Superb Sugar Cookies

Who doesn’t love a sugar cookie? These gluten free delights are easily made dairy and soy free with the use of a coconut oil based shortening. A heavenly cookie – wonderful plain or decorated to your liking! – kids will be just as happy to make them as eat them!

Sugar Cookie RecipeTo Create! Recipe yields about a dozen cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. CREAM TOGETHER in a large bowl: ½ cup shortening (We use this one – it’s dairy-free, soy-free, and vegan) 1 ⅓ cup sugar 3 TBSP light-flavored oil (we use this one)
  3. ADD: 1 extra large egg (or 2 small eggs) 2 tsp vanilla extract
  4. Beat until creamy. Then ADD: 2 ½ cups Little Aussie GF Flour (get it here) 1 ½ tsp salt ¾ tsp baking powder ¾ tsp guar gum (this lends greater binding & elasticity to dough)
  5. Mix until well blended. Dough should be soft. >> If the dough seems stiff, add 1-2 TBSPs of water and mix.
  6. Use a teaspoon or cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This will make nice circular cookies. OR Roll the dough on a clean, floured surface (to keep the dough from sticking) to a ¼ inch thickness. Cut into shapes!  We use these cookie cutters to make star shapes.  They also come in flowers and hearts!
  7. Scoop or place cookies on a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with sugar or leave plain for decorating later with icing.
  8. Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges brown slightly. Remove and cool.

    This is very attention-grabbing, You’re an excessively professional blogger. I’ve joined your feed. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks

  4. I would love to make these for my daughter who needs gf, df, and corn free. The only ingredients I can’t find is the egg sub. I could use flaxseed, but can’t find a safe source. She can eat the Aussie flaxseed bread with no problem though. What brand of flaxseed do you all use?
