Tips for the BEST Gluten-Free Cookie Dough

#2 Dough is sticking to the parchment paper when rolling out
#3 Some cookies are crispy others are soft after baking
The best gluten-free sugar cookies are always achieved when you follow the recipe, without substitutions, and then troubleshoot.

Troubleshooting the dough is essential before freezing (see above paragraph).
Make a ball or log with your dough and wrap it in several layers or plastic wrap tightly. Place it in a zip bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
Follow the recipe directions (rolling and cutting) and bake as directed.
