Christmas biscuits (cookies) – gluten free

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.

Christmas biscuits (cookies) – gluten free


125g butter

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.
