And if you think this recipe looks familiar, it might be because you follow my gluten free blog and saw this recipe on there a couple years ago. The simple fact of the matter is that I hate running two blogs and I eventually want to phase out Yammie's Glutenfreedom. So, once in a while I might post a recipe from there on here and just develop a nice gluten free section here on the Noshery.
Anyway, about these cookies. Sugar cookies aren't usually my thing. They have a tendency to be dry and flavorless, tasting like nothing but sugar. I usually head for the fudge and peanut butter blossoms before I start looking at the sugar cookies. But these... These cookies are different.
One day, I had the idea to use Coconut Flour
But then I saw that it had no eggs, a bunch of liquid was added, and the batter was supposed to be "moist and fluffy", I had a bad feeling that these might turn out cakey, but I was too far in to turn back now.
My worries vanished when I pulled the cookies out of the oven. They were beautiful.
I decided to make a few smaller batches to experiment. In one, I tried replacing the butter with Coconut Oil
In another batch I tried leaving out the coconut flour and adding more rice flour to replace it (since coconut flour isn't always around the house). It definitely worked, but I would definitely use the coconut flour if you can!
Here's what I found in my experiments...
The coconut oil ones were definitely the best. They were the chewiest, thickest, and they were also the sturdiest. The rice flour ones were a bit more crumbly and the flavor wasn't quite as good, but they weren't bad. I would make them again if I ever don't have coconut flour around. The actual recipe using butter was good too, but not as good as the coconut oil.
So, in summary, I highly suggest you make these using coconut oil and coconut flour, but if you don't have those ingredients around, you can easily swap them out and you'll still have an awesome gluten free cookie. The frosting is dairy free, but if you don't have the ingredients try this buttercream recipe. Have fun.
