Found here:


1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup potato starch (not flour)
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons water

Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture:
2 tablespoons sugar mixed with
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add potato starch, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and water. Mix well to eliminate any lumps in the dough. Dough will be sticky. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Shape into small balls, using a slightly-rounded teaspoon of dough for each cookie. Roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Browning is not a good indicator for these cookies.
