Top Tips For Making

  • It’s super important that your gluten-free flour contains xanthan gum in order to get the perfect texture for your cookies. If you can’t find flour that already has it included, you can buy xanthan gum separately. Add 1 teaspoon for every cup of gluten-free flour.
  • Make sure when you are rolling out your dough to check frequently underneath to make sure the dough is not sticking to the surface it’s being rolled on. If the dough gets too warm and sticky during rolling, place a chilled cookie sheet on top to cool it down.
  • If your cookie cutters are getting stuck to the dough, you can grease them with a little butter or sprinkle a little powdered sugar or flour on them.
  • After making, your cookies will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week.

Why This Recipe Is Perfect With Danish Creamery

I love how creamy and real Danish Creamery butter is, and this recipe perfectly highlights its rich taste.

Eating good, real food is super important to my family, and Danish Creamery not only uses the freshest ingredients but their butter is also growth hormone-free and cows from happy, pasture-raised cows raised on family farms. Definitely makes me feel good about what I’m eating and serving my family!

Decorating Tips & Ideas

We like usingroyal icing for decorating our sugar cookies. It’seasy to make with just 3 ingredients and a hand-mixer.

Scoop your royal icing into separate bowls or cups and mix in food coloring, then spoon each color of icing into separate plastic sandwich bagsCut off a corner of the bag and pipe your icing onto each cookie after baking and letting it cool.

Sprinkles (or jimmies, as they’re called in my house), edible glitter, and candiesare other great decorating options.
