What kind of flour should I use for almond meltaways?

For this recipe, I used white rice flour. This flour is gluten-free. However, you can use an all purpose flour. You will still get a good and tasty cookie.

If you want to use a gluten-free flour, then ensure you follow the label instructions. For some gluten-free flours, you may need to use more water while others require only little water. 

However, note that flours differ in terms of structure, dehydration and usability.

Other kinds of flour you could use are tapioca, amaranth, quinoa and millet. You could also get creative with potato, chickpea and nut flour.

What kind of starch should I use for almond Meltaways?

If you are using an all-purpose flour, then you do not need to use a starch. However, if you are using gluten-free flour, then you need to use starch. 

Starch helps in the structure, texture and binding of the gluten-free dough. It is an essential component of gluten-free blends because it takes on the role of gluten.
