gluten-free Almond butter jelly cookies

I love almond butter jelly sandwiches…. so why not make them into a cookie!!! You can make peanut butter cookies if you want by replacing the almond butter with peanut butter. I cannot digest peanut butter so this works for me:). This recipe also makes regular almond/peanut butter cookies just omit last step.


1 1/2 cups rice flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened

* 1/2 cup almond/peanut butter

* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 large eggs
* jam to top cookie

combine rice flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.

Beat butter, almond/peanut butter,  granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until light. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually add rice flour mixture. refrigerate for 1 hour.

Take out of the fridge and roll into balls, roll balls in sugar (optional) then place on a baking sheet.

(for almond butter cookies I like to make the fork impressions)

bake at 350 for about 5 minutes then press the cookie with a spoon and add jam. Bake for about 5 more minutes.

Allow to cool and enjoy!!!
