bag.  When you're ready to cook them, take them out of the freezer and let them defrost for 10 - 15 minutes on the counter, then bake.
