Merry Christmas Day with Gluten free sugar cookies!

Hi Everyone!  I am so glad to be posting it is a wonderful time of year.  We all have our favorite days during the year, for me it’s Christmas.  I love everything about it.  From spending time with Mark,Tyler and Jenna and the rest of our family and friends.  I love the joy and laughter that fills the air.  People for the most part seem to have more of that this time of year.   Watching our children Christmas morning opening those gifts that they talked about all year long and watching them spread the joy by giving others gifts.    And for me the most special gift that came to earth all those years ago, Jesus Christ.

One of the things we love to do at our house during the Christmas season is to bake cookies.  This year we tried something new with sugar cookies.  Wilton has a new cookie pan out with beautiful little imprints in all ready for your batter.  wilton cookie pan

This little find made things much simpler, I don’t know about your household but for ours there are days when time is so hard to come by.   This pan makes the cookies puffy, they are light and airy.  I think it would work well with cake and muffin batter as well.  I’ll let you know.  We’ll be trying that soon enough 🙂

Another nice thing is they just slide out of the pan all ready with pretty imprints on them and in all different shapes.

This little helper just loved decorating the cookies, she’s all about the glitz.  The more sugar and color on it the better 🙂

If you would like to try our gluten free sugar cookie recipe here is what you will need.

1 cup of sweet white sorghum flour

1 cup gluten free all purpose flour (recipe on our blog)

1/4 cup of millet flour

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

2 sticks of unsalted butter room temp

1 cup of sugar

1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 egg

What you do next.

Mix all dry ingredients and wet separetly

slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet, mix till well incorporated.

Preheat oven to 350F once the oven is ready to go place cookie dough into Wilton cookie tray about 1/2 way full or you can use a regular cookie tray.  I would recommend putting down some parchment paper first on a regular cookie tray.   Once the batter has been dropped by teaspoon or cookie scooper.  Bake cookies for 12 minutes.  When the cookies  are done take cookies out and let cool on a cooling rack.  When they are completely cooled they are ready for decorating.  We used Betty Crocker gluten free whipped icing and then put sugar sprinkles on top.  Really it is what ever your heart desires, just make sure your having fun while your doing it 🙂  Cookies decorated on rack

Hope your Christmas is everything you hoped for this year.   And that you have a wonderful day!
