Cooking Gluten Free?
Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
When these cookies are all dressed up, they take the stage on the cookie plate. But they are so good just cut into circles, left undecorated and enjoyed as an after-school snack.
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.
