    ¿Can you swipe the tapioca flour for tapioca starch?

    Thank you!

    Just pulled these out of the oven – pretty and tasty. But baker beware….make the cookies smaller than your think if you want them to not fall apart. As in, one quarter of a mason jar lid…bite sized. I also subbed coconut sugar for the maple sugar (just didn’t have any) so that does work, too

    Stubbs, What does one quarter of a mason jar lid even mean? Just use inches or centimeters
