Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies are the perfect holiday treat! They are simple to make and so delicious. I love that they are gluten free and can be enjoyed by everyone. These cookies are perfect for any holiday gathering or just to have on hand for a special treat. They are also great for gift giving. I know that I will be making them for my friends and family this holiday season.
1/2 cup Cornstarch
175 g Butter
1/2 c Powdered sugar
1 c Rice flour
Sugar (for sprinkling)
Sift together cornstarch, sugar and rice flour. Add butter, mixing with hands until a soft dough forms. Chill for one hour in refrigerator. Shape the chilled dough into 1 inch balls. Place balls about 1 1/2 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Flatten balls with a lightly floured fork. Bake at 300 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
You can also roll the balls before flattening in finely chopped nuts, make an indentation in the top of the ball and add a small amount of jelly. Then flatten and bake.
