*Almond Flour:  This recipe was specifically designed to use almond flour.  We have no substitutions for the almond flour.  Additionally, spoon the almond flour into the measuring cup, do not pack it in.

*Cornstarch/Baking Soda:  If you want a chewier cookie, then scale back on the cornstarch or leave it out completely.  Additionally, scale back on the baking soda.  Baking soda creates a crispier cookie.

*Sea Salt:  Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.

*Serving:  Makes approximately 14 to 16 cookies.

*Storage:   Use within 5 days.  Freezes well.
