This recipe makes 17 – 1 ½ ounce cookies. The texture is slightly chewy with crisp edges and a really good crumb. The raw dough can also be shaped into balls or discs and frozen, then baked at your convenience. Just make sure you drop the temp to 325° F and bake them for 18-22 minutes when starting with frozen cookie dough.
1 ¼ cups (5 oz or 141g) Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

1 large egg
1 T coconut milk

6. Slowly add the BBF mixture to the mixer. Mix until combined.

8. Chill dough for 1 hour before portioning and shaping into 1 ½ oz balls.
9. Place balls on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for ~14 minutes at 350° F.
10. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Store in an air-tight container.
