During the holidays NO-ONE should be excluded from all the fun, festivities, and most importantly, the FOOD! With this in mind, I wanted to share my recipe for Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies. If you are living a gluten-free lifestyle you can have your cookies and eat them too this holiday season. The best part is these cookies are every bit as — as traditional sugar cookies. With a crisp texture and a light dusting of sugar on the outside, these make great treats and gifts for any holiday occasion! How to Make Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies These are some of the easiest cookies to make, as they are what’s called “slice and bake cookies” because they start with a soft dough that is then rolled into a log and chilled. After chilling out int the fridge overnight, these cookies are sliced into little round cookies and baked. This is a super no-fuss way to make bakery-style sugar cookies. These cookies can be dressed up or down with flavors or even dipped in white or dark chocolate. How Do You Store Gluten Free Cookies?
