Recipe substitutions?

I'm trying to make cookies, and the recipe calls for xanthan gum. I don't have any, and I have no desire to make a special trip out to get some. I feel confident using vegan substitutes, but I have no idea how I could substitute xanthan gum. Any suggestions? Here is the recipe

It comes from and it uses their brand of gluten-free flour.

1-2/3 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup Butter
3/4 cup packed Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
1 large Egg
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup chopped Walnuts-Baker's Pieces

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a large cookie sheet or line with parchment paper; set aside.

Stir together the GF baking flour, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt; set aside.

In a large mixer bowl, beat butter (room temperature, not melted) with granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and egg; scrape sides of bowl frequently. Beat in flour mixture on low speed, mixing thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Shape dough into flat disk, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2” apart on baking sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes on center rack of oven or until lightly browned. Cool 2-3 minutes before removing from cookie sheet.

Yield: 24 cookies
