Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies Recipe

Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies Recipe

Sugar cookies are one of my favorite holiday treats to bake. While I love my classic rolled sugar cookie recipe, I also recently experimented with a dairy-free version using coconut oil in place of the butter. Because I am hosting a Thanksgiving party in a few days for my homeschooling groups, I recently came up with a gluten-free version to accommodate the children in my groups who do not eat gluten.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cream together the sugar and butter.
  2. Add the vanilla, egg, and milk.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the flours.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.
  5. Sprinkle water on the mixture until a dough ball forms. The dough should be not too wet but not too dry.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  7. Roll the sugar cookie dough into one-inch balls.
  8. Flatten the dough balls.
  9. Cut the dough using cookie cutters.
  10. Place the cookies on an ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  11. Sprinkle the unbaked cookies with colored sugar.
  12. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden.
  13. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
  14. Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly.
  15. Store the gluten-free cookies in an airtight container.
