So the original reason the girls came over the other day was to make sugar cookies. Sometimes it is helpful to read the directions for the cookies before they get there because after we started fixing up the cookie dough, then I saw where it had to chill in the fridge for 2 hours. That’s why we made the Funfetti Cookies. I say we, I really wasn’t involved other than calling out the directions. Zebra Girl, Tbug and Moo were in charge and Tbug knows my kitchen well enough to keep things under control.
With Moo being Gluten Free, we made these cookies Moo friendly by using Oat Flour. Holy yum! I’m not sure I’ll want to go back to regular flour for sugar cookies! YUM!
Tbug got a cooking set for cookies & brownies for Christmas one year. Here’s our Gluten Free Sugar cookies
What you’ll need: 1/2 cup butter, softened; 1 cup sugar; 1 egg (so almost A friendly, she can’t have eggs); 1 1/2 tsp vanilla (eh eyeball it!); 2 cups Oat flour; 1 1/2 tsp baking powder; 1/2 tsp salt.
Beat the butter & sugar with a mixer. Add the egg and vanilla and beat on medium speed.
In a separate bowl mix together your dry ingredients. Then slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Place dough in the fridge for 2 hours.
Once the dough has chilled spread some flour on the counter and roll your dough out. Let the girls cut out sugar cookies!
After 2 hrs, place the cookies on a cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
The girls were really good about taking turns with the sugar cookie cutting. Sadly I broke one of them coming out of the oven but one of the other girls got to make an extra so we wound up with 24 (25 really) cookies. I told them to split the cookies evenly.
Then it was time to whip up the icing (we used this icing recipe) and decorate the cookies.
I was so proud of them and they way they all got along and shared! I may have threatened if they didn’t I might have to like eat all their cookies or something :).
Although when they were done they left all the stuff on the table for me to clean up. And because of that, my fingers were dyed pinkish purple for the remainder of the evening. And no, I didn’t eat the icing…
|Sorry the photo is a bit blurry… the camera focused on my jeans…
Oh and I may have burnt my finger getting the cookies in and out of the oven. I now have a battle wound.
