  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, applesauce, lemon peel, and extract. Combine the potato starch, garbanzo and fava flour, tapioca flour, salt, xanthan gum and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls and roll in coarse sugar. Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks.
  • Editor's Note: Always check ingredient labels for gluten content. Product formulations may change. If you're concerned that your brand may contain gluten, contact the company. This recipe was tested with Bob's Red Mill garbanzo and fava flour.
