Gluten Free Meltaway Cookies

My mother-in-law made several GF treats this Christmas, and I’m very excited to share them with you! These cookies were a tradition in my husband’s family for his whole life, so it was fun to see them on the GF cookie platter this year! They really do melt in your mouth.
