Expert Tips

  • Baking gluten free? Always make sure to take time to read the labels to check that each ingredient is gluten free! Remember that product and ingredient sources can change.
  • Make clean-up a breeze by using a sheet of parchment paper over your cookie sheet when baking.
  • Help your cookies bake more consistently by using a cookie scoop to keep your cookies the same size.
  • This simple gluten-free sugar cookie recipe is great for a variety of occasions! For one twist, bake these cookies without rolling them in the sugar and instead frost them with gluten-free icing and sprinkles after they have cooled. Or experiment a little by adding in your favorite gluten-free baking chips to the dough before baking to make a variety of tasty cookies.
