Gluten-Free Swedish Tea Cakes

Posted on Dec 16, 2014

We made these little beauties at a recent Christmas baking party . . . and man, oh man . . . they were DELICIOUS!!! I never thought I’d be able to eat these again since going gluten-free, but these were every bit as good as the gluten-filled variety!



Gluten-Free Swedish Tea Cakes

1 cup butter + 3 tbsp. (nobody said these treats were good for you . . . simply gluten-free)

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Baking Flour (not to be confused with Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Flour)

1 cup finely chopped pecans

Cream butter and sugar well. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and nuts. Slowly add to butter, sugar, and vanilla. Form 1″ balls. Bake at 350° for ten minutes (they will not turn brown). Carefully remove from cookie sheet and roll in powdered sugar. After the cookies are completely cooled, roll in the powdered sugar one more time. Eat . . . then exercise. 🙂
