Ive never seen anyone pre cook their crust before. I guess you are going for crispy crust?

When my wife asks me whether or not I liked something that was gluten-free she knows that I basically divide things into two categories, acceptable and unacceptable. These cookies are in the rare category of being delicious. I baked mine for 18 minutes and they are absolutely superb. Thanks so much for offering this.
Thanks for the kind words! So glad you like my Sugar Cookies. I have them every morning with my coffee. They also make perfect cookie-cutter cookies. Family favorite here?
