Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

free from: gluten, dairy (Low FODMAP friendly)

My mom always makes the best sugar cookies. Whenever she makes a batch, they never last long! I have wanted to try to make them more tummy friendly for a while and we finally did it together, so I couldn’t be more excited to share these gluten free sugar cookies.

I made them into hearts and used red food coloring for the frosting for Valentine’s Day.

I’ve also made them for Halloween:

Below you will find recipes for both the sugar cookie and frosting. These are gluten and dairy free, made with gfJules Flour.

FOR DIETARY ADJUSTMENTS: The only non-vegan ingredient is eggs, you could try to sub a flax egg but I have not personally tested this. If you prefer refined-sugar free, I recommend using monkfruit. For grain free, you can try a grain free all purpose flour like this. Again, I have not tested these methods (yet) but based on previous use they should work. Let me know if you do try them!

This recipe makes 3 dozen gluten free sugar cookies.

Sugar Cookie Recipe

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix butter and sugar together, then add in eggs and vanilla. In a new bowl, combine salt, baking powder and flour. Slowly add flour mixture into the first bowl and mix until dough is formed. Let dough chill for 5-10 minutes.

Put some gluten free flour down on your surface and then roll dough out to desired thickness. Use cookie cutters and place on greased baking sheet.

Bake cookies for 5-7 minutes. Let cool then frost with recipe below!

Frosting Recipe

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp gluten free flour
  • 3/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Optional: food coloring

Whisk together milk, salt and flour in saucepan on medium heat. Stir consistently until thick and bubbling. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a mixing bowl, stir sugar and butter together. Then add cooled flour mixture, vanilla and (optional) a drop of food coloring.

If mixture is not thick enough, try adding a little more sugar. Once fully combined, frost cookies and enjoy! Optional: add some fun sprinkles πŸ™‚

Store in fridge for optimal freshness, or freeze for later.
