Gluten Free Almond Oatmeal Cookies

I got an e-mail for a recipe for Almond Oatmeal cookies. It looked so good and being that I am of Dutch descent it was even more enticing with the almond paste. So today I decided to try to make them gluten free. It worked! They are a wonderful almond flavored cookie. So here is my creation to share with you.

Dry Ingredients
2 1/2 Cups White Rice Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp xanthan gum
2 cups gluten free oats

Wet Ingredients
1 stick butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 free range organic eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla
7 oz Almond Paste

Icing1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend the wet ingredients together in a stand mixer. Mix together dry ingredients in another bowl. When ingredients are mixed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well blended. Spoon out onto a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet. Press the balls down a bit so that they are shaped like a flat but semi thick pancake. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges.

When cooled, drizzle the icing across the top of the cookies.

Those look wonderful and so great for fall. I, too, love almond paste, and I'm glad I found your gluten free blog.
