Expert Tips:

  • Allow eggs and butter to come to room temperature before incorporating them into the dough for a smoother blend.
  • Flatten the cookie dough balls slightly before baking to ensure even cooking and a nice cookie shape.
  • Gluten-free cookies can go from undercooked to overcooked quickly. Keep a close eye on them in the oven
  • Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This helps them set.
  • Just because it doesn’t have gluten doesn’t mean that gluten-free cookie dough is safe to eat raw.
