Sugar Cookies

Perfect texture and taste!

The most wonderful time of the year comes with the most delicious, gluten-free Sugar Cookies! Recipe dating back to my Grandmother’s sister, these are the perfect texture and taste light, crisp, subtle butter flavor and not too sweet (despite being slightly over-decorated by my elves!).

Every holiday season we have our annual Cookie Baking Day with longtime friends & family, and it is always one of my favorite days of the holiday season! Cookie baking day has been a tradition since I was a kid and the crew here today included 6 kids. That have been baking together since they were babies. Two of them were diagnosed with celiac disease seven years ago and we’ve been baking our family recipes gluten-free ever since (we like using GF Jules flour).

Sugar Cookies
These are the perfect texture and taste light, crisp, subtle butter flavor and not too sweet.
Recipe type: Bakery, Cookies, Dessert, Holidays
Cuisine: Gluten-Free
  • 1 cup butter (I use 1 stick salted, 1 stick unsalted)
  • 1½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 cups flour, then 1½ c more flour (I use GF Jules)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the sugar and mix very well with the butter.
  3. Add the vanilla and milk, the 2 eggs and blend well.
  4. Sift together the 3 cups of flour, baking powder and salt and then add to the above mixture, beating well after each addition. (Rather than sifting, I just place in a bowl and mix with a pastry cutter)
  5. Add 1½ cup more sifted flour or less as needed. The idea is that it should be stiff enough to roll.
  6. Chill (at least 1 hour - I usually make the day before and then take it out to almost room temp so that it is easy to roll) and roll and cut out, sprinkle with colored sugar.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes on ungreased tin.
Note: Recipe can be cut in half.
