Celebrate Chinese New Year with Jonathan’s scrumptious gluten free almond cookies!
Preheat oven to 350F / 175C
In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir together the almond meal, rice flour, and baking powder. Add in the maple syrup, whole egg, and salt. Mix with a spatula until fully combined.
Line a baking sheet with parchment. Using a 2 tbsp scoop, scoop 8 balls 9about the size of gold balls) onto the baking sheet. Flatten them out slightly using the bottom of a glass. Press in 1 whole almond into the center of each cookie.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the yolk and 1 tbsp water until smooth. Brush the each cookie with the egg wash and place in the oven. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
