I'm not big on Christmas baking, but this has become a yearly tradition since our girls were young. They had a great time rolling, cutting and decorating these melt-in-your-mouth cookies. And they're soooo easy, only four ingredients.
Cream 1 lb. butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup rice flour
3 cups all purpose flour
Mix together by hand. Roll into a ball and flatten with rolling pin. Use cookie cutter. Make depth ¼ inch. Decorate with sprinkles. Bake at 325 F for 40 minutes: should still be a pale colour.
This recipe can be halved or doubled as needed.
