Gluten Free Chewy Sugar Cookies
 
 Before going gluten free I was known for my sugar cookies. Every year I would make them and turn them into little eatable pieces of art. I avoided making them for several years after going gluten free. However, once I mastered some big recipes like my Gluten Free Dairy Free Vanilla Cake I knew I was up for this challenge.

I had put it off making gluten free dairy free cut out cookies for so long because I was honestly scared to figure out the dairy free aspect of it. However, vegan butter is amazing these days. After rolling up my sleeves and playing around with different flours and textures I was truly happy to have make a gluten free chewy sugar cookies recipe.

How do I make these Gluten Free Dairy Free Cut Out Cookies?

In a stand mixer cream the eggs, sugar, dairy free butter and vanilla on medium speed for 5 minutes. Turn the mixer off and the GF AP flour and tapioca starch. Turn stand mixer on low speed, add the baking soda, xanthan gum and salt. Mix on low for one minute. Remove the dough from the stand mixer, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a half hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Once refrigerated, remove dough and cut into 4 sections. Take one section and put the rest back in the fridge. Lightly grease your baking sheet. On a non-stick surface lightly dusted with tapioca starch place the dough on it and lightly dust the top of dough with tapioca starch as well. With plastic wrap on top of the dough, roll the dough to be ¼ inch thick. Use cookie cutters to create your shapes and bake for 10 minutes. Remove after 10 minutes and allow cookies to sit on a cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Remove and place on parchment paper to cool. Frost once completely cooled

For the Icing Sift the powder sugar into a bowl. Add the vanilla and dairy free milk. Stir until you have a medium thick consistency. Separate the icing into individual bowls if you are coloring it and add the food coloring. Transfer to piping bag to decorate.

* If the cookie cutters are sticking to the dough, lightly dust them with the tapioca starch.
* If the starch doesn’t melt into the dough you can take a damp paper towel and lightly blot the cookie before putting into the oven
* I have made these with two different rice flours in my All Purpose Flour Blend and they each produced different textures. Keep that in mind, I recommend Bob’s Red Mill
