Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add flour; beat until crumbly. Shape dough into flattened round; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small bowl, toss cooked quinoa and 1 teaspoon oil to coat. Spread evenly in 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, stirring once, until quinoa is light golden brown and crisp. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 3 Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Unwrap dough. On lightly floured surface, roll dough 1/2-inch thick. Cut with 2 1/2-inch round cutter, rerolling dough as necessary. Place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
