Cooking Gluten Free?
Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
Rather than a fork to press the dough into the classic criss-cross pattern, use a cookie stamp or potato masher.
This recipe was created for our new Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Rice Flour Blend available in grocery stores in late July. Until then, feel free to try this recipe using any gluten-free all-purpose rice flour blend found in larger supermarkets and co-ops.
