Gluten Free Italian Wedding Cookies

Some of you have asked for a gluten free Italian wedding cookie recipe. I know processed sugar is clearly unhealthy. But sometimes on special occasions, we can indulge just a little.

For an easier option, I have used confectioner’s sugar. But you can make this recipe slightly healthier by making your own gluten free confectioner’s sugar using coconut or turbinado sugar. Gluten Free confectioner’s sugar recipe below
