Easy Crispy Rice Flour Cookies - Great For Allergy Sufferers

For my son who is allergic to flour and eggs. They are crispy, but moist too. Good for small kids as they will melt in their mouths.

Ingredients

Margarine
60-70 g
Sugar
20-30 g
Rice flour (or Joshinko)
70 g
Cornstarch
30 g
(You can increase rice flour up to 100 g)
Vanilla essence (this makes richer taste)
few drops

Steps

1. Mix the margarine and sugar with a whisk in a bowl until it turns pale and mayonnaise-like consistency.
2. Add the rice flour and cornstarch and combine with a spatula to make crumble.
3. Bring the dough together using plastic wrap, and roll it out into about 3mm thick. Cut out shapes.
4. If it is difficult to cut out, try warming the dough in a microwave for few seconds at a time.
5. Place the cookies on the parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven at 160 °C for about 20 minutes. Let them cool on a wire wrack.
6. You can also use brown sugar instead of sugar.
7. For Anpanman cookies: Add the food colouring in some of the dough. Make the anpanman shapes and bake.
8. Once cooled, decorate with a chocolate decorating pen to make faces.
