*Or, use my gluten-free flour mix. It consists of three parts Asian white rice flour (much more finely ground that typical white rice flour) and two parts cornstarch. I make 5 lbs of this mix at a time. I use three 1-lb bags of Asian white rice flour and two 1-lb boxes of Argo cornstarch. Mix well, but gently in a very large bowl and then transfer to airtight storage containers (like Tupperware). Another choice is Jules All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour mix. Note: This recipe will NOT work with some other all-purpose gf flour mixes like Bob’s Red Mill or Bette Hagman’s mix. Other flour mixes not mentioned might work, but I can’t guarantee that. Finally, it's been my experience that these cookies fall apart if a baking stone is used.
Additional Notes: If these cookies get too hard on the baking sheet and can’t be removed easily, return to the oven for maybe 30 seconds. You may have to clean spatulas (I alternate between two) and even wipe off baking sheets of crumbs between batches. I cool on opened paper bags to help absorb extra grease.
