How to Make Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Cookies


  • 1Cream the butter and shortening together well.
  • 2Add in the egg, vanilla beat in well combined.
  • 3Whisk all the dry ingredients in a bowl together to combine.

    Then add to the creamed mixture and combine well.
  • 4Wrap in saran, and chill a while.

    Long enough just to handle and roll into balls.
  • 5Roll samll amounts into balls about a teaspoon size.
  • 6Combine 3 tbsp. white sugar and 1 tbsp. cinnamon together. Roll the balls into mixture.

    Place on a light parchment lined cookie sheet. You can flatten slightly .
  • 7Place in oven 350 preheated, and bake 10 minutes.
  • 8Note you can use all butter in recipe, but cookies seem to spread more. If you use all shortening they tend to get hard stale like faster. So I use a combination total of 1/2 cup.

    I bake on middle rack on a light coloured aluminum cookie sheet. Rice flour products brown faster than normal, so keep using a light sheet, then you are more in control of cooking times.
