    WicklewoodWench's Note:

    I was so pleased with these tasty classic biscuits. The texture is just like that of a non gluten free Ginger Nut, and as any coeliac knows it's the texture that usually suffers in adapting recipes. The recipe calls for 1lb 4oz of flour, however, this system doesn't like mixing pounds and ounces,,,hence "20oz flour."For a more authentic touch sprinkle some sugar on the dough just before baking.

      Awesome recipe! I use it as a base recipe to make gingernuts, spiced cookies (like with pumpkin spice), chocolate cookies. I have not had these fail yet.
      I use a cookie-maker (might have to make the dough slighter wetter)

      These were really good. I used a flour mixture of 3 c. white rice flour, 1 c. cornstarch and 1/2 c. tapioca flour. For my personal taste I would add 1/2 t. salt, extra cinnamon and maybe some vanilla. This dough has the exact texture of regular ginger snaps. I used a cookie scoop and did not flattten because I like them a little chewy.

      These cookies are so amazing. A true gluten free delight. They have a wonderful crisp texture and amazing flavor. I made half a recipe using a teaspoon cookie scoop and my yield was 45 to 50. The dough was soft but not to soft to gently roll into a ball and then dredge in the sugar. The balls were flattened slightly with the bottom of a damp glass. I will be making these again I am sure. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
