Snowflake Sugar Cookies (gluten-free); rejoice in the festivities with this delicious and classic sugar cookie that is gluten-free, soft and heavenly.
I think if I have name my kids’ favorite cookies, it will most certainly be –sugar cookies. Friends, sugar cookies don’t last at my house. It’s good and bad. Right? The Santa Cookie jar I have in my kitchen, never gets shut for more then two minutes until another hand scoops up a cookie 🙂
So I tried to make them a ‘lil better for ya (and the kiddos) but can’t mess with the formula too much, and fact is, these are called s-u-g-a-r cookies for a reason. So eat moderately and most importantly, share with others.
I made this one pretty batch while the kids were at school. I knew these sugar cookies wouldn’t last one frosting spreading or photo shoot if the kids were here. Sure enough, on my second batch only a day later, the kids were so eager to eat the cookies, I barely rolled them into a ball. Hahaha. My kids love frosting the cookies themselves because they can over-do it, we all know it 🙂
These cookies are so soft, buttery and tasty with just the right amount of organic frosting and snowflake sprinkles. The perfect treat to share this Holiday season, and if you got a bit of time, double the batch and gift wrap a few of these to give to someone special.
