Gluten-Free Kichel (Egg Cookies)

Although not made into the traditional bow-tie shape, these gluten-free kichel are pretty close to the originals found here: Bow Ties/ Egg Kichel .  The secret to kichel is the eggy dough which causes the baking dough to puff up in the oven, In this dough there are 8 whites and 3 whole eggs. The flour I use for these cookies is Bob's Red Mill gluten-free biscuit mix, which can be found in many grocery stores or purchased on-line. Although there are a few gluten free kichel products on the market, this is so easy to make and so superior, it makes no sense to buy the packaged product. This cookie is easy to mix, roll out and cut. There is no resting period. Although the recipe is gluten free, it is not vegan or fat free. This cookie is NOT kosher for Passover. Yield: approximately 120 small cookies. Equipment:   mixing spoons, measuring cups electric mixer flat surface to roll out dough, rolling pin waxed paper baking parchment paper 2 cookie sheets  flexible scra
