Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. white rice flour
  • 1/2 c. potato starch
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 2 Tb. sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
In the bowl of your mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.  Add the egg and vanilla and beat several minutes until light and fluffy.  In a smaller bowl, combine the flour, starch, salt, cream of tartar, baking soda, and xanthan gum.  Add these dry ingredients to the mixing bowl.  Combine on low speed until moistened then beat on medium speed about 30 seconds more.

In a very small bowl, combine the 2 Tb. sugar and the cinnamon.  Roll the dough into balls approximately 1 1/4 inches in diameter.  Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar.  Place them on a greased cookie sheet about 2 – 3 inches apart.  Using parchment paper or a silicone mat works well.

Wipe and regrease the paper/mat/cookie sheet between batches to help them spread evenly.  Bake at 350 degrees about 10 minutes.  Move them to a wire rack to cool.
