This cookie dough is simple and delicious. It took some time to perfect the texture, I admit. But this has been my go to cookie dough for some time now. These cookies have received rave reviews. The cookies actually need no embellishment; they’re terrific on their own. But if budding little artists abound at your home, feel free to decorate. The simplest way of course is to melt some high-quality chocolate and drizzle over the cookies. Or, go to town and arrange different colored sprinkles, an array of colorful icings and a whole lot of palette knives on your counter for your kids to have their pick.
- potato starch - 3/4 cup
- brown rice flour - 3/4 cup
- sweet rice flour - 1/2 cup
- tapioca flour - 1/2 cup
- xanthan gum - 1 tbsp

. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
2. In a bowl, stir together the potato starch, brown rice and sweet rice and tapicoa flours, xanthan gum and salt. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat margarine and sugar together for 2 minutes or until somewhat combined. Add the egg and vanilla; mix for 1 minute.
4. Add the dry ingredients, mixing until well blended. If the dough is sticky, flour the baking surface and rolling pin with some sweet rice flour.
5. Divide the dough in half. Roll the dough, one piece at a time, between two pieces of parchment paper until ¼-inch thick.
6. Using Chanukah cookie cutters (or working freehand), cut out desired shapes. Transfer to prepared baking sheets.
