  • good except they cook in under 10 minutes and you really need to push a big hole for the jam

  • What quantity of flour do you usually use?

  • Hi Cathy,

    I don't generally measure the amount of flour. I simply add about a 1/4 cup at a time until I get to the desired consistency were I am able to roll them into balls. (At a guess it could be around 1.5 - 2 cups of flour??)

    Note you will tend to get different results depending on which Gluten Free flour you are using. I find a combination of Pamela's & Bob's Redmill make for the best cookies.

    Let me know how they work out.
