Crisp and buttery tasting, these gluten free pressed cookies are going to be a staple for so many occasions - make fun shapes for children's parties, flower shapes for bridal showers, wreaths and trees for Christmas or hearts for Valentine's Day!

I won't lie, these do take more time than I usually spend on making cookies - but they are so fun and taste yummy!  They are great to make in a single shape (like these hearts) and tuck into containers and combined 

with quick drop cookies to add a pop of color!  They are perfect for wedding and shower favors.

1 cup of butter

1/2 cup of sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp of almond or vanilla extract (flavoring) 

2 1/4 cups of gluten free Cup 4 Cup flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix butter, sugar, egg, salt and flavoring thoroughly.  Measure flour and sift (stir with a whisk to incorporate some air.) 

Work flour into the butter/sugar mixture. Divide into parts and press into desired shapes thru a cookie press, directly onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 6-9 minutes, or until set but NOT brown.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

These cookies are so fun to use as party favors, or thank you gifts at events.  I LOVED these little heart boxes so much I had to add them to my shop :)
