Are you craving gluten free sugar cookies? I sure thought so when I discovered these delicious cookies just a few months ago. I had to get some of them as an experiment, so I began to bake one each day for two weeks straight. My results were absolutely amazing! These sugar cookie love treats will leave your taste buds a true happy mess, but believe me, you’ll be smiling again in no time.
Gluten Free Sugar Cookies
There are many different kinds of recipes for gluten free sugar cookies. One of the most popular ones is the Chewy Mocha Roll. This roll has a smooth chewy texture and a wonderful aroma of chocolate and warm coffee. It’s very simple to make, but if you’re looking for a healthier option, then this might not be the way to go. The standard recipe calls for molasses and vegetable shortening, which does contain sugar.
The great thing about the Chewy Mocha Roll, along with many other gluten free sugar cookies, is the fact that there is no baking powder or flour involved. All you need is xanthan gum, tapioca starch, and nonfat margarine. There are many different flavors, including strawberry, but red mill is my favorite.
To make the dough, simply mix the tapioca starch, nonfat margarine, xanthan gum, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Then, using a measuring cup, take a tablespoon of this mixture and add it to the dry flour mixture. Mix thoroughly. Once the ingredients are completely combined, make a well in the center of the bowl and add in the baking powder.
Next, you will want to mix in the cold milk and the dry cereal. Mix until completely blended. Now, it’s time to make the delicious red bean sugar cookies! This recipe comes from the book “Cookie Guide to Gluten Free Diet” by Dr. Deming. I have also been cooking gluten free sugar cookies with this recipe for years, and you can find this book at your local library or online.
The ingredients you will need for these cookies are: three tablespoons of whole grain flour, two and a half cups of cold milk, one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract, and two tablespoons of tapioca starch. It is important to have a 350 degrees Silpat roller handy when you are mixing all of your ingredients together. Also make sure to use the right combination of ingredients. These gluten free sugar cookies are really beautiful. They have a smooth outside and a chewy center that will make them taste like heaven!
It really is simple to make gluten free sugar cookies. The hardest part is just in mixing all of the ingredients together. Once you get the process started, you can create delicious and yummy cookies all year long! You can either make the cookies wet or dry. Wet cookies require an electric mixer to make sure that the ingredients are completely combined before you put the second cup of milk.
After the dry mixture comes together, you will then put the wet mixture into the mixer and begin to beat it at medium speed. It may be a good idea to stir the batter at this point because the gluten free sugar cookies will have a tendency to come together more smoothly this way. Then, add the second cup of milk and continue to beat it at medium speed. When the dry mixture comes out, you will then have a tasty gluten free sugar cookie recipe that you can eat with delicious toppings such as fruit, nuts, or even chocolate.
