Sugar Cookies

  • 2 cups all purpose gluten free flower
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup earth balance
  • 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg, almond extract and almond milk, mix well. Add flour mixture to wet mixture and mix well. Scoop dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.


Be sure to allow the 2 inches between cookies because they will expand quite a bit while baking!

We made the following icing and let people decorate their own cookies!

  • 2.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp earth balance
  • 1 Tbsp cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients. Add more water as needed to reach desired consistency. Add food coloring if desired. You can substitute almond milk for water.
