I heart Valentine’s Day. I know that cynics abound, but love, true love, doesn’t just have to mean buying stuff for your Valentine.  It can be celebrating our love for our friends, kids, family, life itself–and yes, our lovers. It can be about sugar, and cookies and sugar cookies….like these.

These gluten-free cookies are simple and sweet…and the dough is a dream. They can be rolled and cut out into any shape, obviously. But today it’s hearts, more hearts and cupids, with a dusting of red sparkly sugar.

Love is in the air…or maybe it’s just sugar. But that’s pretty much the same thing right? Ahem. Happy Valentine’s Day!

These classic, gluten-free sugar cookies are soft and sweet–exactly like you remember from your gluten-eating days. Decorate them with sprinkles or top them with whipped frosting, then share with the ones you love.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add egg and extracts and beat until evenly combined.
  3. In another small bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan, baking powder and salt. Add to the butter/sugar mixture and beat until it comes together in large clumps.
  4. Turn dough out onto a square of parchment and knead together (using your hands) until a nice smooth ball of dough froms. It should only take a couple of turns. Cover dough with another sheet of parchment and roll out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.
