A sweet delicious cookie

We have a favourite sugar cookie recipe that always works. I thought I'd try an experiment using wheat and gluten free cookies so I could nibble one too! This is the result - a crumbly, light and crunchy sweet cookie that keeps fresh in a cookie tin for up to 2 weeks (if they last that long). Delicious with morning coffee or for afternoon tea.

  2. Combine flour and baking powder and set aside. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy ; add egg and vanilla until combined one ingredient at a time to prevent curdling.
  3. Gently pulse in flour and baking powder mixture until just combined.

      Tell your Dad to watch the cooking time carefully. The recipe works well but the first time I made them I overcooked them so burnt their bums:-)

      Awesome recipe, I am sure my dad is going to love this article when I tell him about this recipe.. He loves cookies and is sensitive to gluten.

      Hello teaches12345, thank you. Yes, eliminating gluten from my diet has sure improved my overall wellbeing. However, I am also concerned that people who are celiacs can be put at risk by cross contamination as companies jump on the gluten free bandwagon - a little like greenwashing that isnt!
