Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white chocolate coating wafers melted
  • 1 cup green chocolate coating wafers melted
  • 1 cup red chocolate coating wafers melted

Method

In bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together oat flour, tapioca starch, sorghum flour, ground almonds, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 40 minutes.

Roll by 2 tbsp into balls. Arrange, 4 inches (10 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350?F (180?C) oven until golden,about 12 minutes. Let cool on pans for 3 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)

Spoon or pipe chocolate onto cookies as desired. Refrigerate until set, about 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: To melt coating chocolate, place one colour in each of three microwaveable bowls. Microwave on medium-high, stirring every 10 seconds, until smooth, about 40 seconds.
