Buckwheat Cookies

Naturally gluten-free cookies with a texture similar to shortbread (thanks to all the butter)! The flavor of these is hard to describe, other than buttery, but it’s good – all but 3 or so disappeared at work that day, and those survived only because I made clear I wanted a few to take home! Good thing we’ve got a freezer-full of more buckwheat flour for sale at work! 😉

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter (3 sticks), softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups of buckwheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or a silpat.

In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and butter.

Add the egg and beat together.

Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt until evenly mixed.

Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough (should’ve used my medium sized dough scoop, but did it with a spoon) and roll into balls. I got 30!

Arrange on the lined sheets, then gently press each dough ball to partially flatten.

Bake 6 minutes, rotate, and bake another 5-6 minutes, until just slightly golden at the base.

Cool 10 minutes on the pans, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

They may look a bit gray, but they taste great!
