Doves farm flours are the bees knees according to DD

THe basic 1 - 2 - 3 recipe works well with Doves Farm (i.e. 1 oz sugar, 2 marg, 3 flour). We add cinnamon / mixed spice / chopped glace cherries etc.

Also Delia Smith's recipe for gngernuts works v. well gluten free. I'll dig out the recipe fir you. You can also do it with honey and cinnamon for a change, and it's v. nice. (My dd lovesstrong flavours but i know some dcs find ginger a bit much!)

I use both of these recipes and they turn out really well. Rice flour is good for cake and biscuit making or just use Doves Farm.

Gluten free shortbead
4 oz Doves Farm Plain White GF Flour
2 oz cornflour
4 oz butter
2 oz castor sugar

Sieve all the flour together. Cream butter until soft then add the sugar and beat untill the mixture is pale and creamy.

Lift shortbread onto a large baking tray. Roll out a 8" circle. Pinch the edges and prick the shortbread well with a fork. Cut through into 12 sections with the back of a knife then sprinkle with a little extra castor sugar. Or just roll into balls and then flatten before pricking with a fork.

Leave to chill in the refrigerator for 15 mins then bake in a very moderate oven (160 C, 325 F Gas Mark 3) for 35 mins or until pale golden brown.

Cool on the baking tray for a few minutes then lift on to a wire tray to finish cooling.

Gluten free chocolate chip cookies
100g unsalted butter,
100g caster sugar,
1 large free range egg,
150g rice flour,
75g dark or milk chocolate
Cream butter and sugar add flour and beat in egg and finely chopped chocolate. Mix thoroughly.
Take approx 15g of mix and flatten into shape on a baking sheet.
Bake 15-20 mins 170C.
