The BEST 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!

- 2 tbsp gluten free flour
- 3/4 cup pure cane sugar

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