Excellent gluten-free Sugar Cookies

Recommended Posts

I adapted this from an award winning old family recipe, and they turned out great!

Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies

1 cup shortening plus 2T butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

(mix the above ingredients until creamy)

Add:

1 egg plus one egg white

1 t vanilla

approx 1/2 t salt

1/2 t cream of tartar

1 t baking soda

2 t xanthum gum

2 cups of flour mix: I used 1 cup of superfine brown rice flour and 1 cup Grandma Ferdon's flour mix

Mix together and chill for an hour. Then roll in balls. Flatten out on baking sheet with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake until light brown (12-15 minutes) at 350 degrees. For Christmas, I sprinkled with red and green sugar after flattening.

The original recipe used regular flour and no xanthum gum. It also only used one egg, but mine seemed a little dry, so I added the egg white.

Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

You are awesome!! I have a VERY similar sugar cookie recipe that I tried to adapt the other day to be gluten free. They came out all crumbly, but tasted great! All the other recipes I have found have to be rolled out. I HATE rolling out cookie dough. I will try our your version of my favorite recipe and see how it tastes!!!!

Thanks,
