Chocolate Chip M&M Freezer Cookie Dough
The dough only takes about 10 – 15 minutes to make. I love to make a batch of dough and keep it in an airtight container in the fridge, or drop it by rounded tablespoonfuls (Love love love using a cookie scoop for these) on a baking sheet and freeze he dough balls. Once frozen, put them in an airtight container. Bake following the recipe when ready to enjoy.
Gluten Free Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies
Changing recipes to make them gluten free can sometimes be difficult. This recipe works beautifully. I had the best results using a gluten free baking mix in place of the flour. I used Aldi brand, but any brand of Gluten Free Baking Mix should work. The M&M’s are gluten free. As always check all of your food labels beause brands can change their formulations.
