I then add 1 tsp of guar gum in the mix for each cup of flour used. I then use the other ingredients call for in my pre-gluten free recipe.

You can order sorghum flour online from Vitacost, Bobs, amazon. I saw where even bulkfoods.com had started selling it. (Our WalMart was selling it and they stoped. ;/ )
Thank you! I can get tapioca flour I'm pretty sure but I've never used it so I didn't know how it works. I'll see if I can get some today. I found a localish coop that sells sorghum, the whole grain, for a pretty good price but I didn't want to wait on that. Now we can have cookies while we decorate for Christmas!
