Chef’s tip: For an extra crunch, make sure to add some almond slivers or chopped walnuts to the dough mix!

Chef’s tip: Substitutions** If you do chose to use a gluten free flour, you may have to press the cookie down with a fork to flatten. You may also switch out the organic cane sugar for coconut sugar, pure maple syrup, or any sugar of your choice.
