This sounds like it would convert to gluten free without any problems. I've printed off the recipe. TFS

Great Recipe

Made these today. They are excellent. I will need to adjust the recipe since I convert to gluten free flour. I either need to adjust the flour amount or bake less since I use a glass pan. I will be making them again.
