  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add egg and extracts and beat until evenly combined.
  • In another small bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan, baking powder and salt. Add to the butter/sugar mixture and beat until it comes together in large clumps.
  • Turn dough out onto a square of parchment and knead together (using your hands) until a nice smooth ball of dough froms. It should only take a couple of turns. Cover dough with another sheet of parchment and roll out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.
