Masa Cookies, gluten and dairy free . . .

Simple, if you have the ingredients . . . Yummy, when you want something different . . . 
Snackish, if it is morning . . . And almost winter, lets turn our ovens on . . .
 These can be rolled, even iced if you want a healthy Christmas cookie . . . 
 The kids were thrilled to make "shape cookies" as they call them . . .
 Golden so fast it wasn't hard to wait . . .
 So here is the recipe . . .

Masa Cookies
Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a large bowl mix:
3 cups masa flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon guar gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cardamom 
1 cup brown sugar

Add and rub with your fingers until forms crumbs:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup grapeseed oil

Add:
2 eggs
1 cup almond or coconut milk

Roll out between sheets of parchment paper, oil if the dough sticks.
Cut into desired shapes and lay on oiled cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
