These, these, these! For the holiday, or everyday!

I adapted this recipe by loveandoliveoil.com to be gluten-free & changed a few other items too, because of what I had on hand – from their “Soft Goat Cheese Sugar Cookies”! Although, I must say, that gluten consumer or not, the gluten-free version will be gobbled up by all (& the gluten, probably never even missed)!

These Cookies can be stored at room temperature, in an airtight container for up to 1 week. I’m also anxious to see how well these freeze.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten-Free Baking Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Bob’s Redmill Xanthan Gum
