1 1/2 cups white rice flour

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup sweet rice flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon lemon extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, cream cheese and granulated sugar for 1 minute. Use medium-high speed on a stand mixer and high speed on a handheld mixer.
