    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!

    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sift together the corn starch and flour in one bowl.
    2. 2
      Mix the margarine and sugar until fluffy in another bowl (I did this by hand).
    3. 3
      Add vanilla or orange extract, if using, to the margarine mixture.
    4. 4
      Add flour mixture to margarine mixture and mix until combined.
    5. 5
      Using a tablespoon measure, spoon onto a very lightly greased cookie sheet.
    6. 6
      Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes until golden brown on the edges.
    7. 7
      This will make about 16 cookies (2" in diameter).
    8. 8
      You can drizzle with some melted chocolate after they have cooled for the extra flavor and visual effect.

      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!
