Gluten-free sugar cookies are the perfect sweet treat for those times you're feeling indulgent. Our recipe is easily modified to be dairy-free as well. We even have a wonderful dairy-free icing recipe available upon request. 

Yield: approximately 60 cookies
Total prep time (active and inactive): 3 hours

  • 1 ½ cup butter or your favorite non-dairy substitute
  • 2 cups maple sugar, or your favorite sweetener (you may also use regular sugar, but we like to promote the healthiest possible ingredients, even when is comes to a sugar cookie!) 
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract (you can also use lemon or orange extract)
  • 4 eggs*
  • 3 cups of Breads From Anna Dairy & Corn Free Bread Mix
  • 2 cups potato starch
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine shortening, sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract, and eggs. Cream until smooth.
  2. Add Breads From Anna Dairy & Corn Free Bread Mix, potato starch, baking powder, and salt. Blend until well combined. 
  3. Cover and chill for 1 hour, or overnight. 
  4. Once chilled, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Roll out dough on floured surface (use potato starch to flour surface), 1/4-1/2 thick. Sprinkle potato starch as needed to prevent dough sticking to rolling pen and surface. Cut into shape with any cookie cutter.
  6. Place cookies 1 inch apart on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.  
  7. Bake 6-8 minutes, cool completely.
Top these off with your favorite icing.  
* to replace the eggs, mix 1 cup milk, non-dairy drink, or water (use full fat coconut milk for best results) and 2 heaping teaspoons of baking powder (add baking powder to flour blend)
