Christmas Cutout Cookies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi -

Does anyone either have a good recipe or know of a mix for a sugar cookie? I did a forum search and found someone recommending a recipe using Betty Crocker's yellow cake mix for sugar cookies which sounds great because it's easy, but was worried it wouldn't stand up to the whole rolling out and cookie cutter thing since I'm assuming they might be more cake like in texture. Anyone have a favorite?

This was just brought up recently. Check this thread for Rolled Sugar Cookies

Hi Kelleybean,

The following is a sugar cookie recipe which I use all the time. Rolls out beautifully.

3/4 cup butter or hard margerine, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups gluten free flour mix (I use my own basic one: 2 parts brown rice flour, 2/3 potato starch, 1/3 tapioca starch)

1 tsp xanthum gum

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp cardamon (optional but good)

1/4 tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar in large bowl. Add egg and vanilla. Beat.

Mix remaining ingredients in separate bowl. Stir into batter. Roll out 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into shapes. Bake on greased cookie sheet in 350 F (175 C) oven for about 10 minutes. Cool. Decorate.

I usually stick the mixture in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden slightly before rolling. I love this recipe and the cookies stay really crunchy for days.

Good luck.
