Perfect Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies are so soft and chewy. The texture is unlike any other gluten-free sugar cookie recipe. These cookies are simple to make and the rich buttery flavor is astounding!
I made these Perfect Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies a few weeks ago after hearing from my Sister and Uncle that they had never really had a good gluten-free sugar cookie. They both have celiac disease and had to give up a lot of their favorite foods after they were diagnosed.
One day when I was walking down the baking section at the grocery store, I saw a gluten-free all purpose flour mix. It peaked my curiosity and I bought it. It’s great that I don’t have to buy a bunch of different flours to make one recipe. I like to buy the all-purpose flour that already has the xanthan gum in it.
I have used both Pillsbury gluten-free all-purpose flour and Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour. Both brands worked fabulous in this recipe.
The cookie dough is the same consistency as regular sugar cookie dough. I was expecting the dough to be sticky, but it wasn’t. It was really easy to work.
The texture of these cookies is what I am really excited about. It doesn’t have a really grainy or crumbly texture. They are soft and chewy and will stay soft for days. I can’t wait for you to try them!
