Sugar Cookies {Gluten Free | Dairy Free}

Sugar cookies are almost always a part of the Christmas spirit! Heck, not just Christmas, all year around! Sugar cookies are super versatile because you can decorate them in so many different ways. Grab some cookie cutters and you’ll whip up the perfect dessert no matter the occasion!

Tips On Making These Sugar Cookies Perfection

  • Use parchment paper. When you’re rolling out the dough, put it between two parchment paper sheets. This helps you avoid using flour on the tabletop. You achieve the ‘non stick’ without the mess. YAAASS!
  • Use a hand mixer because why not? Easy, peasy!
  • Don’t skip the step of allowing your dough to sit in your fridge for a little bit. This will firm up the dough and make your cut out cookies NOT fall apart when you transfer them on the pan. Because trust me, room temp dough after you cut it and try to lift it will fall apart if you aren’t SUPER careful.
  • Get sustainable palm shortening – for the environment ya’ll! You can get some on Amazon! This is a great butter substitute when baking!
