Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

  • Author: Mia Zarlengo
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 7 minutes
  • Total Time: 27 minutes
  • Yield: 15 cookies 1x


Soft and addicting gluten free sugar cookies. 



  • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (unless your flour blend already has it)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened 
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Frosting and sprinkles for decorating


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, xanthan gum, coconut sugar, baking powder, and pinch of sea salt until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together all remaining wet ingredients until smooth.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Be patient! This will at first be a dry and stiff dough. Once you’ve mixed everything together, use your hands to really form into a ball of dough. 
  5. Roll the dough out between 2 pieces of parchment paper (use a roller, bottle of wine, jar of sauce, whatever you have!). Roll out into about 1/2″ thick. 
  6. Use cookie cutters or anything round (I used a mason jar lid) to cut out the cookies. Repeat the roll out process with any scraps of dough until all dough is used up.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
