This recipe is a very popular gluten free recipe that is easy to make, delicious and very popular with everyone. It is important as you begin to make these cookies that you have all of the necessary ingredients gathered together and ready prior to beginning the baking process.
This cookie dough has a tendency to spread out while cookie, chilling it prior to placing it upon the cookie sheet helps to prevent that from taking place. So, try to chill the batter for at least 30 minutes prior to baking.
It is also a good idea to place a sheet of wax paper in between each of the layers when you stack the cookies on the cooling racks on inside the airtight containers for storage. If you don't, many of the cookies will stick to one another and make a simply awful mess when you try to break them apart.
These cookies can be easily frozen, tasting just as good as when they came out of the oven.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
