Sugar Cookies (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Lucy Shriver at the Gluten Free Kitchen.

1 ½ cups brown rice flour
½ cup tapioca starch
½ Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Sugar
½ Cup Butter, Softened
2 Eggs, beaten

In a medium size bowl, mix brown rice flour, tapioca starch, salt, and baking powder. Blend well and set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream Butter, and slowly add sugar and cream until light and fluffy. Add the two beaten Eggs and Vanilla and blend again. Add Flour mixture and mix until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl. Place cookie dough in waxed paper ( I rolled it like a log) and chill in the refrigerator for several hours. When the dough is chilled, you can either cut it with cookie cutters or slice it to make round cookies.

Bake on an un-greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees. I have found that with gluten free cookies, it is better to let them cool first, before taking off of the cookie sheet. This reduces crumbling. I also use a spatula, to remove the cookies from the pan.

I made Witch Hats out of mine. I cut into a round cookie shape. (used a knife and cut about a ½ inch of dough and placed on cookie sheet). When cookies are done, let cool, and then remove from pan with spatula. Spread your favorite gluten-free chocolate frosting on each cookie, place a Hersheys kiss in the middle and then with a orange colored frosting, you can decorate around the base of the Hersheys kiss, to make it resemble a hat band. If you need a icing recipe, please e-mail me and I will be happy to mail them. ( I use a butter cream icing.).

The recipes looked interesting but for some reason I could not print them.

It doesn't say how long to bake the cookies.

This recipe is delicious! I was so surprised. I used white rice flour instead of brown rice flour and it turned out great, no gooey textures. Also, you can replace butter for oil, and you can use less sugar for a healthier option. Cookies are still sweet and delicious!

Great so they are safe! Good because I bought a bag and jab been suffering with a sore throat so this will definitely soothe it. Thanks!

Hi Louie, Welcome to the forum! It's true, you probably are doing the gluten-free diet wrong. The gluten-free diet is a huge change for many people, and it can take sometime to learn it and how to avoid all the places gluten can hide in foods. Really I consider the first 6 months a be...

No that's a really good point mate. I'll amend my post also. Thanks for pointing it out

Just needed to point this out while it seems the UK and perhaps even Canada they are. The US McDonalds has wheat in the fries. Second thought in the US you have to a take more careful with CC and chains, the kids go in and out of these like crazy and think gluten free is a kind of fad. I would ...

I hope I'll be fine too.
