    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    3 cups gluten-free flour mix*
    2 eggs

    1 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon almond (or flavoring of your choice)
    1 cup gluten-free margarine

    Sift flour, soda & cream of tartar - cut in margarine or butter (I find that margarine is easier when rolling out the cookies). Beat eggs, add sugar & almond - mix well. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture and mix well by hand.

    Chill at least 15 min (several days is also ok). Roll out to desired thickness on floured surface and cut into shapes. Decorate with colored sugar, or if you prefer, after baked & cooled frost and then sprinkle with colored sugar, etc.

    2 cups powdered sugar mixed with some melted butter & lemon juice frosts one batch. Bake at 350F for 9 minutes.

    I made the Christmas sugar cookie. They stuck to the pan and were all crumbs. Is there something missing in the recipe?

    I found that Bette Hagman's gluten-free flour mix works better it tastes better they taste closer to the 'real thing' that is 2 parts white rice flour 2/3 parts potato startch 1/3 part tapioca flour and don't forget the xantham gum. I didn't see it in the recipe 1 1/2 teaspoons will do it it will keep them together.

    Nailed it!!!! These are perfect for the holiday party today. I had to make some adjustments to the recipe because of food allergies and I didn't have Tartar. Here are my changes:

    Egg = egg replacer

    Tartar = doubled the baking soda instead

    Butter = Shortening + butter flavor

    Flour mix = Bobs Red Mill Gluten-Free Baking Mix (Yeah Bob!!)

     

    I pressed the dough into a fat disc and chilled for about an hour. Then I rolled it between sheets of plastic. Also, I ALWAYS use parchment for baking - no stick, no mess.

     

    I'm so Happy!

    I've made these for my grand daughter for Christmas and Valentine's Day and she just loves them!! They are hard to roll out, so I pat them out on gluten free flour then press the cookie cutter in and take off with a spatula.

    I am really happy that this website exists, I was born with celiac disease, and when I was a baby I almost died because of it. And not being able to eat like other people can be irritating. I mean I know that everyone around you isn't gonna stop eating gluten just 'cause I can't have it, I know that VERY well; I'm just glad I can have something just as good and possibly better.

    Hi Sharon, sounds like you've got to grips with this recipe so can you tell me what it means by soda, is it bicarb of soda? Thank You Charlotte

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    In the celiac world, there remains a long-standing controversy over whether to exclude oats and oat products from the list of "safe" gluten-free grains.  When I was diagnosed with celiac disease, standard protocol recommended against including oats in a gluten-free diet, but more recent studies show that oats themselves are likely not the source of a celiac reaction.  Instead, researchers now believe that the fact that milled oats are often contaminated with other gluten-containing grains has skewed diagnostic testing of reactions to gluten from oat products.
    The most recent scientific statements on the inclusion of a reasonable amount of oats (1 ...

    Ever since my husband diagnose with celiac disease, he was a littlebit depressed because he could not just simple go and grab something toeat. At the beginning, he tried to keep an open mind and went to storesthat sell gluten-free products. Most of the time, he was disappointedwith the taste of the products. One day, he came home from work andtold me how his co-workers teased him with a yummy looking chocolatechips cookie and he felt extremely depressed because he could not eatthem and he absolutely LOVES to snack. I found his co-workers' actionvery childish and decided that I would create a recipe the my husbandwould love and he could has plenty of supply a...
