Letting the dough rest produces a softer cookie and removes the grainy texture so prevalent in GF foods. It also produces a deliciously toffee-like flavor to boot! You can certainly bypass the resting period, but for the most delicious cookie, let it nap for a little while!

All Magnolia Mixes GF mixes are nut free. While we previously used an 'almond powder' (ironically made from stone fruit pits, not almonds) in our Banana Bread mix, we've decided to drop that ingredient so all our wonderful nut-free customers can enjoy our mixes without hesitation or worry!
We recommend using parchment paper for the best results. The cookies will hold their shape while baking, and not spread out too much when baked on parchment paper. That being said, your cookies aren't going to disintegrate if you just use cooking spray!
Most of our mixes need no alteration at altitude. However, the chocolate chip cookies turn out a bit fluffier and lighter if you add 1 additional tablespoon of all-purpose gluten free flour and decrease the butter to just 3 tablespoons.
We package the chocolate chips separately so that you can stir them into the cookie mix after the 3 minutes of mixing. This will protect the chips from breaking during mixing.
