I have always LOVED Spritz cookies at Christmas, but for 4 years I haven't made them or had them
because of being Gluten Free. I decided to do something about that today and here is what I came up with.....
The Recipe was easy to convert and I think they are really quite tasty.
They came out light and flakey.
If you do try the recipe, stop by and let me know how you like it. :)
Gluten Free Spritz Cookies
1 cup butter softened
2 TLB heavy whipping creme
3 egg yolks
2 TLB almond Extract
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1 1/3 cup of confectioners sugar
1 cup of sweet rice flour
1 cup of corn starch
3/4 cup of tapioca flour
1 dash of salt (less than 1/4 tsp)
1 egg white and 1/4 c water mixed well
for egg wash
cookie decorating colored sugars
Combine butter egg yolks almond extract and sugars and cream.
Mix until creamy.
Add flours, salt and cream of tarter
Mix very well.
Use a spritz cookie maker to make shapes.
If you don't have one, you can form shapes yourself, but that would be a lot of work. :)
Brush each cookie with egg wash and then sprinkle with decorator sugar.
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Bake in 325º oven for about 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookie will feel crisp, but not be browned.
Let cool on wire rack.
