Recently on one of my forays into various lolly shops looking for inspiration, I found these gluten free buttons. I only used a few in the biscuit mix, so have heaps left over for something else (or let’s be honest, maybe just eating). I am a big fan of the melt and mix method for quick and easy baking.
I got about 24 from the mixture.
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 & 1/2 cups gluten free SR flour
1/2 cup red, green and white buttons
Preheat a fan forced oven to 160 celcius, 180 if not fan forced.
Melt butter in the microwave in a microwave safe mixing bowl, then add the sugar and beat well. When cooled a little, add the egg and vanilla, followed by the flour and buttons. Roll into small balls, and place on trays, leaving room for each ball to spread. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on cake cooler.
