I made these vanilla cookies yesterday, the reicpe is from Ribbits collection in her thanksgiving thread.
Very easy to put together and baked up very nice indeed.
I was not sure what to use as the potato starch flour since I couldn't find any at the HFS so I used potato flakes instead. the only other substitute I made was rice syrup instead of the honey or agave. I used all of the 2 tablespoons of water to make a nice simi dry dough ball. The cookies baked up to a nice gentle texture with a slight crispy edge. {just right}, they remind me of a cookie my Grandma made years ago, but I think she may have used a some molasses. Very nice cookie recipe, we like them! I do think they would be very boring with out the vanilla or some flavoring.

You could substitute almond meal or millet flour for the potato starch, or use mochi (sweet rice flour). Mochi is different than 'plain' rice flour--it's finer and starchier with a silky texture. You can find it in most health food stores or Asian groceries.

If you get bored with the vanilla flavor, try adding in a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger to the recipe and top the cookies with crushed crystallized ginger if you like. Or you can add a bit of Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur)and chopped toasted hazelnuts, which gives the cookies a lovely mellow taste. These remind me of pecan sandies, only better! I used to top this type of cookie with crushed peppermint candies, but haven't been able to find any that aren't made with corn syrup   Maybe add a few drops of peppermint oil to the cookie dough before baking?

Smint Xylicare might be a good mint to crush for the topping.  I haven't found the ingredients yet.
