Can potato flour be used as an alternative to gluten free flour for a person with Celiac Disease?

Question by Natural Mom: Can potato flour be used as an alternative to gluten free flour for a person with Celiac Disease?
Gluten free flour is so expensive!!! Potato flour is not. I’m looking for a flour I can use to make bread, waffles, cookies, cakes, and use in frying.

I have found individual flours do not work as well as flour mixes in most applications. You could sure experiment and see if you like it but I caution you against getting your hopes up.

Alternative for shortening for peanut butter cookies?

Question by Chelsie.BaBy: Alternative for shortening for peanut butter cookies?
I don’t have any shortening and the peanut butter cookies recipe requires 1/2 cup of shortening. Is there an alternative that I could use? thanks!

Do you have butter? Shortening and butter are interchangeable.

When I say butter and shortening are interchangeable I mean you can use either in your recipe and nothing gets ruined. One reason you might want to use shortening in a cookie recipe is that it melts at a higher temperature, so the dough holds its shape longer in the oven, allowing the flour and eggs to set before the cookie collapses and spreads. So it is possible to produce a cookie that does not spread very much. Using butter or margarine (which has a melting point only a degree or two above butter) produces a cookie that spreads out more. However, It is does not spread to the point that is no longer looks good and shortening in general does not really add flavor to your cookies, while butter does. And most importantly if you already have butter in your house and don’t have shortening then you can save yourself a trip to the market.
