Gluten-Free Cookie Tips

For best results:

Line the cookie sheet. Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. These work better for baking cookies than greasing the pan.

Cream the butter and sugar. Beating them on high speed for 1 to 2 minutes after they’re combined produces airier cookies.

Measure ingredients accurately. Spoon the flour into the appropriate measuring cup and level it with a knife. Don’t scoop.

Use large, room-temperature eggs. Bring refrigerated eggs to room temperature quickly by placing them in warm water while you read through the recipe and assemble your ingredients.

Don’t overbake the cookies. They continue to bake for 1 to 2 minutes after they’re removed from the oven. For softer, chewier cookies, bake them the shorter time allotted. For crispier cookies, bake them longer.
