Gluten Free Danish

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by GlutenFreeGirl

WOW! I just made these delicious danish's. Not only were they fabulous, but they were really quick and easy to make!! Although they don't have a flaky pastry taste like the gluten containing danish's, they have their own little marvalous taste.You won't be able to eat just one! You can make these with your favourite jam. I used a tablespoon of raspberry jam on each danish and drizzled some icing on top.

These were good. I do believe this is a Roben Ryberg recipe and most of her recipes have too much xanthan gum for my taste so I reduced it by half. The danish did spread more but they were very good. I would use butter next time and maybe add some vanilla because it did seem like something was missing in flavor. I used super fine thai rice flour and millet for all the cornstarch and potato starch and they were very tender. This recipe is very forgiving if you have to substitute starches or flours.
