Gluten Free Gingersnaps!

These are good. If you are looking for something healthy this isn't it! Its rare that I have a gluten free cookie turn out, and I'm an advanced baker. They are crunchy, but thats because I left them in the oven for 10 minutes instead of 8. My first batch was very thin so I mixed in another 1/4c flour. For my flour mix I kinda just guessed since I didn't have all the ingredients for the featherlight mix. I used 1 1/3c rice, 1/3c corn, 1/3c tapioca. Then later on I added 1/8 c of rice and 1/8c sw rice because I ran out of rice flour.

    Oh boy, these are super! <br/>I tweaked a few things. First off, I used brown sugar instead of white. My flour mixture was 3/4 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 potato starch, 3/4 cup white rice flour, 1/4 tapioca flour. I also used 3 chunks of crystallized ginger cut up small pieces and mixed into the flours. I refridgerated the mixture a bit after mixing. I baked them for 8 1/2 minutes - perfect! <br/>These taste just like REAL gingersnaps! <br/>Fabulous recipe! Thank you, Valgal123
