Christmas means cookie time. I love sugar cookies for their simplicity and their seasonality, plus bonus sprinkles! We just made our first batch using the gluten free recipe from Minimalist Baker. We followed the instructions fairly closely though we made them vegan by substituting flax egg for regular egg and rice for regular milk.
We popped them in the oven for about 10 minutes which resulted in soft, even fluffy cookies. We made ours a bit bigger so we ended up with around 20 cookies rather than 36 as indicated on the site. The most fun part was adding the sprinkles.
