Sorry guys that it took so long. Long night at work and I had a field trip this morning with my 4 year old to the local pumpkin patch. Anyway, I do not claim that this is my recipe. I do believe I found it here on this site somewhere, but failed to find the link. Thank goodness I printed it off so here it is drum roll please...... :lol:

Original recipe as I copied it off of this site:

Soft Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

4 cups gluten free flour (I use this mix: 1 cup cornstarch, 1 cup tapioca flour, 1 cup rice flour, 1 TBSP potato flour)

3 teaspoons guar/xanthan gum

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup sour cream

Directions

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, vanilla and sour cream until well blended. Stir in the sifted ingredients. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I got this recipe from allrecipes. com years ago, and it became "my" sugar cookie recipe. I modified it to take it gluten free. The cookies are incredibly soft, so much so that they even take a little longer to dry out than most gluten free cookies. I hope it works well for you.

Now with all of that typed I will tell you what changes I made to this recipe. I used better batter flour, thus eliminitating the need for the guar/xanthan gum and I increased the eggs to 2. I also like a thicker cookie so I rolled them out a little thicker and baked accordingly. I also found it was easier to bake them on parchment paper. If the original person who brought this recipe to me is here THANKS a bunch! These cookies are awesome and everyone who has eaten them loves them.

O.K. After some digging I found the link. Initally I guess I used Tom Sawyers flour (I had tried both Tom Sawyer and Better Batter with Better Batter winning out in the end). Any way there are other recipes in this link too. Thanks to JennyC for the great recipe!! :)

Last week I made some cut-out sugar cookies with my son for my DH who has celiac disease. I got this recipe from Shauna Ahren's website, the "Gluten-Free Girl" and they were OUTSTANDING!!! My husband LOVED them and I could never have told you they were gluten-free just from tasting them. Enjoy!

2 1/2 cups of your favorite gluten-free flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 1/2 teaspoons of xanthan gum (omit if your gluten-free flour mix already contains this)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine

1/2 cup butter

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla - make sure it's gluten-free. Use only pure vanilla, please (I used extract).

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (I omitted this).

After you have preheated the oven to 350

Since you liked yours so much - what was the brand of flour you used?

It was Grandma Ferdon's Flour Mix. I use that in all my baking. The cookies were nice and light, not hard like you're sort of used to with store-bought cookies. We just loved them!

Good luck! I hope you like them as much as we do!
