My granddaughter and I made these and were very disappointed. We made a double batch and they did not keep their shape and the flavor of the GF flour left a bad after taste. We added some almond flavoring which helped.
I made this recipe with a flour blend I had on hand, they turned out great. My cookies remained in a mound shape but were still very tasty.
Delicious! Landolakes.com, you have the best GF cookie recipes! (I don't do well with potato starch, so I use a flour blend of 2 c. brown rice flour, 1/2 c. tapioca, 1/2 c. + 2 T. arrowroot flour, and 1 t. xanthan gum.)
Regarding comment by Toni (me!) I realized I forgot to rate the recipe. So, even with the little adjustment to the flour mixture, I give it 5 stars! If it passes the non-gluten free kid test, it's a winner!
Very good. A little gritty but likely the rice flour. Everyone lived them had no idea they were gluten free.
I made these for the first time last week and thought they came out absolutely wonderful! My daughter, who is not gluten free, loved them so much she said to me, "Please take these cookies outta here! They are so good, I can't stop eating them!" Now that was the best compliment I could receive! Because I could not find any potato starch at my grocer, I did a slight variation on the recipe with the GF flour and I personally, think the cookies came out better. Instead of using potato starch, I used Arrowroot. I also substituted 1/4 cup coconut flour in addition to the rice flour. The GF flour blend calls for 2 cups rice flour, so instead I used, 1 3/4 cups rice flour and 1/4 cup coconut flour. What I liked most about this substitution is that is seemed to remove some of the grittiness that I notice with using all rice flour, in addition it made the cookie slightly more dense, but to me, more flavorful and richer tasting. One thing to remember if using coconut flour is to add little bit of water when mixing. And I mean, a little bit, just to not have the dough be so sticky and thick. I also used this same substitution on the chewy chocolate chip cookies and they too came out better, thicker, and less gritty.
There are wonderful. I doubled the recipe and added 1 cup of cinnamon chips. AWESOME!
I'm not sure where I went wrong but my cookies are sort of gritty. Maybe it's because I increased the cinnamon after reading someone's review that said to increase it to 3 tsp. I'll try them again without doing that. I was so looking forward to homemade cookies that I can actually eat.
This recipe worked out fantastic for gluten free cookies, they're just like the wheat cookie. I did double the cinnamon because, well, it's the best part. The texture was spot on. But I thought the flavor of the actual cookie was a little off, it had a slight hint of baking soda or something, just can't put my finger on what. I will make again.
Delicious! I like a little more cinnamon, so used 1 T. sugar to 1 t. cinnamon, as in my gluten-full recipe.
These are delicious, my husband loves these cookies.
Fabulous! They were everybody's favorite.
So Awesome! I love these cookies. They taste like the gluten version I remember. It makes me want to cry; I am so happy.
I made these cookies and not only used the gluten free flour, but I also used 1/2 cup of Splenda in place of the sugar. Also rolled the cookies in a mix of Splenda and Cinnamon. So I ended up with a Gluten free, diabetic cookie. They were excellent!

We recently developed a recipe for a Yule Log Cake for our 2014 Holiday Brochure. In my family, our holiday traditions revolved around cut-out cookies; a Yule Log was never part of the mix. So I was intrigued and did a little bit of research to see what this was all about.
