You will need:
- 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

- In a separate large bowl, beat the butter until it is creamy.
- Gradually add the powdered sugar to the butter, beating until it is well combined.
- Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing until a dough forms.
- Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
- Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass, then prick the tops with a fork.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Make sure to use gluten-free flour that already contains xanthan gum, which helps to bind the ingredients together. If your flour doesn't contain it, add 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum to the flour mixture.
