Making the switch from gluten to gluten-free does have it’s downsides and one of them is that those chewy molasses ginger cookies you used to have or chewy oatmeal raisin cookies that used to be your pick at coffee shops is no longer allowed in your vocabulary of treats. The chewiness in baking is because of gluten strands forming within the other ingredients during mixing and baking but when gluten-free ingredients are removed it becomes much harder to have that chewy texture leaving lots of gluten-free baking products airy and crunchy. However, don’t throw in the towel on the gluten-free lifestyle just yet because there are some pretty delicious crunchy options. Introducing… Enjoy Life’s Crunchy Sugar Shortbread Cookies!
