Jumbo Gluten Free Cookie Recipe

Jumbo Gluten Free Cookie Recipe

Yield: 24 jumbo cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 3/4 cups gfJules™ All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated cane sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
  • /4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract




Bring the butter and shortening to room temperature, then beat together with sugars until light and fluffy – several minutes. Mix in the vanilla extract and eggs until combined.

In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients (or add my gfJules™ Original Cookie Mix). Gradually stir these dry ingredients into the sugar mixture. Stir in chips and nuts, if so desired.

If using my gfJules™ Original Cookie Mix, you can bake the cookie immediately. If baking from scratch, cover with foil and freeze for at least 2 hours.

Scoop out 1/4 to 1/2 cup of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches for spread. If using English Muffin rings, place a scoop of dough in the center of each ring.

Preheat oven to 350° F (static) or 325° F (convection).

Bake jumbo cookies for 15 minutes, or until the middles look cooked but still soft. As the cookies cool, they will firm up but remain chewy, but if you leave the cookie in the oven until it is hard, it will be a “Chips a Hoy”-style crunchy cookie.

Makes approximately 24 jumbo gluten free cookies.

Decorate or frost with this easy dairy-free homemade frosting recipe.

Gluten Free Jumbo Cookies by gfJules are so much fun to decorate for any occasion!

    • Hi Mandy, you can either mix the entire can and freeze the dough that you don’t use now (that’s what I do – so handy!) or you can halve the amount in the can and halve all the ingredients you add to it, saving the rest for later. If you choose to make the dough and freeze it, you can either form the dough into balls and put in a freezer bag or form in a log that you can slice and bake later, wrapping well for freezing. Either way, enjoy the cookies!

  1. Confused? Should it be “Scoop out 1/4-1/2 cup of dough” instead of 1/2-1/2 cup? Thanks Jules….Love your products! Any chance of Organic flours and blends some day?

    • Hi Joanie – so glad you love my products! Thank you!!! As for the amount, you’re right, it should be 1/4-1/2. Thanks for pointing that out! Organic flours would be wonderful, but they’re second to certified GF products made in a dedicated GF facility. At this point, it’s super hard to find flour ingredients that are both certified GF and organic, and have reliable supply chains; the ones that are available are even more expensive, as I’m sure you can imagine. What I have done is to choose non-GMO ingredients wherever possible, and I feel really good about that! I hope this information helps – thanks for your support and for pointing out that misprint in the directions!
