How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well. Add potato starch, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and water. Mix well to eliminate any lumps. Dough will be sticky.
  • Mix 2 T. sugar and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Lightly oil hands or spray them with nonstick spray to better handle dough. Shape into small balls, using a slightly rounded teaspoonful of dough for each cookie. (I use a small cookie scoop.) Roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Place on lightly greased baking sheet and press each ball to even thickness of about 1/". Bake 10-12 minutes. A single cookie should be removed at the shortest baking time to test for doneness. Browning is not a good indicator for these cookies.
  • NOTE: Only 63 calories each.

    she has some good recipes...but I don't use any of them because she only uses starch and doesn't add anything to enrich her recipes with any nutrients....

    I know that criticism of the author's recipe is a poor excuse if I'm eating the goodie!!!! LOL
