My own recipe - and my first gluten-free creation. I love them! You might want to add more sugar - I don't like things too sweet. I also use more spices.

This was really great! I took these to a family brunch and a bunch of my relatives didn't even realize they were gluten free. I altered the recipe a little though: When I finished making the dough, it tasted a little bitter, so I added about a half cup of apple sauce and enough rice flour to make the dough unsticky or just more like sugar cookie dough. Also, for the frosting, I mixed milk, powdered sugar, milk powder, and maple flavoring. I added some food coloring, and decorated the men with chocolate turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
