Gluten Free Almond Cookies

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!!

Ingredients

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.

Chill.

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!!
