Tips
Cooking Gluten Free?
Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
Pack the brown sugar firmly enough so that it holds the shape of the measuring cup when you tap it out.
Pecans or almonds are a nice alternative to the macadamia nuts.
