Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

Here are the best Gluten Free Sugar Cookies I have ever made!  It will be my new go to recipe, whether I decorate them for each holiday or leave them plain for dunking!

With Easter right around the corner I cut out some egg shapes and iced them as well.

To start I dumped some margarine and granulated sugar into a large mixing bowl.

Then I used an electric hand mixer to cream them together.

After this I added in the eggs one at a time, beating with the electric hand mixer after each addition.

When adding the second egg, I also added in the vanilla extract.

Now the mixture was light and fluffy.

Next I added in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, baking powder and a bit of salt.

I set the electric hand mixer to low speed to blend in these dry ingredients.

To mix in the last bit of flour I used a large wooden spoon.

Once the ingredients were well mixed I turned the dough out onto some plastic wrap and shaped it into a disc about 1 inch thick.

I wrapped it up really well and placed it in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes I removed it from the fridge and I sprinkled a little bit of flour on it before I turned it out onto a lightly floured surface.

I sprinkled a little bit of flour on the now exposed side and then put plastic wrap on top.

Then I used a rolling pin to roll it out to about 1/4 inch thickness before removing the plastic wrap.

I used a shamrock shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough since St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching.

I used a spatula to carefully transfer the shamrocks to a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Then I placed the cookies in a preheated 350F for 10 minutes.

When they were done I let them cool on the pan for a couple of minutes.

I let them finish cooling on a rack.

If you do not want to decorate your cookies because you prefer to dunk them in tea or just devour them as they are, you are finished. Serve and enjoy!

For those that want an iced sugar cookie it is time to dump some icing sugar and warm water into a small mixing bowl.

I used a small rubber spatula to stir the icing sugar and water together.

Once smooth I transferred some to a smaller container and added some green food colouring.

Then I used a spreader to decorate the cookies.

These Gluten Free Sugar Cookies, all ready for St. Patrick’s Day, are a tasty, festive treat for young and old alike!  

I will definitley be adding this recipe to all my holiday baking lists!!

Easter is just around the corner so I cut half of the cookie dough into egg shapes and then decorated them to freeze until I needed them for my holiday dessert tray.

Gluten Free Sugar Cookies are the perfect treat for any occasion. These iced sugar cookies made with Bob's Red Mill flour are great for Christmas, Easter and St Patrick's Day.
