I actually think this is the better book to start with if you are undecided which of Bette's books to get first. I say this because the recipes are all written to use either the standard no bean flour mixture, or they use readily available single flours such as cornstarch or potato starch both found at the supermarket or fine rice flour, tapioca flour, mochi flour aka sweet rice flour (all 3 available at Asian grocery stores for a lot cheaper than the gluten free aisle at the supermarket or health food store). Cornstarch is cheaper at Costco where I live, and potato starch is horribly expensive.
The shortbread recipe for example simply uses butter, sugar (I used icing sugar instead of white granulated), cornstarch and mochi (sweet or "glutinous') rice flour. Nothing else. Blend together, knead a bit to hold together, roll into a log and slice off 12 rounds. Bake. Less than 5 minutes. Your oven won't even be up to heat yet!Read more ›
