Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

Yes, you read that right πŸ™‚ If you’re gluten free you can still enjoy sugar cookies… and really good sugar cookies! I made these for the first time this year and they were a hit. Those who didn’t know they were gluten free couldn’t tell and those that were looking forward to enjoying a gluten free cookie were pleasantly surprised.

These are the real deal so if you are gluten free and missing sugar cookies in your life… that ends today πŸ™‚ So… let’s make some!

In your mixer, drop in 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup of sugar. Cream together.

Just a few minutes will do…

Next tuck a couple eggs in there and mix them around until blended.

Pour in a teaspoon of your favorite vanilla πŸ™‚

and 1/2 teaspoon of salt…

When you are ready to bake line a few baking sheets with parchment paper and crank your oven to 350. Tear off some extra parchment paper and dust it with more of the gf baking mix or other gf flour.

Grab a hunk of dough and dip your hands in the flour to keep it from sticking to you. Work the dough in your hands a big and then plop it onto the parchment and roll out. Add as much extra flour as needed to keep it from stick to rolling pin. It will come up off the parchment pretty easily. If it sticks a bit use an offset spatula to help it up after cutting your shapes.

Place on parchment lined sheets and bake until edges are JUST starting to turn golden brown. You don’t want these to burn but you don’t want them too undercooked either. It might take you a batch or 2 to get the hang of but stick with it!

Because these are sooooo worth it. I hadn’t had sugar cookies for 2 years before I made these. I won’t tell you how many I ate in the first 10 minutes πŸ™‚ Keep them refrigerated or frozen until you are ready to decorate and then back in the fridge or freezer until you plan to serve them. Enjoy!!!!
