Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the butter and sugar until completely combined. Add the egg and mix well. Stir in the flour and mix until throughly combined.

Notes

These came out a little harder than I would have liked. Need to find a way to make them flatten out a little more when they are cooking.

Version 2

  • 3/4 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups barley flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar, then add the egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly.

Add the barley flour and baking soda, and continue mixing until the mixture forms a dough.

Drop spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are browned. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack lined with paper towels to cool thoroughly.
