    Two questions: What could I substitute for the egg? I’m currently egg-free too. Secondly, where can I get pixie dust????

      Hi Betty,
      sorry, I hadn’t correctly linked the pixie dust recipe to this one. It is fixed now.
      If you have to avoid eggs as well, I would use this recipe instead. http://www.gfdoctorrecipes.com/nectarine-roses-for-gluten-free-ratio-rally/

        Let me know what you think, I’ve really loved the changes in texture from hard and easily staling to softer/spongy
        Have a great Thanksgiving
