Expert Tips

Sorghum, a grass that is ground into flour for gluten-free baking, provides 4 grams of fiber per half cup. These cookies freeze well for a quick snack. For a cake-like cookie, eliminate the chocolate chips and nuts.

Try a silicone baking mat when baking cookies, and there’s no need to grease your cookie sheets. The reusable baking mats turn any cookie sheet into a nonstick surface and save on cleanup.
