    It does not taste like the flaky buttery danish pastries I am used to. However, it is probably the best thing I am going to get while dealing with gluten sensitivity. It tasted a lot like ...

    For those that have reviewed this recipe and said that it had a chalky taste, it's your GF pancake mix. I usually use Pamela's pancake mix and it doesn't have the chalky taste.

    Judith is right - these are too chalky (I called it floury) time I'm going to try 1/2 cup less flour and maybe an egg - maybe that will work...I used the cream cheese filling on this ...
