  • 160 g unsalted butter (melted)
  • 160 g soft brown sugar
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 50 g cream cheese (I use Arla Lactofree)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 330 g gluten-free plain flour (I use Doves Farm)
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 180 g Aero Mint (roughly chopped into chunks)
  • 40 g dark chocolate chips
  • Extra Aero Mint (to put on top, optional!)


  • Sieve gluten-free flour, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Whisk together ensuring ingredients are well mixed. Set this aside for later.
  • Place the melted butter, cream cheese, brown sugar, caster sugar and vanilla extract in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix at a medium speed for 3 minutes.
  • Add the egg and mix at a low speed until incorporated. Repeat with the egg yolk.
  • Add the flour mixture you prepared earlier to the mixer bowl. Mix on a low speed until just combined, stopping to scrape down the sides if necessary.
  • Finally, briefly mix through the Aero chunks and chocolate chips on a low speed until evenly incorporated.
  • Cover the bowl and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  • Once ready to bake, preheat the oven to 170°C. Roll the dough into evenly sized balls (each cookie should be approx 60-65g) and place on a lined baking tray. Make sure to leave enough room for spreading between each dough ball.
  • Bake for 11-12 minutes, keeping a close eye on them. Remember that if the cookies seem a little too gooey they will firm up more as they cool.
  • If adding extra Aero Mint chocolate on top, carefully push the chunks onto each cookie when they are fresh out of the oven.
  • Leave to cool on the tray for approx 15 mins before transferring to a cooling rack for another 30 mins to an hour.
