Gluten-Free Christmas Sugar Cookies


3 cups powdered sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups butter
6 eggs
1 Tbsp salt
1/4 cup vanilla
1 cup amaranth flour
2 cups potato starch
2 cups sweet rice flour
4 cups brown rice flour
2 Tbsp xanthan gum
3 Tbsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 325. Mix together the flours, starch, xanthan gum and baking powder with a whisk until well-combined. Set aside. Cream together the sugars, butter, eggs, vanilla and salt. Add flour mixture, about 1/4 at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon. Once the flour mixture is mostly incorporated, knead the dough in the bowl, slowly punching the dough down in the middle and folding the sides of the dough into the middle. Or, put the dough on a non-stick surface (like a silicone mat or a marble slab), and knead it on there. The mixture will have the consistency of Play-Dough, but not too soft. If it is too dry, add a Tbsp of water at a time until it will gather into a ball. Resist adding water if at all possible. The dough works best if it is not very moist.
Roll out your cookies and cut them unto your shapes.Brush with egg and sprinkle with colored sugars.

About contessacatering

I went to The Art Institute of Seattle where I graduated with a full food science degree in Baking and pastry and culinary. After that working at several upscale resorts such as the Royal Hawaiian, in Oahu, The Kapalua Bay hotel in Maui and the Ritz Carlton, The Alexis and Monaco in Seattle. Then landing in Phoenix. In all of these resorts I worked side by side with some of the best chefs in the country. Making cakes for people such as Robert Mondovi’s 90th birthday. Learning how luxury and customer service can make any company successful, especially when it comes to cake and food.
