Total Time: 35-40 minutes  Makes: 50-75 cookies, depending on the size


1/3 cup non-hydrogenated shortening or coconut oil spread
1 3/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking soda
1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon organic vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
10 drops of flavored stevia of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine shortening and brown rice flour and beat well.
  3. Scrape down the sides and add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Once the dough comes together, continue to beat for 1 more minute to make it easier to handle. The dough will be very soft – refrigerate for 15 minutes before rolling the dough.
  5. Roll out the dough about 1/4″ thickness and cut with cutters.
  6. Top with sprinkles and bake. (Alternatively, bake and cool, then frost and decorate.)
  7. Bake 7-9 minutes until the edges just begin to brown. Cool on wire racks.

*To make frosting, blend xylitol in blender until powdered. Mix in almond or coconut milk a teaspoon at a time until frosting is consistency. (optional – add a few drops of vanilla or almond extract)
