2- Cook the pineapple on high heat, add sugar, maltose and butter, keep stirring with a wooden spoon, until the juice reduced to 1/4
3- Toast the rice flour in the oven for 10-15min, add to the pineapple jam, stir for 5 min so it doesn't taste like raw flour

5- Dust flour on a cookie cutter, place the filled cookie dough inside press the top lightly for a flat top, remove gentaly, place on a baking sheet
6- Leave about 2 fingers space in between each cookie, because they will get bigger when they bake
7- Bake 350'F for 30min, cool on rack when it comes out the oven, store in air tight container


5- Push each rolled balls into a 24 mini muffin tin, ungreased and without cupcake paper
