These are lighter than their gluten-laden friends, which means you can eat more! And the dough is so nice to work with. Rolls out beautifully!

Ingredients
Servings: dozen cookies
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of your food processor with regular mixing blade attached. Pulse a few times until the ingredients begin to come together and then run for one minute. Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer or hand mixer. I think the food processor gives a finer texture to the dough however.
  2. Remove dough from bowl and place in a sealed container. Refrigerate for about two hours. Longer is fine.
  3. When you're ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  4. Remove dough from refrigerator. Sprinkle arrowroot on counter and rolling pin. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut shapes.
  5. If you are painting your cookies with egg yolk paint or using sprinkles, add those decorations now before baking.
  6. Place cookies on parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. My husband actually likes these a little more crispy, which takes 13-14 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely before icing.
  7. Store in an airtight container. They keep fine at room temperature.
