Gluten Free Lemon Cookies

For all those cookies lovers who can’t have gluten this is a refreshing lemony cookie great with afternoon coffee or tea. This recipe does use a baking mix, because the baking mix has leavening in it and salt do not add extra of either. Make sure and use unsalted butter.

1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup  unsalted butter
2 egg yolks

Beat well then add

1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
3 cups Pamelas baking mix

Mix together well, drop heaping teaspoon onto lined baking pan, bake at 375 for approx 12 minutes until edges are browned.  Cool before removing, cookies are very tender when hot.

One of these cookies topped with homemade ice cream and sweetened blackberries is a great summer dessert.
