Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

This is my sister-in-law’s recipe. I tweaked it a little (like a do with all recipes). I added the almond extract because the cookies tasted a little bland. They are a little crumbly when you eat them, so far warning if you have a small child enjoying them, it might get a little messy. These are super tasty cookies that everyone loves. People have a hard time believing they are Gluten-Free. Enjoy!
