1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 & 1/4 cups gluten-free flour blend
1 tsp. x-gum

-beat in egg yolk and almond extract
-hand-stir in flour & x-gum until combined and forms ball of dough
-separate dough into parts, add separate food coloring to each part (i wanted 3 different colors, so i separated dough into 3 parts. made one green, one blue, one purple.)
-chill dough for 1 hour
-take 1/2 TBSP of each color of dough. roll each into a rope. combine ropes. twist into a pile. pile them high, because they flatten during baking.
-place cookies on UN-greased cookie sheets. bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes, depending on size of cookies.
