what you need to make these bomb af gluten free sugar cookies

You guys, these cookies are so easy to make and there’s no chilling required! YAY!

Here’s what you need:

  • vegan butter at room temperature (or regular if that’s your thing)
  • Truvia or granulated sweetener
  • brown sugar erythritol (Swerve) or regular light brown sugar
  • gluten free baking flour 
  • tapioca flour
  • baking soda
  • vanilla extract
  • almond milk

for the frosting:

  • vegan butter at room temperature (or regular)
  • powdered erythritol or regular (I personally like to split it)
  • almond milk
  • red food coloring
  • all the sprinkles!

In a mixing bowl, I used a handheld mixer to beat the butter with the Truvia and brown sugar erythritol until fluffy and well incorporated and then added in the vanilla extract.

In another bowl, I stirred together the gluten free baking flour, tapioca flour and baking soda until combined and then I slowly added the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stirred until combined. Finally, I added in the almond milk one tablespoon at a time until a smooth dough formed before rolling out the cookie dough.
