Gluten Free Drop Sugar Cookies

Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

After a long hiatus, I have returned to post.  The recipe I am posting is based on a drop sugar cookie that my mother has been making since I was a child (I absolutely will not post how old I am, but it has been eating these cookies for a long time).  I modified this recipe so my son could have these cookies during the holiday season just as I did as a child growing up.  The recipe is easy to make and is something that you can do with your kids.  Mine always liked to do the decorating of the cookies with sprinkles although I think they spilled way more than they actually got on the cookies.

Mom's Drop Sugar Cookies (Gluten Free)

1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter
2 large eggs
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
20 ounces gluten free flour mix. ( I use King Arthur Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour)
2 tsp. xanthan gum

Cream butter and sugar.

Add in eggs, milk, and vanilla.  In separate bowl, mix together baking powder, soda, flour, and xanthan gum.  Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients until mixed well.  Drop by heaping tablespoon onto baking sheet.

If decorating, add sprinkles before baking.

Bake at 350 F for 12-14 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.


If you have not tried King Arthur Gluten Free Multipurpose flour, it is worth a try.  I find it works well with most of my recipes and I usually do my testing with this flour.  I can buy it at my local Kroger store or you can order it directly from King Arthur Flour.
