SO HOW'D IT GO?

do these have a apple / banan flavor by any chance? and how sturdy are these? Usually gluten free, let alone gluten free AND vegan sugar cookie recipes tend to crumble and be TOO light...?

I have been looking for a wheat-free recipe all the ones I have tryed never worked. But came across this one and had to modify it a bit with more flour about a cup more. If I didnt add the extra flour there was no way I could roll out the dough it was still so moist. But after  I cooked it for 15 mins (because it wasnt cooked in 8) it had a crunchy outside but gluey inside that wasnt cooked. even my kids wouldnt eat them. Any body else have these problems?

These were great! I got numerous compliments (and any empty cookie plate) after serving these at an impromptu Halloween/Samhain party. I did adjust the recipe slightly. I don't have any friends with a gluten/wheat intolerance, so I used half white and half whole wheat pastry flour and no xanthium gum/guar gum. I'll be making these again for Solstice, Yule and Christmas! :)

Where do you find xanthum or guar gum? Will the recipe work without it, or is there an alternative ingredient that is easier to find?

My cousin, who has celiac disease (and is also allergic to milk and eggs), too, absolutely loved these cookies, and thinks they taste just like "real" cookies. She thought they were store bought.

Hi BreyettEyes! Like the look of this recipe.  I noticed your rice flour mix and wondered what else you might use the blend for? Is it a general purpose flour? Thanks, Kikilola - PS:  How many cookies does it make?

it makes about 20 or 30 cookies all depending on te cookie cut out sze, i made about 12 large and sosos many little cookies. This flour can be used for most anything ranging pancakes, cakes, cookies, etc...i made it up for a friend with celiac and she loved them...enjoy*~!~
