Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies


Description

Soft and chewy, Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies are delightful throughout the year!


Ingredients

Scale

Ingredients for Sugar Cookies:

  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups gluten-free almond blend flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Xanthan gum

Ingredients for Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Food coloring, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Add in egg, cream and vanilla, mixing well.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sea salt and Xanthan gum. Add to cream mixture and mix well. Form dough in a round disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate dough at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Between two sheets of parchment paper, roll out dough in a small quantity, until very thin (1/8th inch). Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Cut cookies out with small cookie cutters. Bake for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool for two minutes before removing to cooling rack.  Cool completely before icing with the sugar cookie glaze.

Instructions for Glaze:

  • In a medium size bowl, sift sugar. Stir in milk and vanilla until thoroughly blended.
  • Add food coloring in one drop at a time, until desired color is achieved.
  • For a thinner glaze, add ½ teaspoon of milk at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  • “Paint” glaze on with a pastry brush.


Notes

  • When rolling out dough, work with small quantities. Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to use.
  • In a hurry? Sprinkle with colored sugar before baking.
  •  Use a butter knife to gently transfer the cookies to a parchment lined cookie sheet for baking.
  • A small glass is also perfect for cutting out cookies.
