  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons of Silvana's All-Purpose Flour (or a gluten-free flour mix from the grocery store)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-vegetable shortening, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature

  • Cooking Directions

    Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
