Christmas is my favorite time of the year, everyone who knows me, knows that, and one of my favorite things to make every year are Sugar Cookies. But now they aren’t just plain sugar cookies, they are Easy Gluten Free Sugar Cookies.
This recipe has been around for quite some time. I found it in our my grandmother’s cookbooks that have torn pages with recipes older than me. It is super simple, full of flavor and a great recipe to make with the kids.
What do you need for our Easy Gluten Free Sugar Cookies?
Gluten Free Flour: You definitely want a 1:1 baking blend. This gives a lighter crunchier cookie. We use Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 baking blend in this recipe with great results, as well as the homemade blend from my Homemade for The Holidays Cookbook, which you can get a copy here.
Butter or Dairy Free Substitute: I’ve made this recipe with butter and dairy free substitutes. Both give a delicious cookie.
Extracts: I love the flavor of these cookies because it is a mix of vanilla and almond essence. But if you’re not a big almond flavor fan, simply use only vanilla extract or add some lemon zest for a citrus based cookie. Unfortunately I haven’t tried these with egg substitute so I’m not sure how it would turn out, but if you do, please let us know!
The best part of this Easy Gluten free Sugar Cookie recipe is that it isn’t just for Christmas, but makes a great rolled cookie recipe for Easter, Spring or anytime of the year. Just add your favorite cookie icing and have fun!
