"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
2 cups all purpose gluten free flour (I recommend Glutino Gluten Free Pantry All-Purpose Flour. GF flours that are bean based do not work well with this recipe)

3/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup fine granulated sugar

4 tablespoons powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)

8 tablespoons unsalted butter (this should be at room temperature)

1 teaspoon xanthan gum- If your flour blend already contains xanthan or guar gum then do not add.

1 large egg, beaten (this should be at room temperature)

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350į.
1. Mix all the dry ingredients and blend until well combined. Add egg, butter and vanilla and stir until dough is well blended and thick.
2.Take large amount of dough and shape and work into dough with your hands and form dough into a ball. Roll out your dough onto parchment paper and roll until dough is about 1/3 of an inch thick.
3. Use a cookie cutter cut out dough and place them onto cookie sheet covered with parchment paper leaving about 1 inch between cookies. I dusted some sugar on top at this point for the ones I didnít plan to frost.
4.Reform and roll out scrap dough. Cut out more cookies into desired shapes.
5.Bake for about 9-11 minutes until set. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet until set then transfer onto a cooling rack, approximately five minutes.
Edges may be slightly golden brown. Once cooled these can be frosted with fun colors or for the holidays! Store in an airtight container and enjoy!

These make delicious sugar cookies that people can't tell are GF! AND I find that they keep shape better than most regular sugar cookie recipes.
