GFCF Snickerdoodles

Another one of our staple cookies at Christmas time is the snickerdoodle.  I just love the way the cinnamon fills the air.

Free of:  Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soy, Corn*, Nuts

1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum*
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl sift flour, xanthan/ guar gum, baking powder, and salt.  
  • Cream the shortening and sugar together until fluffy. 
  • Beat in egg replacer.
  • Beat in half the flour into the sugar mixture.  Beat in the second half, until well mixed.
  • Pinch off small pieces of dough and roll into marble sized balls.  
  • In a small bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar.  
  • Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Flatten with the bottom of a glass.  
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 4 to 6 minutes or until lightly brown.  
  • Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before removing them.
