How to Heat Treat Flour
If you’re wanting to heat treat your flour, simply spread it out in a thin layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Pop it in an oven heated to 350 degrees fahrenheit and remove it after 5 minutes! You can go ahead and use the flour once it has cooled completely, or store it in an airtight container at room temperature until you are ready to use it.
Why Heat Treat Flour?
The purpose of heat treating your flour before you use it is to kill any potentially harmful bacteria in the flour as well as increase its ability to absorb moisture. Heat treating flour makes the flour softer in consistency and makes your cookie dough turn out THAT much better!
How to make Gluten Free Cookie Dough
Spread your flour out on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Let it cool completely.
In a bowl, add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir to combine. In a larger bowl, add the butter and both sugars, beating with an electric hand mixer until the mixture is nice and creamy.
Add in the vanilla and beat once more. Now, add in the flour mixture and stir to thoroughly combine. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Now it’s time to enjoy your cookie dough! You can chill it first to firm it up, if you’d like, or just go ahead and dig in right away!
How to use Gluten Free Cookie Dough
There are so many ways to use this tasty treat! You can go ahead and dig in by the spoonful or crumble some cookie dough over your ice cream sundae to dress it up a bit. You could also add some to your morning bowl of oatmeal for a treat or mix some into a bowl of greek yogurt for a healthier dessert. The sky’s the limit!
Can I bake this Cookie Dough?
I would not recommend baking this cookie dough, no. It does not contain egg, so they won’t bake well. Stick to eating it with a spoon!
How to store Cookie Dough
This cookie dough is FANTASTIC because it keeps well in the fridge and freezer until you are ready to enjoy it! I recommend storing it in an airtight container that is labeled with the date you made it. In the fridge in a container, it will last up to 2 weeks. In the freezer, it can last up to 3 months!
