Hi This is Alice, Landria’s daughter. Since I made these cookies and my mom just got needles put into her elbow yesterday (gross, I hate needles) and typing is a pain right now for her, my mom thought I should write this post, so here it goes.
This is my mom’s blog and she cooks a lot of great food, but I do most of the baking, and I love it! Sugar cookies are one of my favorite things to bake and I wanted to share this recipe. While I love the Paleo treats my mom makes, when it comes to flours, I really prefer the Cup4Cup gluten-free flour. My mom gets it from vitacost.com or Target usually. It tastes exactly like normal flours. In my math class if we have a test then we are allowed to bake something and bring it in and no one notices that my treats are gluten free! So if you are new to gluten free baking this is a good way to start.
Hope you enjoy them! Happy Valentines Day!
Happy 9th birthday to my dorky brother Tate! I love you!
I hope he likes the cake I made him (using Cup4Cup GF flour of course)
- 1 cup cane or coconut palm sugar
- 10 tbsp soft grass fed butter
- 1 cup and 6 tbsp gluten free flour (Alice loves Cup4Cup)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Beat soften butter and sugar together.
- Add dry ingredients to the mix.
- Add egg and vanilla and mix until the batter is smooth.
- Place 1 tbsp cookie mix onto grease baking sheet and cook for approximately 12 minutes.
- Do NOT try to use a cookie cutter on these. In full disclosure, the ones in the picture weren't as good as the ones I typically make (that won't work on the cookie cutter). I want you to have the best tasting sugar cookies rather than the ones easiest to use with a cookie cutter.
