i haven't tried it but it looks easy - it's on the land o lakes website and i can't get the link to copy for some reason.  just google 'gluten free sugar cookie recipe' and it should come right up :)  supposedly you can roll these out and cut with cookie cutters.  and it doesn't have a bunch of ingredients you wouldn't have on hand <which is what i like.  one of the recipes i googled had oat flour in it and i can't have that (yet or maybe never)  and some had a bunch of (1 tsp coconut milk - now, what do you do with the rest of it - drives me crazy)  so this is just eggs, flour, sugar, butter, etc - of course you have to use a flour blend but that isn't too hard  :) oh, and you can also refrigerate it if you want to mix the dough ahead of time.

 

ahemmmm!  i'm sure *other people* have some good recipes that they have actually tried  - !!  helloooooo??  other people??  :huh:

I'm hoping that Loves to Travel answers this one!  

 

I haven't made sugar cookies since I've been gluten-free.  The Land O Lakes recipe looks  fine.  Find an all purpose flour that has rice as the main flour.  Don't use Bob's Red Mill as it has garbanzo bean flour that would be too overpowering for sugar cookies.  Chill the dough to allow the flours, eggs, etc, to blend, but set it out to warm up a bit before rolling.  Xantham Gum is expensive, but it lasts for a long time in the freezer.  Be sure to roll the dough out between plastic wrap (my advice) and make sure your rolling surface is gluten-free (I had to toss my old rolling board :().  Finally, bake on parchment paper.  gluten-free dough tends to stick to the pan despite greasing (they sell it at Costco at a great price and I line everything with parchment paper).

 

When's the party?  Humm.....I wouldn't mind experimenting!

thanks so much for your tips and recipes!  i am super new to gluten-free baking and i want to "wow" the class so they allow me to keep doing this for parties.  i figure if the kids don't notice the cookies are gluten-free it will be a huge win! i am going to start experimenting this weekend and will let you know how it goes ;)

Hey, don't forget other gluten-free goodies that kids love.  Just purchase those little clear cocktail cups at the grocery store and fill with:

 

  • Dirt Cups:  Chocolate pudding, gluten-free Trader Joe's cookies crushed and gummy worms
  • Cubed Jello and Whipped Cream, Sprinked with gluten-free candy
  • Layered Jello Cups
  • Banana Split Cups with Pudding
  • Yogurt Parfaits

 

There are endless recipes.  Google some recipes.  I made several of these for my daughter's school parties.  The kids loved them.  They get tired of cookies and cupcakes. (What am I saying?  Who could get tired of those!)  Just put candy on ANYTHING and the kids will love it!

 

I usually asked the teacher when the party was to start and I'd load them on to cardboard box lids and placed them into a cooler for transport.  When my daughter got older (4th grade) her teacher wasn't into parties (he still allowed for them) and he didn't like the disruption, so I just put them on everyone's desk, with a spoon and cute napkin while they were at recess.
