Great great EASY recipe for cut out GF cookies that is manageable, taste good, nobody even think that it is GF cookies. Thank you!!! I was already giving up on GF cut out self bake cookies. Kids really enjoyed to make the shapes. It´s a keeper:)!
I used all purpose GF flour from Schar, that's what is available in DK and added a tsp of xanthan gum.
I had never before made a gluten free cookie, but made them for my grandson. They are simply delicious! Tender, sweet and wonderfully tasty! I added a few drops of almond extract along with the vanilla. I rolled the dough into a "log" before chilling it overnight, then sliced them about a quarter inch thick and sprinkled them with colored sugar sprinkles before baking them. They are so worth the effort, and no one would ever guess they are gluten free!
Used this recipe to make a fruit pizza and it turned out amazing! Chewy in the center and crisp at the edges. The flour mix is perfect! Works great for all cookies!
Could you give me the recipe with weights? I see that some people are having trouble with spreading and such. I want to make these but it would be easier to get it right the first time if I had flour weight to work with.
Hi Gwen, unfortunately we do not test recipes with weights here in the Test Kitchen. However, there are some great resources available online to assist in translating recipes to weight measurements.
Read all the other comments seemed I went too light on the flour. It was impossible to roll them and they spread out when baked. The taste amazing though! Comments to new bakers of this measure the flour with a heavy hand.
