  • ½ c. butter, softened
  • ¾ c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 c. all-purpose, gluten-free baking mix
  • ¾ c. almond flour


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Beat butter and sugar together in mixer until fluffy.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Sift in dry ingredients.
  • After thoroughly mixing the dough, knead to form a soft ball.
  • Wrap and chill the dough at least 30 minutes for easier handling.
  • Form the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sanding sugar (I like the larger sizr crystals).
  • Place on baking sheet and bake until bottoms are lightly browned, 10-15 minutes.
  • Cool on parchment.
  • To keep cookies fresh, store in tins or freeze.
