Gluten Free Fortune Cookies

Get lucky with fortune cookies!

Did you know that eating cookies can bring you good luck?  Especially since 2011 is the Year of the Cookie.

I baked these gluten free fortune cookies for my Mom’s birthday with special messages inside like “To a 90 year old, you’re young” and “What’s another decade?” and “At least you get to eat cake.”

To make the cookies, I used this recipe but substituted all-purpose gluten free flour* plus 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum.  For a first attempt at fortune cookies, they turned out good.  Next time, I won’t make as many at one time since the cookies need to be shaped while they’re still hot.

*A combination of flours usually gives the best result for gluten free baked goods.  Combine 6 cups brown rice flour, 2 cups potato starch, 1 cup tapioca starch, and 1 cup almond meal in a large container and blend thoroughly.  Store this flour blend in the fridge (if you don’t bake often) or get busy and make some more fortune cookies.
