Persian Rice Cookie (Nan e Berenji) / Gluten Free Cookies | Easy Cookies Recipe

Even though healthy cookies are typically whole wheat without maida, wheat also has gluten. Today many people was even gluten free and there is good demand for gluten free cookies. Our own rice is gluten free. In Persia, there is a rice cookie made from rice flour. I immediately tried it and it came out really well. Try this cookie for sure.
