Expert Tips

If aiming for a gluten free snack, always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free, as products and ingredient sources can change.

For easy cleanup, line the pan with nonstick foil instead of using cooking spray.

Use two 13x9-inch pans instead of the roasting pan if you'd like.
