It’s snowing yet again in New Jersey which usually means I have a yen for baking! Baking Sugar Cookies, to be more exact! I love sugar cookies. They are probably my most favorite kind of cookie! Since I can’t just whip a regular sugar cookie recipe which includes all that glorious wheat flour, I’m opting for a really delicous Gluten Free (white flour free) recipe I found on the Bob’s Red Mill website.
In food processor, blend butter (room temperature, not melted), honey, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder, baking soda, egg white and lemon peel, blending until mixture forms large ball. If using electric mixer, blend ingredients, then add water if needed, 1 tablespoon at a time. Shape into flat disk, cover tightly and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick vegetable spray. Preheat oven to 325°F. Shape dough into 24 one-inch balls and roll in cinnamon-sugar. Place 2” apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are set. Switch position of pan(s) halfway through baking for even heat distribution. Remove from oven; cool two minutes before transferring to rack to cool. Store in airtight container.
Makes 24 cookies.
Mmmm….I can already smell the fantastic aroma of these sugar cookies baking in the oven and filling your home with pure joy!
