Living the gluten free life here. I substituted butter for margarine (of course), but otherwise followed the recipe. Interestingly, there is no cashew flavor while eating it, but there is a strong cashew aftertaste. Nice gluten free recipe with a perfect "cookie crumble" to it. In fact, I've substituted this mix of tapioca/corn/potato flour directly for wheat flour in other cookie recipes and they've turned out great (albeit with a slight corny flavor).


I substituted Soy Flour for Corn flour and extra peanut butter since I didn't have cashew butter. I also added Nestle's new Swirled chocolate chips and they were fantastic! I didn't have time to roll them into balls so I just dropped them by teaspoon fulls and they came out great. I'll definately make these again and try even more variations!


This is a really great recipe, my dad can't eat wheat so I'm always trying new recipes for him! I did change a few thigngs though: I omitted the cashew butter because we didn't have any, I replaced the corn flour with rice flour and the potato flour with sorghum flour. I also added about 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts and a cup of chocolate chips! They were great and chewy, you can't tell these are wheat free!
