These classic cutout cookies are great for cookie cutting and decorating.
1 cup unsalted butter or coconut oil, room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
1 egg (L)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2½ cups Extra White gold gluten-free all purpose flour
Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and granulated sugar. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until combined
2. Gradually add the flour to the butter mixture, blend until you reach to a nice dough consistency. Turn out the dough onto a clean surface and shape into a flattened disk. Wrap the disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 -30 minutes.
3. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper, or a surface lightly dusted with gluten-free flour, until it is ¼-inch thick. Cut out cookies using cookie cutters and transfer to the baking sheets. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the cookies for 7 to 12 minutes, until golden. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving. May be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
