Crispy Quinoa Cookies

My oldest daughter is a wonderful cook. Her vegetarian dishes are delightful. Since she came out to stay with us I have learned so much from her in so many ways including cooking! I thought it was suppose to be the other way around.

Our youngest daughter aspires to be a chef. She loves to help in the kitchen or create her own yummy dishes. The girls love to cook together and they do a great job.

For the last week the oldest had wanted to try a new cookie recipe for days and of course the youngest wanted to help! The outcome was these yummy cookies. Evidently I was not the only one who thought they were yummy because they were gone in flash!

I do need to warn you not to taste the batter otherwise you will not bake them and eat the dough! The cookies will be very delicate and crumbly. I think the next time we make them we will use brown rice flour rather than sweet white rice flour. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did. :0)
Happy eating!
