Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

Previous Next

Our gluten free sugar cookies are a great base for spreading icing for any holiday occasion. What will you make for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas? Will you make a sugar-cookie house instead of a gingerbread one?  The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!

I really like this recipe as it is not overly sweet, the cookies are more like a traditional short-bread cookie. Since the cookies are not so sweet it opens up the option for how to use the dough. What will you use the dough to create?
