Sugar cookies are a classic confection, destined for so much more than the month-long sprint to Christmas or life on a lollipop stick, arranged in a decorative bouquet. The ultimate masters of camouflage and disguise, sugar cookies are as much an artist's medium as a blank canvas, beckoning to be dressed up as people, places, things. Whether crunchy or soft, sugar cookies are made for celebrating - wearing icing "costumes" from ice skate and autumn leaves to mini-portraits and the Eiffel Tower! While they are a natural member of the Classic Christmas Cookie Club, sugar cookies are perfect for any occasion: birthdays, bridal & baby showers, sporting events, holidays and of course, any time just for fun!
Here are 5 of my favorite gluten free sugar cookie recipes (and a few images for autumn inpsiration!) for your holiday baking pleasure! Stay tuned for a "Best of" cookie decorating coming this week!
