    Gluten-Free Vanilla Wafers
    Caption: Gluten-Free Vanilla Wafers

    These little gems make a delicious, hard-to-resist treat, but are also great as crusts for mini-cheesecakes and other desserts!

    Ingredients:
    ½ cup butter or non-dairyalternative (e.g. Earth BalanceButtery Sticks), room temperature
    1 cup granulated cane sugar
    1/8 tsp. salt
    1 large egg white
    1 Tbs. gluten-free vanilla extract
    1 Tbs. vanilla milk (dairy ornon-dairy)
    1 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
    1 1/3 cup + 1 Tbs. Jules Gluten FreeAll Purpose Flour

    Directions:
    Beat together the butter, sugar andsalt until light and fluffy. Add in egg white, vanilla and milk. Slowly beat to incorporate the flour and baking powder, mixing untiltotally combined.

    Refrigerate until cold for slightlythicker cookies, or bake immediately.

    Preheat oven to 350F (static) or 325F(convection).

    Scoop dough into a piping bag or other freezer weight plastic bag with a small corner cut out. Evenly squeeze buttons of dough out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, formingrounds approximately ¾-inch wide, spaced 1/2 inch apart.

    Bake for approximately 10-14 minutes,or until edges are lightly browned.

    Yield: 7 dozen cookies.

    I followed this recipe exactly, and was very unsatisfied with the taste. The cookies came out very bitter with an unusual aftertaste.

    Very good cookies! Superior to store purchased gluten vanilla wafers! Remove cookies from the oven just as the edges are brown. I refrigerated the dough in the bag between batches. I made these for my celiac sister and she loved them, as did I.

    I made these tonight and they came out perfect! Thanks for a great recipe. I used my own flour mix, 1/2 tsp xanthan gum and two egg whites.

     

    I used a stand mixer and beat the egg whites with the sugar, butter, etc. until it started to thicken like a meringue and then added my flour and mixed it on medium high until it got a little bit sticky.

     

    Those were the easiest cookies to make. Easy to prepare the dough, easy putting them on the cookie sheet and easy clean up! Pop the dough into a baggie and squeeze out half dollar sized cookies, bake at 350 for 10 minutes and they are perfect.
