Serve these delightful little cookies with Hot Mulled Cider or spice tea on a chilly winter afternoon. You can make a cookie glaze if you wish by mixing powdered coconut sugar with a very small amount of non-dairy milk or water and a dash of vanilla. I use palm shortening in these cookies but organic unsalted butter would also work. I use Authentic Foods Superfine Flours, which are essential for making these cookies. You can order the Superfine Brown Rice Flour here and the Superfine Sweet Rice Flour here.
