Our friends at Cup4Cup are helping us make your gluten-free Holiday baking a piece of cake. First time baking gluten-free? No worries tough cookie, you’ve got this! Did you know you can use Cup4Cup flour to replace all-purpose flour cup for cup (1:1) in most traditional recipes for cookies, cake, biscuits, muffins and more? Cup4Cup makes changing your favorite recipes to gluten free versions as easy as possible.
Tips & Tricks Because the holidays are really all about the cookies, Cup4Cup’s Chef Allie shared with us her tips for baking the very best gluten-free cookies:
For chewier, tastier cookies, refrigerate your cookie dough before baking for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to overnight. Chilling the dough solidifies the fat which prevents spreading during baking, creating a chewier texture. It also makes the dough easier to handle and brings out the butterscotch & toffee notes in the cookie dough.
It’s important to bake on cooled and clean baking pans; that means allowing time for the pans to cool in between batches. If you don’t, you may end up with unevenly shaped cookies. Wipe your sheet pans in between batches to remove residual grease or fat from the last batch of cookies. Or to save time by using parchment paper for each batch. Continue reading →

The idea of a sweet dessert smoothie made from avocados may seem a bit strange at first, but it’s delicious – we promise!
