Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : Gluten-Free Christmas Cut-Out Cookies


Gluten-Free Christmas Cut-Out Cookies

 (Frosting cookies obviously isn't a strength of mine, however eating them is a completely different story)

The tradition of grandma's Christmas sugar cookies is one that will not be foiled because of a silly old gluten problem. The chewy, moist deliciousness is unlike any other cut-out cookie out there. I promise. Therefore, I give you the gift of the gluten-free adapted version of the best sugar cookie you will ever taste.

Gluten-Free Cut-Out Sugar Cookies
Recipe adapted the Betty Crocker recipe
Serving size:  2 dozen
Prep time: 25 minutes

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups gluten-free flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2  tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream (this is the golden secret!)

Heat oven to 425°F. Mix butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla thoroughly. Blend dry ingredients together. Sift them into the wet sugar mixture alternately with the sour cream. Make sure dough is well-floured so it can be handled in your hands without sticking (add gluten-free flour by the tablespoon until you get the right consistency). Divide dough into a small ball; place on well-floured wax or pastry paper, cover it with another sheet of wax paper and roll out to 1/4" thickness. Cut out shapes with desired holiday cookie cutters. Place on greased baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Enjoy!

I cook/bake gluten-free for my hubby who has an intolerance and I have to say as difficult as it was in the beginning to find/adapt good gluten-free recipes I'm really actually enjoying discovering/experimenting with recipes now. I've been looking for a good gluten-free sugar cookies recipe to make this weekend. I think I'll try yours! Thanks!

Boooo! I am sorry to hear that. Hope your cookies turn out and good luck with the GF living! :)

It is a huge life transition, but it's pretty manageable, huh? My only qualm with GF baking is the flour. Still trying to find the perfect one.
