My non-GF partner said last night these were the best sugar cookies he’s ever had. Going to adjust the recipes and add them to my regularly offered items soon.
Cookie: https://iowagirleats.com/2017/12/15/gluten-free-sugar-cookies/ I did the cutout recipe and found that the fridge time was sooooo important. I actually cut the dough on parchment and put it in the freezer for several minutes before trying to remove the extra. The dough goes soft VERY fast at room temp. I used KA measure for measure with great success for the GF blend.
Frosting: My bonus Grannie’s receipe.
1/2 C room temp butter (salted)
1/2 C room temp vegetable shortening
3 Cups powdered sugar, sifted to ensure NO lumps.
2 tsp clear vanilla
1 1/2 Tbsp milk
Combine and whisk together until fully mixed and fluffed. Separate into bowls for color mixing. After mixed, fill piping bags. (For these, I just snipped a small hole in the end rather than using couplers and icing tips.)
The icing will crust after a few hours enough to lightly stack them. Squishing them tightly will result in stuck cookies and smooshed frosting– but still delicious.
*Although this should go without saying, make sure all your ingredients are GF. I picked up some baking soda a few days ago while at the store that was not GF. This has also happened with spices and extracts.
