I told you I was craving sugar cookie and when I get a craving I need to satisfy it!
When I was younger one of my friends used to snack on butter with sugar, usually she would put it on saltine’s but sometimes she would literally take pieces of butter sprinkle it with sugar and eat it! I always thought it was strange to see her just eat a slice of butter with sugar on it. But, too be honest she was basically eating a raw sugar cookie, minus a few ingredients but butter and sugar are pretty much the star ingredients in sugar cookies… so was she gross or genius? I’ll let you decide!
These cookies were exactly what I was looking for; minimal ingredients. I am not joking when I tell you ALL the gf sugar cookie recipes I came across had several different flours in it which I thought was unnecessary so I decided I needed to make them easier. I am so glad these cookies turned out great! Even my friend who is not gluten free gave them her seal of approval.
Gluten Free Funfetti Sugar Coookies:
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15
1 cup unsalted Kerrygold Butter room temperature (you can use regular butter but I am a huge fan of grassfed butter)
1 cup of sugar
1 egg room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup jimmies (or sprinkles whatever you call them)
1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
2.) In a bowl mix all dry ingredients together and put it to the side.
3.) In a large mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar with a stand or hand mixer. Mix so butter is light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla. Slowly add in flour and mix until combined well. Add in sprinkles and mix.
4.) Drop cookies on your pans and bake for 10 minutes, or additional time if needed. Mine took about 15 minutes.
5.) Remove from oven and let cool before eating. Store in airtight container or sealable bag to maintain freshness.
