GF Rolled Sugar Cookies

Halloween is approaching and I finally found the perfect rolled sugar cookie to make with my gluten free/dairy free kids.  These cookies roll perfectly and don’t need to be refrigerated before rolling.  We made adorable pumpkin and bat cookies.  They freeze really well too!

Ingredients:

1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 cup potato starch
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar (I use beet sugar)
1 cup shortening
1 egg
2 teaspoons GF vanilla extract
potato starch, for kneading

In the bowl of a mixer, cream together sugar and shortening.  Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined.  Add all dry ingredients and combine until the dough forms a ball.

With some potato starch on your hands, make the dough into a ball and roll out onto a potato starched surface.  Roll to 1/4″ thickness.   Cut into shapes using your favorite cookie cutters.

Place on greased cookie sheet at bake for 12 minutes.  Cool on rack.  Decorate and enjoy!  These freeze very nicely.

  1. Great post!! Who doesn’t love sugar cookies?! Hmm, I have never heard of beet sugar – I’ll have to check it out… I’m able to eat regular “white sugar”, but like to incorporate healthier options into my gluten free baking.

  2. Maureen,

    I replace cane sugar with beet sugar. I am intolerant of cane sugar and beet sugar has been a great substitute when baking.

  3. that looks like a great recipie. im going to have to try it out.
