    This recipe comes to us from Betsey Carus. Makes approximately 14 - 2 ½ inch round crackers.

    1/3 cup potato starch flour
    1/3 cup (50g) ground almonds (see NOTE)
    2 Tablespoons olive oil (use any oil available)
    4 Tablespoons water (keep 2 in reserve)
    pinch of salt (optional)

    Preheat the oven to 450F.

    Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and grease with oil. Or just use the aluminum foil. They come off the foil without cracking since the foil peels off easily. Mix together the potato starch flour, ground almonds and salt. Mix together the oil and 2 Tablespoons of water, slowly add the dry ingredients using a fork to mix the dough (add the reserved water if too dry, dough should hold together but not be sticky).

    Knead the mixture and form a ball (if sticky, add a little potato starch flour). Take walnut size pieces of the dough and flatten onto the cookie sheet. Makes them about 2½ inches round. Prick with fork and bake for 10 minutes. (I now dont usually prick them). DO NOT OVERBAKE. They taste better when they appear slightly undercooked--the top should still be white with the edges just browning.

    NOTE: Do not grind the almonds very fine, it is better if it has larger pieces. DO NOT use only the commercially ground almonds because they are too fine, you may want to mix the commercially ground almonds with some hand crushed pieces. I usually use a hammer to crush the whole almonds and this seems to be the right size. You dont need to remove the skin.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    Makes 2 large sheets.
    This recipe comes to us from Bev Wahl.
    1 cup Gluten Free Pantry French Bread mix
    4 tablespoons water
    1 egg
    Mix all ingredients in mixer on high until dough forms a ball. Roll out dough thin in between two sheets of parchment paper dusted with more mix. Cut into squares and prick with a fork to make it look like Matzo and to keep it from rising at all. Bake at 440F on parchment paper for 18 minutes. Remove and cool.

    Ingredients:
    4 tablespoons rendered chicken fat (*you can use plain oil, but its not nearly as good. I use Empire Kosher rendered chicken fat – pre-frozen in tubs)

    Food and this time of year just getalong. As I ready myself for the cookie making extravaganza thatwill be Christmas, I still yearn for comfort foods equally associatedwith the month of December. These cold winter nights are just madefor customary cuisine like latkes (potato pancakes to theuninitiated).
    Ever a favorite Hanukkah food, latkescan be made of many different ingredients. Originally, they wereactually made with cheese. Religious lore has it that Judith fedcheese to the leader of the Jewish enemies. The cheese made himthirsty, and to quench his thirst, he drank excessive amounts ofwine. After he was drunk, Judith cut off his head .....
