  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Stir until combined.
  3. Add the cassava flour, maple syrup, baking soda, and salt. Stir until a smooth dough forms. The dough should be moist but not sticky. If the dough seems too stiff, add a little water until the dough is soft and workable.
  4. Lightly flour a work surface with cassava flour. Roll the dough out using a rolling pin to about ¼-inch thickness.
  5. Use animal cookie cutters to cut shapes out of the dough and transfer the shapes to the baking sheets with a spatula. Re-roll the dough and continue to cut shapes until all the dough is used.
  6. Bake the animal crackers for 10-12 minutes. The edges of the cookies should be just starting to brown. Note: If using regular size cookie cutters (not mini animal cookie cutters), bake the crackers for closer to 14-15 minutes.
  7. Let the crackers cool completely before dipping them in the icing.
  8. To make the icing, combine the powdered sugar and milk in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Dunk each animal cracker upside down into the icing and place the iced animal cracker on a cooling rack. Let the icing set before storing or enjoying!
