Nobody should have to miss out on having a cookie (or two or three) just because they follow a gluten free diet. Our gluten free sugar cookies are a delicious treat that everyone will enjoy!
3 Tbsp. butter
¼ cup DateME Date Paste
2 Tbsp. coconut sugar
1 large egg
1 cup + 1 Tbsp. gluten free flour
½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Gently melt the butter and date paste together in a microwave-safe bowl 15 seconds at a time until the date paste is pliable and soft. Mix in the coconut sugar and vanilla extract.
Once the mixture is slightly cooled, whisk in the egg.
Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda and slowly mix it into the wet ingredients. Mix until combined but do not overmix.
Form the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes.
Remove the dough from the fridge and flatten with a rolling pin between two pieces of parchment paper. If the dough begins to stick, dust it with flour. Roll until the dough is about ¼ inch thick. Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out shapes.
Carefully transfer the shapes to a parchment covered sheet pan. Roll the scraps left over into a ball and repeat rolling and cutting out shapes until you have used up all of the dough.
Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes or until they have started to turn golden.
Allow the cookies to fully cool then decorate with your favorite icing and toppings.
