    These look delicious! Thanks Andrea!

    I have whole wheat flour at home. I’ve seen the pastry flour version. Can I use what I have at home? What’s the biggest difference between what I have and the pastry kind? Thanks Andrea!

    • @Erin – yes, you can use the whole wheat flour. It’ll just make your cookie a little bit more dense.

    What flour would you use for gluten free?

    • @boni – I think you could use rice flour or potato flour. If you use any of the other flours (nut flours or bean flours), you may need to increase the binders (eggs).

        Can I use buckwheat flour?

        • @sharynguthrie:disqus yes, I think you can use buckwheat flour. Try it and see how it turns out.

            I followed the recipe with Buckwheat flour instead of the wheat flour. The flavor is very good, but the cookies are somewhat dry. Changes I would make next time will be to decrease the flour; I will add the last 3/4 cup slowly to get a consistency I like. I will also add a little more butter. This is quick and easy and a definitely keeper – perfect breakfast cookies! Thanks Andrea!

          • @sharynguthrie:disqus – thank you for sharing your version. Extra butter always makes cookies taste better!

    Don’t you mean parchment paper? I have read that it is NOT acceptable to bake on wax paper. It can transfer to your food and potentially catch on fire.

    • @Sandlady – yes, you can use parchment paper. Thanks for the catch!
