Hi Sarah, you can freeze the un-cooked mixture and bake the cookies from frozen allowing 2-4 minutes longer in your cooking time. Enjoy!

Sarah Cable

Can the mixture be frozen and baked at another time?

THIS RECIPE IS BOMBB a bit werid at first but as u add the flower and baking powder and mix it all together it taste better than the shop recipes!!!  Couldn’t stop eating it before and after it’s cooked

Hi Sarah, yes they can - the texture might change slightly due to the nature of the gluten free flour. You may need to apply a little bit of trial and error with the quantity to get the right consistency. Good luck! The dh team

Can these cookies be made with gluten free flour?

I’ve made this recipe a couple of times now. They’re so quick to make and absolutely YUM! I make them smaller than suggested using a small melon scoop. Everyone just loves them.

I made these cookies this afternoon. I doubled the recipe to feed my large family and I have to say they are amazing. Crumbly and melt in your mouth. Big hit here and cannot wait to make them again.
