    Ewok's Note:

    I came up with these while trying to make something as a Christmas gift for a friend who cannot have gluten or dairy products and these turned out pretty good (after a failed attempt at butter-free, gluten-free shortbread). I drizzled with some melted dark chocolate for a more elegant look. My friend gave it a great review, so I'm posting it here for others to enjoy. Bon apetit!

      I have multiple allergies and a sweet tooth. These were wonderful! I used tapioca starch instead of the cornstarch and didn't have any orange extract so used vanilla extract but they would be good with citrus and I think lemon zest would be yummy too. My non-allergic husband and kids ate these up. Thank you!

      These were excellent! I did use shortening and regular flour because I'm only DF, not GF, but they still turned out excellent. A great flavor and texture, easy to make, and they made the house smell DELICIOUS!
