Hey Vincent, I could not throw the whole bag in as I had bought one of those gigantic ones at Cosco. LOL>

Well, I made a batch today and used the Spectrum Organic Shortening. They came out exactly the same as the ones I made with Crisco. Just thought I'd update :D

I used the potato starch recipe and margarine sticks (not real butter) - do you just use gluten-free flour (instead of potatoe starch) in the normal recipe and not change anything else?


Yes, I use the Bette Hagman gluten-free flour recipe. 3 C br. rice flour, 1 c potato starch, 1/2 C tapioca starch and 2-1/2 tsp. xanthan gum. I sift it 3 times, then put it in a container to store in the fridge.

To make the cookies, I just follow the recipe on the back of the bag, substituting the flour. I substitute eggs usually too, and still don't get flat cookies.

What egg sub did you use? I tried te geltin one this time, and I think thats why mine are a bit gummy.

Patti ~ glad that it worked the same w/the Spectrum ~ I love that stuff ~

Vincent ~ sorry your cookies came out gummy...I think my recipe used Ener G egg replacer.

Now I'm in the mood for chocolate chip cookies ~ will have to make some later!

This is a terrific recipe! I made these with Tapicoa flour, since I can't have potato. I put in extra flour until the dough was thick enough.

I also used Crisco. The first batch turned out great. The next batch tasted good, but they were very flat.

I'm not a careful measure-er, and I suspect the amount of shortening or butter is to blame. Those of you with flat cookies might try using less butter.

Slick pans also make cookies flatter. Even if the cookie sheet isn't non-stick, it may still have a very slick surface. I'm going to try making a batch on wax paper to see how that works.

Don't use wax paper because the wax melts off of it and ruins both your cookies and your cookie sheet. Use parchment paper instead, it's coated in silicone which does not melt.

Thanks for the tip. I won't use wax paper. However, is parchment paper a "non-stick" type surface? I'm trying to keep the cookies from spreading.

Yes. I've always used it for baking cookies with excellent results. It's also really handy because you can "stage" your batches and not have to wait for your cookies to come out and cool before setting up another pan.

Gelatin doesn't work well in cookies. I know your wife will cringe at the thought, but try some ground flax meal (about 1 Tbs.) mixed in 3 Tbs. water, mixed in with the sugar. Then also use the egg replacer. This will make them stick together and puff that little bit. I also usually use 1/3 C of almond butter, but I think you try to stay nut free.

You can use Ener-G or another replacement that has baking powder in it. The point is that for cookies you need both qualities of eggs - the stick-together factor and the puffing-up factor.
