This is a family recipe that my husband has warm memories of with Christmas.
With a bit of tweaking these taste just as great gluten free!!
1/2 cup butter
1cup brown sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 + 3/4 cup Gluten Free flour mixture
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup ground blanched almonds
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
Cream butter to soften. Add brown sugar and cream thoroughly. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and xantham gum. Blend into creamed mixture.
Stir in ground almonds.
Roll out between floured parchment paper. *this dough can become sticky very quickly. When that happens, just put back in fridge to chill again.*
Cut with cookie cutters.
Bake at 350.
Watch closely. 10-14 minutes with edges browned. Let sit on cookie tray for 5 min before moving to cooling tray.
And then we turn them into amazing Christmas cookies!!
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family!!
