You can find all purpose gluten free flours that are available that usually have a great texture and can work as an all-purpose baking flour, but again it's always a good idea to test these recipes first.
If all else fails, you can try reading the reviews. The reviews for easy cookies can reveal whether or not there is an issue with the recipe before you even start baking. For gluten-free recipes often the same basic baking rules apply. For the most accurate baking and gluten-free recipes, you don't want to alter the ratio of wet to dry ingredients when using gluten-free ingredients in place of regular wheat flour. Other tips include to only mix the cookie dough until just combined, being sure not to over mix. Be sure to refrigerate the cookie dough before baking. The colder the cookie dough, the less spreading will happen in the oven, which makes for softer, thicker cookies. And finally, you want to be sure and not over-bake your cookies. Use finely ground flours. Cookies that don’t have a lot of ingredients, and use a fine flour also helps prevent grittiness.
