Cherry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies - GF

1/2 c brown rice flour
1/2 c sweet rice flour
1/4 c tapioca flour
1/2 c potato starch
1 t cinnamon
1 t ground ginger
1/2 t ground all spice
1 t xanthan gum
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 c packed light brown sugar
2/3 c sugar
1 large egg
1 t vanilla extract
3 c gluten free oats
1 c dried cherries
1 c chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combined the brown rice flour, sweet rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt. Stir to fully combine.

Using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter and sugars. Then beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients to make a thick dough, stir in the oats, cherries and nuts just until combined.

Drop 1/4 cup full mounds onto the lined pans. Bake for 10-12 minutes (they will seem a little under done). Let cool on the pan for 5 more minutes (they cook a bit more here). Transfer to wire racks and let cool completely.  

Time: 60 minutes

Makes: 2 dozen

These are delicious. The original recipe can be found at:
