Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    COOKING GLUTEN FREE? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Tip 2
    Success: Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated. Evaporated milk is thinner and does not contain added sugar, which is needed for the recipe.
  • Tip 3
    How-To: No baking pans with sides? Line 2 large cookie sheets with heavy duty foil and fold up all the edges so the mix does not slide off.
