Sugar Cookies

 Simple and delicious! 

~ Gluten, dairy, nut free ~

2 Dozen


1/2 cup vegan butter

1/2 cup shortening

1 cup white sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp gluten-free vanilla

2 3/4 cup gluten-free flour

(I used 1 cup of pancake mix and 1 3/4 white rice flour)

1 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder (unless in flour)

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 


2) Blend butter, shortening and sugar in a bowl.  Mix in the egg and vanilla. Then flour, xanthan gum, baking soda and powder.

3) Roll dough into 1 inch balls or use a  cookie dough scoop. Do not flatten dough balls.


Optional: Put a couple of sprinkles on the dough before putting them in the oven. 


This recipe didn't work well for shaped cookies because the cookies expanded and flattened. 

4) Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Let cool. 

Once cookies have cooled to room temperature decorate with icing and sprinkles.
