Biscoitos de Maizena (Sugar Cookies - Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Mary Thorpe.

2 cups cornstarch
1 cup sugar
1 egg
½ tsp salt
1 ½ sticks of unsalted butter (that equals 12 tablespoons)

Preheat oven to 375° F. Sift cornstarch, sugar and salt together, mix the egg and blend in the butter. Knead well. Let stand ten to fifteen minutes. I use a cookie press to drop them on a greased cookie sheet. It makes cookies in different shapes. But usually you shape them into balls in the palm of your hand and drop them on the greased cookie sheet. Then use the tines on a fork to make grooves on the cookies. They look really pretty that way. Some people like to shape the cookies into really tiny balls, others prefer them bigger. Bake for about seven minutes, depending on how big you make them. Let cool and serve with a wonderful cup of Brazilian coffee in the afternoon.

When I made them, I used salted butter and left out the extra salt. I experimented with different forms by rolling them out on a sheet (lightly floured with corn starch) and cutting them with a cookie cutter. They make great rolled cookies because you can re-roll the scraps without the dough getting tough. They came out fine - not too fragile once cooled.

You can also roll them into balls and flattened with a fork, which makes a plump little cookie, or you can roll them into balls and flatten them with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar (thats the classic way I used to make sugar cookies).

I have also rolled them out to ¼ inch thickness in the bottom of a spring form pan (one with a smooth surface, not bumpy like many are). The rolling pin went right across the top making an even thickness. When cooked (this took about 15 minutes) I cut into squares (the ones on the edges turn into triangles) and let cool. This was the easiest and best way that I tried so far.

Due to the nature of the kitchen on those kind of environments it is very hard to not have CC. They are obviously not confident that they are 100% gluten-free. Honestly I would not eat any any place like that due to CC issues. I had my share of so called gluten-free earlier on with my celiac in t...

I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale. It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad. It is on sale for...

Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a opti...

Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery sto...

So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contami...
