These came out great! Nice and crispy on the outside. They are just a bit chewy on the inside. I'm going to try tweaking the recipe a bit next time I make them, but for a first try with a gluten free recipe, this is definitely a keeper!! I actually got the recipe from and was going to post it here and found I didn't need to! :) My husband likes them and he's not even gluten free!

These are AMAZING! The only thing I changed was using Expandex Modified Tapioca Starch instead of regular--I've found a lot of success with this. I tried making rolls with this recipe, and they were delicious!! SO happy to have found this great recipe!! :)
