These are as good as gluten free baking will get! I added a 1/4 t ground cloves, a 1/8 t nutmeg and a 1/8 t ginger to these to spice them up. They are really good! The batter will be sticky when you're done, so I recommend putting it in the fridge for 15 minutes or so for easier handling.

I made these cookies with potato flour and not potato starch. There is a big difference. When I printed the recipe out awhile ago, that is what the recipe said. As I looked over the recipe again to do the review, the recipe now says potato starch. I feel the review is not indicitive of the recipe now.

Thanks so much for sharing. I added 3/4 of a cup of soaked raisins, 1/2 teaspoon of ginger and nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon of cloves and 1 teaspoon of xanthum gum for the texture help. A nutritious and tasty snack.

This is a very tasty recipe. I used butter instead of shortening. I added some chopped dried cranberries to the top before baking, and then dusted with powdered sugar when cool. A festive looking cookie, as well as tasty, for my non-wheat eating friends.

I made these for a teacher with a wheat allergy, and had to sample a couple myself. They are fabulous! This was my first experience making cookies without all-purpose (wheat) flour, and did find the rice flour/potato starch combination create a texture unlike I have ever experienced in a cookie. Very, very good cookies!

My kids declared these "awesome". I did increase the sugar to a full cup, and added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Would have been better to add chocolate chips, but we didn't have any! :)

I was so delighted with these cookies, thank you to Beulah! They were easy to make and used limited ingredients, had a great texture and taste for a gluten free cookie!

I thought these turned out wonderfully. I omitted the walnuts and replaced them with Chocolate chips. They were a very big hit.
