7 Layer Gluten-Free Strawberry and Sumac Cookies

Since its strawberry season, I wondered how I could incorporate one of my favorite fruit into the old-fashioned cookie series that I have been posting this past week. Growing up in the Middle East, we used sumac in almost everything because of its tangy flavor, so I felt it was a nice addition to this traditional recipe. It would be a nice compliment to the strawberries. If you have not used sumac before, it is a ground, dried berry with a flavor similar to lemon. In this particular recipe, it really brought out the citrus taste of fresh fruit, which I loved.
