Expert Tips

All the ingredients are mixed in one bowl, so you can easily enlist the aid of any children in the house when making this recipe.

Two cookie sheets with sides can be used. No sides on your cookie sheets? Line them with foil, crimping the edges so the mixture won't slide off when going in and out of the oven. Using nonstick foil eliminates the need for cooking spray.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
