|Ingredients:||1/2 cup glutinous rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup potato flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1 scant cup confectioner’s sugar
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoons guar gum
11 tablespoons of unsalted butter, diced, cold
3 egg yolks
1-1/4 teaspoons almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Selection of preserves and marmalade for filling like blueberry, raspberry, fig, orange, apricot, strawberry, and ginger
|Directions:||Preheat oven to 400°F and line two cookie sheets with either parchment paper or silpats.
Combine all the dry ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on the lowest setting to combine. Add the diced unsalted butter and mix with the dry ingredients on the lowest setting until the mixture looks like damp sand. Add the egg yolks and the extracts and mix on high until the dough folds in on itself.
Using a 1-1/2 retractable ice cream scoop, spoon out the dough and roll into a ball. Repeat until all your dough is transformed. Place on your cookie sheets with an inch and a half in
between them, staggering the rows for a nice even bake.
Using your index finger, press an indention into each round. Then carefully fill each indentation with a variety of fillings. Fill just to the top of the cookies.
Bake for 7-10 minutes and the cookies have just taken on a hint of color.
