Gluten Free Cookies: An Introduction to Drop, Shaped, and Cutout

Gluten Free Drop Cookies

Perfect for the beginning baker or for making with kids, gluten free drop cookies are some of the easiest and most flavorful cookies around. These are the ones we all grew up on, and they are just as delicious gluten free. No need to give up your favorites! Try Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies or Gluten Free Chocolate Dream Cookies to start out. Enjoy your freshly made gluten free cookies!

Quick Tip for Chilling Dough for Drop Cookies:

Now, you just made some cookie dough, rolled into a log and need to chill it. Drat! Every time you do this you end up with a flat edge. What to do?

Wrap up your cookie dough in waxed paper and slide it into the leftover cardboard tube from your used up roll of paper towels (you keep those in your I-don’t-know-if-I’ll-ever-need-these-but-I-can’t-bring-myself-to-throw-anything-away closet…right?).

Then pop in the refrigerator. When you pull them out later, voila….nice and round and ready to be cut into slices.

Gluten Free Cutout Cookies

Get prepared to make your favorite cut out gluten free cookies by bringing out the rolling pin and rummaging through the kitchen to find grandma’s cookie cutters. And don’t forget the parchment paper! To begin, go for Gluten Free Chocolate Wafer Cookies to get the hang of it.

Gluten Free Shaped Cookies

Round, square, triangle, balls, or thumbprints, you determine the size and shape of each scrumptious morsel. These are fun to bake and decorate. Start with Gluten Free Ginger Molasses Cookies to get rolling before hitting up Gluten Free Pizzelle Cookies. Note that these cookies work best when they have been chilled before shaping. Enjoy!
