Gluten Free Halloween Sugar Cookies!
Who doesn’t love a good sugar cookie? The holidays are approaching and there is nothing more comforting than a sugar cookie in my opinion! David is gluten free, so I make mine without flour! These are delicious! I even dare to say you can’t tell they are gluten free! Cheers!
2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 egg at room temperature, beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat Your Oven To 350 Degrees.
In a large bowl, place the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar and confectioners’ sugar and whisk to combine well. Add the butter, egg and vanilla, and mix to combine. Squeeze with your hands to soften if it is too stiff… Also, that’s what’s she said.
Roll the dough between two sheets of unbleached parchment paper into a round a bit less than 1/3-inch thick. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out rounds of dough and place them about 1-inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 6-8 minutes or until brown around edges. Take out of oven and transfer to cooling rack.
These are the best gluten free cookies around (in my humble opinion). Give them a try!
