Maple Sandies

These maple sandies are easy to make and so good!  You would never guess that they are gluten free or vegan.  I use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all purpose baking flour and it works just as well as regular flour, and I use coconut oil instead of butter to make a delicious buttery cookie!  These smell amazing while baking, with the aromas of maple and vanilla and are the perfect treat to bake in the fall!
