1 tablespoon baking powder

½ tablespoon baking soda

1 egg

In a small bowl add almond and rice flour, baking powder and baking soda, reserve

In a medium bowl add the egg and using a hand mixer beat until the mixture becomes fluffy and almost triples in volume, 2-3minutes

Add the melted butter and vanilla, beat until well combined, 1-2 minutes

Slowly add the flour mixture to the eggs, sugar and butter mixture (step 1 plus step 2)

And mix using either a hand mixer on low speed or your hands until just combined

 

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 

Transfer the dough to a work surface and divide into small portions

Using cookies cutters, cut out inspired shapes from the dough 

Gather up and reroll the scraps and cut more cookies

Repeat it until dough is all shaped

Lightly grease cookie sheets with coconut oil

Arrange the shapes on baking sheets, spacing them about ½ inch apart

Bake the cookies until golden on the edge, 8-12 minutes (depends on the cookies cutters sizes)

 

Step 6

Decorate the cooled cookies as desired or just enjoy it plain

 

Tip: you can add a little bit of cocoa powder or shredded coconut in part of the dough to make the cookies more fun and delicious
