    Kristi Waterworth's Note:

    Based on: http://www.recipelink.com/mf/2/14009. Zaar wouldn't accept the following ingredient: glace cherry halves, (optional) I believe this to be very close to the original, but feel free to make suggestions for its improvement. :)

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 10

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      In an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until really fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well until blended.
    3. 3
      With mixer on low speed, add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix just until blended. Overmixing the dough will make it tough to squeeze through a pastry bag.
    4. 4
      Fill a pastry bag fitted with a large open star tip with the cookie dough. Pipe cookies onto parchment-lined cookie sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart. If desired, place a cherry half in the center of each cookie before baking.
    5. 5
      Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until edges begin to brown.
    6. 6
      Using a metal spatula, lift cookies off cookie sheet and onto wire cooling racks. Cool. Store in an airtight container.
    7. 7
      Note: For pink or green leaf cookies, tint the dough with a drop or two of red or green food coloring, and use a leaf tip to pipe the shapes. You can then dip the tips of the cookies into melted chocolate and let set on a wire rack.

      I love Italian butter cookies. They were a favorite of mine growing up and I have really missed them since going wheat free. Thankfully, I won't be missing them any more. In fact, I'm more likely to go into over dose mode. These are perfect cookies. Even the non-GF family couldn't stop eatting them. Thanks Kristi! Made for PAC Spring 2009

      These were fabulous in texture. Tasted like a biscuit. Definitely didn't taste gluten free. Mine tasted savory though...salty even. Maybe I put in more than the half tsp....Maybe next time I'll put in less salt, and more sugar. I scooped them with a cookie scooper, baked for 8 minutes and topped with butter cream icing. I also subbed more cornstarch as I didn't have arrowroot.

      This recipe is amazing. The cookie is perfectly buttery, very light, and not particularly sweet. There are a lot of flours to put together, but it is a bit less daunting if you know that 1/16 cup is 1 TBS. The time put into assembling the flours is definitely worth it on this cookie considering a great gluten-free cookie is incredibly hard to find. Thank you!
