Lightly sweet, melt in your mouth gluten-free butter cookies.



  1. Preheat oven to 350º

  2. Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes)

  3. Add salt and egg yolk and continue beating until well incorporated

  4. Add flour, and beat until just mixed

  5. Using a pastry bag and a large open star decorating tip (such as Wilton 1M), pipe wreathlets onto parchment-lined cookie sheets. Alternatively, shape them into pecan-sized balls, and flatten them into discs. These will not spread but try to leave about an inch between each for airflow

  6. If desired, sprinkle with coarse sugar

  7. Bake in the center of the oven for about 15 minutes, until the edges are just turning golden. They may seem soft, but they’ll crisp up as they cool

  8. Leave on a cookie sheet to cool

  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving if desired
  10. Enjoy!
