- 1 cup white rice flour
- 1 cup tapioca starch
- ½ cup potato starch
- 2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter room temperature
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- sweet rice flour or tapioca starch
- icing sugar, melted chocolate or candy sprinkles
- In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients.
- In an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add egg yolk and vanilla, mix until combined.
- On low speed gradually add the dry mixture just until combined. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and shape into a ball. Divide the dough in half onto 2 pieces of waxed paper. Flatten each one into a disk. Cover with the waxed paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare baking sheets.
- Gently roll out dough to ¼-inch thickness, sprinkling with flour as needed.
- Bake cookies in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until just turning golden on the edges.
- Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2-5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks. Cool completely before decorating.
- Rolling the dough with waxed paper on both sides makes it easy to flip over. Gently peel off the paper and cut out shapes. Sprinkle with a bit of flour if dough is too sticky. Transfer cut cookies to baking sheets and refrigerate 10-15 minutes for best results.
- Gather remaining pieces of dough from cut cookies, gather into dough ball and repeat as before.
- Refrigerate dough 10-15 minutes before rolling out again.
