Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

  • Sugar (1 cup)
  • Softened butter (1/2 cup)
  • Large egg (1 piece)
  • Water (1 tablespoon)
  • Vanilla (1 1/2 teaspoon)
  • Salt (1/4 teaspoon)
  • Cinnamon (1/4 teaspoon)
  • Xanthan gum (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Gluten-free all-purpose flour (1/2 teaspoon; alternative for xanthan gum)
  • Gluten-free all-purpose flour (2 cups; for rolling and flouring purposes)

Instructions

  1. Use a mixer and mix the butter and sugar at a medium-speed setting.
  2. 2. When the ingredients are mixed properly, you can already add the salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and egg. Blend the mixture properly at the same speed.
  3. 3. After this, you can either add the xanthan gum or the flour. Both of them works, so you don't have to worry about anything. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low so that you can combine the ingredients properly.
  4. 3. Once done, put the bowl of the mixture inside your refrigerator. Make sure that you will cover it with a plastic cellophane. Let is be refrigerated for one to two hours. The mixture will become the dough that you will work on.
  5. 4. Ready your oven. Preheat the device to around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the ideal baking temperature for cookies. You should also start lining a baking sheet and parchment paper. Set them aside for awhile.
  6. 5. Take the dough from the refrigerator. Roll it on a surface that has been lightly floured with the gluten-free all-purpose flour. Roll properly until the flour covers the dough.
  7. 6. Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough to your preferred shape and size. Afterwards arranged them on the baking sheet you prepared. When arranging, ensure that the dough will not touch each other.
  8. 7. Put the baking sheet inside the oven and let the dough be baked for 10 minutes or until they become cookies. Remove the tray from the oven once you are done baking. Let the cookies be cooled for around 5 minutes before you place them on your cooling rack. If you have icing and other food decorations, use them to decorate your sugar cookies!

Conclusion

Always take note that not all gluten-free flours that you see on the market have the same quality. Therefore, you should research which flour can give you tasty and satisfactory cookies.

Also, don’t forget that you need to refrigerate the dough. That is a must. Otherwise, the dough will get too sticky, and it would make the rolling process more difficult.

Other than these reminders, there are no other things that you should worry. You should be able to create these delectable cookies for your family and friends successfully. Enjoy baking!
