I made 4 batches of these cookies at Christmas. I made 1 batch from my mil recipe with regular flour. I tried one and mmmmmmmmm! So I looked for a GF recipe, and this was delish!!! I made the rest of my cookies using this recipe and ate waaaay too many. I am a fairly experienced GF baker and had no trouble making these. They whipped up quick in my food processor and were baked on parchment lined pans. Yummmm! BTW I toasted the pecans first-made it awesome!!!
Wow! This recipe is all it promises--quick, easy, and wonderfully tasty--no one I tried these on guessed they were gluten free. My gluten free children and friends and their non gluten free family members all loved this. Very tender, and yes, crumbly. I was never patient enough to refrigerate this, since the dough came out a good consistency, and the cookies came out nicely. Once I put in some extra xanthan gum (1 1/2 tsp.) and I liked how it helped the cookies hold together a little bit more. Don't forget the xanthan gum, you'll get crumbs. Delicious crumbs. Amazing texture, light and buttery, your family will be licking the bottom of the plate for any remains they can find. Not a single person I served these to--at least a dozen--thought these cookies were less than fantastic, gluten-free eaters or not. It's my new go-to staple for dessert!
