Christmas Cookies

Today I made up a batch of sugar cookies (my fav cookie of all time!). To me, it isn't Christmas until we've made sugar cookies.

Here is the recipe:
Sugar Cookie Recipe:
1 1/2 cups organic powdered sugar
1 cup organic Earth Balance vegan butter
1 teaspoon organic vanilla
1 large organic egg
2 1/2 cups rice flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon xanthan gum

In a large bowl beat powdered sugar, Earth Balance, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium until well blended. Stir in the remaining dry ingredients. Cover tightly (I used saran wrap) and refrigerate at least two hours. 

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line your cooking tray with parchment paper. 

Divide dough in half. Roll one half out to 1/4 inch thick on parchment paper. (place a sheet of saran wrap over top of dough before rolling out to prevent it from sticking to the rolling pin) Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Gather scraps into a ball, roll and cut again. Repeat with remaining scraps and second half of dough.  Place cookies on parchment paper on cooking tray. 

Bake for 7-9 minutes or until edges are just turning golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack. 

Xander was LOVING his! We had to sneak a couple before dinner!

So delicious! 

They are gluten free, dairy free and organic. It is nice to be able to have a treat and not feel like I am poisoning my kids!
