Cozy festive socks, check. Steaming spiced tea, check. Deliciously warm gluten-free cookies, about to be checked! I don’t know about you, but I can eat gluten-free cookies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I’m newer to baking gluten-free so I’ve asked far and wide to find the best gluten-free cookie recipe. Great all year round, we’d like to share Libby’s, an honorary Nima fan, secret gluten-free sugar cookie recipe. I added Miss Jones Vanilla Buttercream Frosting for an extra treat and made mine into sandwich cookies.

Gluten-free sugar cookies ingredients

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  3. Place tablespoon sized flattened balls of dough and place them 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet or roll the dough on a floured surface ¼ inch thick and use your favorite cookie cutter to cut some fun shapes.
  4. Bake for 6-8 minutes in a preheated oven.
  5. Cool and roll on frosting to taste between two gooey cookies and voila, mouth-watering cookie sandwiches!
